5 Good Reasons to Live in Florida

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word Florida? Is it the sun? The beach? Entertainment? Well, all those thoughts are much more than just thoughts.

Florida is actually one of the most perfect places for living, traveling, and working, and several studies have evaluated its aspects, such as the affordable cost of living, health care, social living standards, climate, etc. as massive pull factors to the Sunshine State.

Below are some more detailed reasons to live (or just visit) this beautiful state.

1. Its interesting facts:

  • Florida is the only state to have an “Embassy” in Washington, and it’s called Florida House.
  • Did you know that Florida has the longest coastline in the United States? Yes, its coastline is 1,350 miles or 2,170 km. Also, Florida is the only state in the United States that borders with the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean.
  • It is the only state that has 2 rivers with the same name; pretty fun isn’t it? There is a Withlacoochee River in Madison County and a Withlacoochee River in central Florida, but they have nothing in common except the name.
  • Florida is the only state in the nation whose Constitution is reviewed every 20 years. Yes, many states (and countries) should do the same.
  • Florida is the largest producer of citrus fruits in the USA and second in the world, with even the car license plates having little oranges painted on them.
  • Florida is one of seven states in the nation with no state income tax – good news for you and your pocket.

2. It is one of the best places to make real estate investments.

It seems that the land of sand has been considered as a real estate gold mine. As we know, there are many cities and states that are recovering from the recession (Florida was one of them), but the current picture and trend is positive and has a renewed interest in real estate investments.

Nowadays, there are many people moving to, and in and around Florida, buying and selling houses fast, and trying to make good investments and business there because the housing market is heating up; new homes in some specific areas are in high demand, and its prices and values are increasing.

3. There are many recreational activities and entertaining places.

In this state, sports fanatics, travelers, tourists, adventurers, and athletes are really happy because of the multiple events, activities, and entertaining places Florida has. There are many attractions for everybody’s likes and interests.

If you are planning to go there, or to buy a house and start a new life, you can be sure that there are many living and entertaining options to satisfy everybody; every taste and every budget.

4. You will feel welcome every time.

You will probably hear “Welcome to Florida, the sunshine State!” almost everywhere, and you will feel a good vibe instantly. Floridians are known to be sweet and welcoming people; they are used to the bombardment of tourists everywhere, and they have developed a patient and accommodating nature.

Floridians also know how to have fun, and maybe that’s because they have “the greatest and happiest place on earth” – Disney Theme Parks!

5. Delicious gastronomy.

You will find many gourmet restaurants, bars, coffee shops, etc. around Florida, and you can be sure that everything will be fresh and delicious. As I said, their fresh fruit comes straight from the orchards and seafood from well, the sea (never far away).

You will see many outdoor or beachfront restaurants and great places to relax a little bit, and feel like you are on a vacation every time.

5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Yourself

5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Yourself

When it comes to being yourself, there can be a lot of pressure from the outside world as it tries to influence who you are. Living in a society that is constantly developing, it’s important for you to always be yourself from the inside out. When you deeply know yourself and the boundaries that you have set, you are more likely to experience a fulfilling and rewarding life. Without knowing yourself and establishing those boundaries, you can easily be pushed around and end up on a dirt path.

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” – Matthew 7:13-14

You have the option of taking the path that is broad or taking the path that is narrow. You can either conform to what life wants you to be, or have the courage to remain true to yourself throughout the years. It’s definitely a challenge to have a strong sense of self when we are constantly getting distracted and being influenced by the media and society’s way of life. But if you want to reach your fullest potential in life, it all starts with being yourself.

Why should you always be yourself?

Because you will:

  1. Live in alignment with your values and beliefs. Being yourself is all about knowing what you believe in and the values that you live by. When you are not yourself, you will take on the values and beliefs of others. This is when you start conforming to other people’s expectations and way of thinking. When you know your values and why you do what you do, you will live according to your own values and beliefs.
  2. Establish your own identity. When you are able to have a solid foundation of being you, you are establishing your own sense of identity. No matter what happens in your life, you will always know who you are. There will be times where you may feel lost or distracted, but if you have your own identity you’ll be able to get back on the right path. Without establishing your own identity, you may easily conform and lose yourself.
  3. Build courage. It takes a great amount of courage when you decide to take the path that goes against the crowd. The reason why the majority of people take the broad path is because it’s easy. It’s easy to just follow the crowd. It’s more of a challenge when you stay true to yourself and establish your own identity. This challenge of always being yourself takes courage and inner strength. No matter what comes your way, you’ll know how to handle it.
  4. Establish boundaries. When you are always yourself, you know what your limits are and the boundaries that you have set for yourself. When people cross your boundaries, you will know. But if you don’t establish boundaries, people may very well walk all over you and take advantage of you. If you are always yourself and you establish boundaries, you are more likely to be aware when people start taking advantage of you. Create and establish your boundaries.
  5. Find focus and direction. When you are always yourself, you are more likely to have focus and direction in your life. Imagine someone who is constantly conforming to other people’s expectations. Do you think this person has focus and direction? I don’t think so. When you stay true to who you are, you are more likely to know the goals you want to accomplish and how to go about accomplishing them. You are able to stay focused and know which direction to take in order for you to accomplish your goals.

No matter what you experience in life, the only person that will always remain constant is you.
