New Adventures, Ahoy!

Have you ever gotten to a point in life where you have so many aspirations, so many plans for yourself that your current situation just aren’t fulfilling? Where in order to do what you really want, sacrifices have to be made whether they be financial, or by thinking outside the box. That’s me, and my family right now. We had an apartment fire in January and it’s been a struggle getting back on our feet ever since. We’ve been over paying, and staying in a hotel for five months and it’s been a struggle that’s taken a toll on all of us. So…we all decided to think outside the box and move somewhere we wouldn’t normally think of moving. Honestly? I’m excited! It’s a beautiful house on the beach and the rent is what we were looking for – we’ll be able to save while we’re there, while simultaneously save money and build our businesses – which I plan to do! I’m really anxious to get there and start working on all of my crafting, my internet businesses, and overall build our brand as a family. I’m holding out on where the location will be for now, because I have plans to vlog about the experience so I have a little journal chronicling the journey.

I have so many things I want to do there I have to write it down haha. Like, I feel like the opportunities are endless, just moving to this new area and all we have to do is be creative and push forward. It’s going to be such a fun adventure living in an area I never have before!

Things I plan to do:
Take advantage of living so close to the beach – actually walk (gasp) and go out more.
Figure out the terrain – get my Mom to show me around, then shadow me so I don’t feel so nervous about going around the general area. A fear I always have I have never fought through.
At least try some crafts I have wanted to do – sewing, cooking/baking, maybe soap or lotion making? Seems so scattered but I need to get all of this out of my system!
Start recording again W00T!! I’ll have my own room, and not only that, but I’ll have a room that does not house the only bathroom, so I’ll have full on privacy when I want to record lines and songs and aaaah I’ll have my own solitary recording space again EEE!
Just soak in the atmosphere – there’s horseback riding nearby I really, really want to do (I used to ride as a kid and stopped, have always wanted to pick it up again)

Aaaand I think that’s it…for now XD we’ll see when I actually get there. But yeah couldn’t be more excited for this week to be over, and for us to be in our new place!

New adventures, ahoy!
