I was taking a short cut from the hair salon to the dry cleaners when I came across a house that perfectly fits all my criteria. Except that the timing is all wrong. Or is it?
Yes, I have a lease and there is a penalty, but if I decide to move forward quickly, then the tax credit would more than offset that. And I even have a couple of sub-let options available.
But there is more to this than financial, obviously. There is Bick. And this house would feel like permanently shutting that door. I just need to talk myself out of:
thinking that I can foretell the future
that only one man or one house are perfect for me
that I am solely responsible for our relationship
thinking I have to make the perfect decision'
thinking I have control
feeling the need to "price" myself at a discount, rather than a premium
As my daughter told me this morning, "Mom, you've regretted most the decisions that you haven't made more than the ones you have." And she's right. It's been lack of faith and trust in myself that has hampered me for far too long.
So I've put in a call to recommended realtor and I'm scheduling an appointment to see the house. I've gotta know where this goes.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Don't undervalue yourself.
