I had just spent two years setting up a 1/2 acre private home in a gated community to grow my garden and do my crafts. Just as I was all set up (shop built, garden put in, etc.) the governing board started making all kinds of new rules and covenants. They let the spikes at the gate break down and ruin my tires.

On July 10 of this year I decided that I didn't need someone ruling my life like that - it's almost as bad as thieves but not quite. By July 20 the for sale sign went up and I found my dream property (through the internet). By August 1 I had a buyer and by Sept 10 I was moved into my 4.5 acre farm. I couldn't be happier. It was something I had even given up on attaining.

The only regret I have is that I did not do this two years ago! It was painful at first to leave the "known", but I have to recommend taking that leap and doing it right away!
