The future

January 28th, 2018 at 07:05 am

Thinking about the future. It's scary but I don't want FEAR to win this battle. I'm 48 years old and I do want to live life under my own terms as much as possible. Next month, we begin our search for a home in another state. I told my husband that I refuse to settle for just any house. I am not looking for luxury; I just want a home that meets our needs and one we can be happy living in.

If by any chance our move is stalled or not possible, I decided that I will resign from my job sooner than later. I am grateful that it is a good paying job and that it has afforded us many financial opportunities, but I honestly have a really hard time going to work every day. My husband is supportive of my decision and he is willing to continue working until I find a good place to work. We will definitely have to tighten our belts but we are no strangers to making sacrifices and we have enough funds in savings to help us move forward. Until then, we will continue hoarding money.

On another note, Mom is back home. She left yesterday and when I talk to her on the phone she sounded so upbeat and happy. I am happy for her.

    I hear you about not being driven by fear. That's important. I'm glad you were able to have your mom come to stay, and also that she's happy to be home again!

    I'm glad your mom is in a good place, mentally speaking. I like your attitude about the house. I am so glad that for the most part, I purchased a house that is not overly big and that fits my needs pretty well. I only wish, really, that the yard was smaller and the driveway shorter.

    Almost all my life I have "settled" for stuff. I understand what you mean about moving forward with out fear and living life in your own terms. Hope you find a wonderful home.
