We have been enjoying family and the St. Augustine area for nearly 4 weeks but it only seems like a few days have gone by. Evenings are already coming sooner in the day and we have only touched on a few of the many things we had hoped to be a part of before we moved on to our next planned destination.
It seems like we have barely gotten started here and already our departure is looming up in front of us. Well, that can be fixed and we have done so by extending our stay another month. Boy! Do I feel better! Just a little tweak in the plans and we are good, again. Love this lifestyle!
However, this does make me think a bit about what has gotten us to this point over so many years. A lot has certainly been about our own directed efforts to see this lifestyle realized but many things have slipped, skewed and bubbled up in front of our planning and have all had to become a part of making this happen.
I understand that there are laws of physics which say things like, you can't be in two different places at the same time and water flows downhill. But there are other laws which we all experience but no one ever explains. These include;
- The more fun you are having the less time you have left to enjoy it.
- When you are feeling poorly is when mechanical things will break.
- Wifi will be great as long as you don't really need it.
As one reader pointed out... I never got to the point of this blog.... senior moment or just tired, maybe, so I have reworked it a bit for clarity.
I feel that this is because we have kept moving towards it for the past 10 years despite all the "life junk" strewn in our path. We have been invested in its success all along the way so that now, we truly own it and relish each day in it. What we dreamed and worked for is now our life and we are blessed to be here.
