Living ‘My’ Dream

Friday I gave my 2-week notice.

For the first time in my adult life, my career is no longer my highest priority. I have been mentally preparing myself for the challenges ahead for years.

We have reached our FI number, but that, it seems, was the easy part!

We are letting go of our careers, selling all of our possessions (except a condo in California which we’ll be renting out) and moving to Valencia, Spain.

Freedom Feels Fantastic!

No longer do I need to worry about a boss, deadlines, meetings, commutes or how fast I get back to a customer.

My new focus will be…

  • Slow, simple living
  • Studying Spanish
  • Integrating with a new culture
  • Making meaningful connections with people
  • And finding new ways to contribute to society

It will be a whole new world. The transition will take time. I hold no fantasies about this being easy. It will be an adventure. It will, at times, be difficult and frustrating. I may, at some point even feel like giving up. Have I bitten off more than I can chew?

I do have doubts.

But I know that this is what I need to do right now in my life…

I am living MY dream.

This amazing city is one of the oldest on the Adriatic coast with a history that goes back 2,500 years! This gleaming tiny city huddled against crystal clear waters contains churches that date to the 7th and 9th centuries A.D.
