Back in 1998 when my parents decided to leave the bay area for a slower pace I couldn’t understand why. Obviously I’ve gotten older and now realize what she means. I know so many people have decided to leave the bay area for a slower pace and a better lifestyle. Driving into work this morning from Pleasanton all the way to San Francisco it became so clear to me why many folks decide to leave. At a certain point in your life you start to think what is best for me and my family. The difficult part about that is, the bay area is such a beautiful place and it’s so inclusive culturally and that is unique to the rest of the country. Not seeing other places aren’t diverse And culturally open to one another but, there is just something special about the bay area. All that to say, even though we live in the most beautiful place in the country would you ever leave for a better quality life hundreds of thousands of people already have. What are you willing to do for that quality of life?
