Most of us are brought up thinking there is a big world out there, that as a young whipper snapper you are going to set that world on fire. You have lots to contribute and the issue is only where and when you move right? Your parents help in the push from the family nest and support you mentally and financially in the transition from the homestead you grew up in to the trek in the wild blue yonder. My advice for teenagers is to heed what their parents, teachers and community mentors tell them but to also factor in, when they settle down and have kids, where do they want to be to raise them. To me, family and children are the most important institution and a solemn, rewarding full time endeavor to help shape them for preparation for today, and tomorrow when we are long gone as a living guide. To me, Maine is a state that offers a variety of experiences and opportunities. And if home town community values are key to development in your opinion, you get plenty of that in Maine. The state offers this for folks contemplating Maine relocation here, testimonials of others that made the leap. I believe those of us that have lived here most or all of our lives are spoiled. Due to the lower population and lack of saturation of people in most of this big state, we start off with an advantage of space, elbow room, personal space. Our real estate price tags are much more attractive and affordabe due to being located up here in the right hand corner of the world nestled between New Brunswick and Quebec on the three sides and the Atlantic Ocean's rock bound coast to the east. Rolling fields, clean fish filed lakes, thousands of acres of nothing but worlds and wildlife and trails in some areas, and friendly people laboring hard to make their area a better place to live, work and play makes this the logical "home" for me and my family. No traffric, enjoying Maine's 4th lowest crime state status, lack of pollution and a speed of life that is sane...all with a four season beauty for a back drop. Maine is the way life should be.
