I did it! My #1 thing I want to do is "live at the beach," and today I put a deposit and signed the lease on a cute little cottage on the beach. I move in August 1.
This is definitely one of those things I'd never have done if I didn't have it on my life list. I had just written my "top 5" maybe three weeks ago. I'd surprised myself with my desire to live at the beach - but as soon as I wrote it, I knew it was true.
Amazingly, days later, I passed a sign for a beach cottage up for rent... not beyond my price range (and believe me, my price range is not usually in beach house territory)... and I went on a whim to see it.
In a matter of days, I'll be living there.
Well, I guess I check THAT off the life list.
