Gratitude From Simple Maine Living
The “keep it simple stupid” kiss attitude, approach to life fits like a glove in Maine.
Because kids raised in a rural, not flush with cash state like Maine are taught to be resourceful growing up. Not spoiled, loaded down or cluttered with material store bought items. But instead surrounded by folks who love, nurture them with the basics low down relayed on just how the world runs.
Becoming highly creative in making what you have work to fit a need.
Not whining, lamenting about what you don’t possess. And accepting this is as good as it gets. And it is up to me to improve whatever storm, puzzling situation in life you find yourself in. To make the most of things with a positive responsible approach, viewpoint. Not blaming others for the way you wished things were going when you find yourself bogged down, bewildered.
You become more reliant on your own skill set in Maine. There is a lot more to a person who gets in the habit of digging deep within themselves to find what the situation calls for instead of just the reflex of always turning their head around the room. To see who can provide, fill the need for them. Mainers are do it yourselvers.Not spoiled, taking ownership of their role in the way out of the puzzle maze life challenge.
Add to this simpler spirit the four season outdoor natural beauty of Maine that is a state unspoiled by man, or development and a winning combination is created. The pefect setting to enjoy life. Not just blindly racing through it frantically full of worry or anger or frustration.
The way of life in Maine is healthier too because of low cost real estate property listings. When you are not saddled with debt, concern about decades upon decades of debt service on an installment bank loan, you can breathe easier. Sleep better. And enjoy life more. The average price of a residential house in northern Maine is $71,000.
The same home in southern Maine needs another $100,000 tacked on to the mortgage for sale at $171,000.
More expensive means more complicated. More hub bub, moving and shaking strain to make extra money chasing the dollar. Collecting dead presidents. That come in and out like the ebb and flow of the ocean. But don’t stick around long enough to accumulate. To create a nice layer nest egg of savings to insulate from a wolf knocking at life’s door.
If you live where the hustle bustle, lack of personal space makes you feel like someone is always in your face, consider another option.
Maine, the way life should be.
Where less folks, better spacing means you don’t have to apoligize for stepping on anyone’s toes. You don’t have to spend all that time, energy, emotion in avoiding running in to anyone on the roads or in your clustered neighborhood of folks all around you.
