  1. I HAVE been second-guessing myself, and this decision to move to Florida! I know what I want and I know I can do it, I just get overwhelmed by all the details; like, do I drive a moving truck or use pods, how do I find a dentist, or vet, or will I be able to drive on I-4 safely? It’s like you’re reading my mind Amy!


  2. So true! We four yrs till we move to FL. Last visit we were there we were looking homes by Dr. Philips. Beautiful area and we can’t wait! Four yrs can’t come soon enough. We hardly second guess because I’m the type that hates regret. So I do what I’m thinking now and I think if I regret I’ll regret it later. I have yet to regret what I chose. The only thing that worries me are the spiders, snakes and gators there. Have you seen much, Amy?


  3. Just as a general life rule, I’ve come to realize that we can’t let the fact that things could go wrong paralyze us and prevent us from moving forward. Walt Disney didn’t do that, for one pertinent example. Did he fail? Sure he did — he wasn’t always right in every choice he made, but he instinctively knew that a creative person who never fails is one who isn’t taking enough risks. Of course, it makes sense to take any reasonable steps to minimize risk whenever we can, but we’ll never eliminate it. Once you’ve assessed the risks and planned carefully, “keep moving forward.”


  4. Amy,
    This blog post was like a hug for my soul. My husband and I will be joining you as Orlando residents in a little less than 2 months. For some reason, this past week it has become very real and very scary. Reading this post has reminded me that it’s going to be scary, but you’ve got to push through that fear. Thanks for always being an inspiration! Hope to see you in the parks!


  5. I just came across your blog today and am very glad that I did. My husband and I just got told last week that he got a promotion and it was in Florida (we live in Colorado). We have never really thought of leaving Colorado have great friends and family is here as well. Then we got hit with this offer that has to be honest, rocked our world. We aren’t really movers and shakers and live a rather boring comfortable like and are scared of changing that. I do have a desire of the unknown, and what it would be like to get up and go. But, then I think about what it would do to our kids and would I find friends there like we have here. We both aren’t that outgoing so it wouldn’t be as easy for us. We do pray but I don’t feel like I am being led either way. One day I am so excited and ready to go try it and the next scared and sad. It is so hard to know what is right and if we are giving up on an amazing experience, or if we stay where we are comfortable. We have a choice to stay or go and they will pay for everything if we go, relocation costs, travel, everything. Just a little lost right now on what is right.
