There are so many blogs out there these days about making our lives better. About taking brave steps. About Change. CHANGE. That dirty little 6-letter word that strikes paralyzing fear in the hearts and souls of so many of us otherwise rational people. You might be wondering then, why I am even considering writing a blog about change. Hasn’t that been “done”? Here is my story and why I want to reach out to all of you.
I have decided to sell my home and move to Florida. Yes, I know millions of people have done that. But here is the twist. I am a New Englander. I am single. I am a woman. And I am a baby-boomer. What a time of life to FINALLY get adventurous, eh? I do doubt that I am the first single woman to do this at my age, but I don’t know any others and maybe you don’t either. My hope in writing this blog is two-fold – first that I will gain support from my readers as I venture across this emotion-packed experience and, second, that perhaps I can help someone else considering embarking on the same adventure….or cliff dive into the unknown, depending upon your perspective or level of fear at any given time. AIEEEEE! I can’t be the only person just a bit intimidated by this. Actually, I went to one of those local AARP “Life Reimagined” meetings about a year ago and there she was – a single lady who wanted to move to Florida, but was scared. Sweetie, I know just how you feel and I hope you are out there reading this. So…. let’s do this together!
