Why we quit our jobs, sold our house, and moved to a different city. - by Leroy Rollins
We wanted change.
We wanted to switch things up.
We wanted a new adventure.
In a world of conformity, comfort, and placing more value on things rather than happiness, we wanted out.
We were comfortable, safe.
We had bought a house, gotten good jobs, and were in a position that many deemed as “successful”. However, we found ourselves in a place of constantly asking why.
Why did we have all this stuff?
Why are we spending all this money?
Why are we sitting here wondering “what if”?
So we decided it was time for change.
A change in careers. We both quit our jobs, and made switches in our respective careers.
A change in homes. We downsized, sold our house and moved to an apartment. We got rid of/donated anything we didn’t need, and live in a beautiful home that’s everything we could need right now.
A change in location. We moved almost an hour away to Kingston, a city Kari and I have envied for a very long time.
We’re happy. We’re stimulated. We’re challenged.
This wasn’t on our radar at the beginning of the year, but as quickly as it was a thought it became reality.
If you feel stuck, bored, or are simply wanting some change, don’t wait. Make it happen. Jump on every opportunity you get, I promise you’ll be glad you did. ...
