We are a family of five who have made some unusual choices. After a decade building a family, a home and business, we looked around and realized that we were busier than ever, but not really any happier. The kids were acting more entitled every day.
So, after years of talk and research, we put the house on the market, sold nearly every possession and bought a boat, to the amazement of our parents and friends.
If your choices define who you are becoming, then we are weird or worse, depending on your perspective. There’s also the chance that we’re wise, that breaking the mold and doing something you have always dreamed of is worth the cost. It’s a chance, not a certainty. Perhaps the only difference between bravery and stupidity lies in the outcome.
