WE HAVE A CONTRACT ON OUR HOME !!!!
While our home hasn't been on the market for months and months, or heaven forbid, years, it has been a rather stressful time for me since we put it on the market on Christmas Eve. But, today, we finally agreed on a price with a prospective buyer and have a contract on it. Now it's just for the bank to find value in it and the building and pest inspection. Then we are good to go !!!
Well - sort of - there have been a few hiccups with the place we are buying BUT, I had another win this morning when A agreed that even if the purchase of the place we want falls through, we will rent and be a cash buyer and just look for something else - win, win all around !
If you had told me years ago that I would be the one who was positive about a tree change and happy to let my home become someone else's home, I would have laughed at you. I would have said that you 'were smoking your socks' (as we say in our family). I can see just how much I have grown and changed my attitude about how I deal with issues that come up. I have, finally, realised that there is no point in worrying about the things that I have no control over. I have realised that worrying about the things that I cannot change is a waste of my energy.
Today I am thankful for the contract that we have on our home but more importantly, I am thankful for how I have grown and how my attitude has changed to allow me to enjoy life more fully instead of spending so much time worrying about the things I have no control over.
Have the best day !
