I wrote part of a blog today… and I deleted it just now. It was a whiny, complainy blog, and it wasn’t something I want to release into the world. We have enough of that.
Fact is, it has been 7 months since I last posted a blog, and it has been 5 months since we put our house up for sale. I expected it would have sold by now, but it hasn’t. It is very disappointing, but I’m going to have to find a way to deal with it, other than complaining.
I have a lot of things to write to you about, I just haven’t been able to push myself to writing. That’s what this blogpost if for. I just have to get myself started.
The post I wrote before, was about our house not selling. I was going on and on about it, and I’m glad I stopped myself. Many people are without a home, without food, without money, without family. I have all these things and more. While, yes, I am allowed to feel sad about our situation. I do have to put things into perspective. I am lucky to have a house to sell. A house I’m selling because it is too big for us. Wow, talk about first world problems!
I have been feeling sorry for myself for a very long time. I was feeling very lost and helpless. I am however, not lost at all. I know exactly where I am, and I know exactly where I’m going. And I am definitely not helpless. I am in charge of my life, not a victim.
I’m deciding, here and now, that I will find my motivation, rediscover my optimism and that I will make the best of things.
Life’s pretty good, and I intent to make the most of it.
Expect more blogposts, I really will do my very best to keep writing. Because I have a lot to share with you.
