As some may, or may not know, my family lives in Maui, HI. I've been going out there at least once a year to visit and enjoy Paradise. In August of 2009, I came out to assist my Aunt and Uncle with their real estate brokerage. I've been in the real estate industry for almost a decade now... and have been keeping myself up to date on the newest technologies, etc. It turns out that I've been a great help and asset to their business and they would love to have me full time.... in Maui. Sounds like a dream come true, eh?
Oh, how I wish I could get past this mental hurdle of "Island Fever". My aunt says she hears the "Island Fever" dilemma quite often. So often that it sparked her to write a blog post about it. After reading her post, I realized that my fear isn't that I'm unable to get off the island.... it's that my friends and loved ones won't be able to get on the island as much as I'd like them to. Being single woman with no children - the love and support I need come from my friends and family. And seeing them on a daily basis is just too impoprtant to me.
Please take the time to read this GREAT post from my aunt. It REALLY does describe life on the island... in Paradise... PERFECTLY. :)
