Today I got on a plane and left weather that looks like the above picture and view for cold and rainy weather and no ocean in sight. Believe me, I am still asking myself why.

I live in Maryland but my heart is in Miami. Everytime I get on a plane and leave Miami, I feel like something is trying to tether me in place. I feel like it is my home.

I wonder how many of us live in one city but our heart belongs to another place. It is like you have one foot in each location. People because of  their circumstances often end up living somewhere they hadn’t planned on living. Sometimes they grow up somewhere and yearn to break free and move somewhere else. If you haven’t experienced this then you are lucky. It can be quite heartbreaking.

The truth is that you really can live where you desire. Nothing is impossible. If you don’t like your circumstances and your zip code, then change it. It is easier than you think. I spent years trying to decide whether I should stay or go. The indecision was exhausting. It wasn’t until I finally made a choice that the weight was lifted off of my shoulders.

My advice is make a choice and run with it. Life is meant to be enjoyed. If your zip code is not making you happy then move. You can’t live with one foot in two cities for too long. It’s too tiring.
