I can’t believe this adventure is going to begin in just six days! I’m excited and nervous at the same time. I think I’ve packed everything in a slow and methodical way to ensure I have what I need. There’s a lot to consider when moving 10 hours away.
When my daughter, Staci, invited me to vacation with her and Dale a couple of years ago, I had no idea a spark would be lit, after all, I never thought I liked Florida! After I returned home from that week, I couldn’t forget the beautiful southwestern Florida skies and the laidback lifestyle everyone seemed to be enjoying. I made a couple more trips since then with family and friends , each trip learning more and more. I am going to ultimately go on this adventure for the life experience and as an experiment.
I have been in a battle with depression for several years now. I think it just slowly began to spiral out of control in 2017 when I lost my sweet daddy. My adventure to Florida will also be my experiment to see if the change in geography will help me. We shall see what is in store.
I was telling my mom what I was planning and she said I got my adventurous spirit from my dad. He had even worked in Florida years ago for a time. I had never known that before. I wish I knew if it was in the same area I’m adventuring to.
The life experience is for gathering information! I want to get a job and learn what it’s like to be a local there, not a tourist. I want to feel the hum drum days along with the glorious ones. I will be interested to see what it’s like day in and day out. 😀 I look forward to seeing what the Lord leads me to . My sweet d.h. will then decide if we should buy a lot or house so we can be snowbirds when he retires.🏝
