Yup, that’s what they did. Recent friends of ours lived in Washington state for years but with frequent trips back and forth to Maui and Oahu their love for the islands grew stronger. Each trip solidified the need to be a more peaceful, warm environment. And why not!? Don’t we all want to be? Well there is a special reason for it. You see, my friend has Lupus and with dangerous blood clots he may not have long to live. He’s only in his late 40s but with the knowledge that 10-30% of patients die in the first year of being diagnosed with the complication DVT he said that waiting was not in his mind set. Why wait?
Why wait to live the life you want to live? What are we waiting for? A death sentence before we really start doing what we want to do in this life?
This is why he moved just last week to Hawaii. After his last trip with his beloved girlfriend he said that’s it, next time, it’s a one way ticket. And two days ago that’s just what he did. Threw caution to the wind and moved.
How do you do it?
You simply minimize. Yes, it can be spending moving here if you want to bring everything but this is the freedom we have; sell what doesn’t matter; donate it, heck, give it away and then only take the necessities. In my friends case, this was his Harley. Was it a hard decision for him? Nope. Because he had nothing to regret, nothing to leave behind and everything to live for by doing his dream. He is settling in quite nicely in paradise.
Ever thought you couldn’t move here because of this or that? Yeah, so do a lot of people. Will you be the one that drops everything and moves because you’ve always wanted to and why wait? When you’re ready, and maybe even before you’re a little ready, Hawaii Realty Pro will be there to help you find the right little piece of paradise for you. Come on.. Hawaii is calling.
