Live A Life You Don’t Need A Vacation From on St. Croix

image1I recently came across a quote, to strive to live a life you don’t need a vacation from. Especially now while the new year is fresh and full of possibility for improvement, take a moment to think about if you are happy with where you live.

Do you live there because that’s where …
– You were born?
– Your relatives live?
– Your company is based?
– You want to be?

For the vast majority of people, the decision of where they reside has been made for them. Either by a family member in a previous generation or their boss.

Now think about the places you take your two weeks off every year. Is it to the Caribbean? On a cruise ship? At an all-inclusive resort in Mexico?

There are so many factors that drive people to living in the U.S. Virgin Islands, from the year-round gorgeous weather, to the unplugged feeling of island life. All beaches on St. Croix are public, so you can go every day of the year for free if your heart desires.

Is the place you live fostering the pursuit of your passions? Whether it’s to golf, sail, swim, kite-board, stand-up paddle board, paint, photograph or something else, St. Croix has a niche group in which you can grow. When you’re not working for a company that expects more than 40 hours of work a week and you’re not constantly tempted by Starbucks and other frivolous expenditures, you can spend more time and money on the things you really want.

In 2016 make sure you’re not passively living where you think you are supposed to, or just in your comfort zone. You can make your own decision with your brain and let your two feet lead you (thanks Dr. Seuss).
Another quote I recently came across from Robin Sharma said not to live the same year 75 times in a row and call that a life. What are you doing differently this new year? As I was boxing up my Christmas decorations, I considered if I even want my house to look exactly the same every holiday season or not, because I certainly don’t want my life to.
