Because It Was Time
Our kids are growing up. One of them has already left the nest. Life is short – and getting shorter every day.
We decided that NOW was the time to leave it all behind. Sell everything and hit the road. Sure, we wanted a larger RV. We wanted more money in the bank. Maybe that was just more of the typical American Dream creeping in. Got to have security, got to have a fat bank roll. Why? Was that our choice, or the choice that “society” puts on us? We should wait until it was all a little firmer, all a little easier, right?
But why should we wait? If we waited around for the perfect time, there’s a damned good chance that time would never arrive. If we waited for the green light from our finances or our friends or society-in-general, we’d probably find ourselves 25 years from now, sitting in a rocker at a retirement home, still waiting. There was NEVER going to be the perfect time – except NOW.
So, we left. It was hard. Sure, we could have planned better or prepared more. But – it was time.
