Life List Day 127 - Sign the Lease on a Beach House

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.

OMG!!! I am so happy for you! Woo Hoo! I live in a California coastal town and there are some days that I feel like giving up and movin' because of the astronomical cost of living....but then I look at the views around me and say "It's sooo worth it!"

Congratulations Jill on the new house! From someone who used to live at the beach, enjoy each and every sunrise and sunset. When's the house warming party? :)

This sounds like a story from the book "Write It Down, Make It Happen" Very Inspiring.

congratulations! The power of the spoken/written word is pretty intense. I'm so glad it worked for you. I just might have to create a Top 5 list for myself.
