Juggling Dreams

A Journey to finding the perfect horse property

Some days it seems as if the dream is so far out of reach it will never happen. Other days it seems right there…. What makes me stay the course?

The process of searching for the right place seems out of reach right now. I’m in the process of selling a small piece of property to help with a down payment on the right place when we find it. The frustration of being in a lower income bracket the past couple of years even though we have great credit has made it nearly impossible to take action on any property that we find. Our current residence is nearly paid for but I’m not wanting to move twice which is what we’ll need to do in order to do a cash purchase.

Why am I taking all this on, especially with the life circumstances we’ve had over the past couple of years? I guess the realization that life is short and we need to enjoy and live the best life possible. I think our DNA requires it. So I’m not going to get discouraged. I’ll pick myself up, dust off the pity and start by being grateful for what I have. I really love the place we live now…its just time for a change. I’ve always wanted to live a little closer to trails and the mountains. So I’m keeping on track.

I’ve already shared the ideal property with you but when other places come along that have some of the elements I’m looking for I constantly have to reassess the goals. It’s definitely a journey. Super glad I have a great real estate agent in Allison Trimble who is patient with my dilemma. Time to start living with an abundance mentality rather than thinking I’ll never have enough.

Thanks for joining me on this journey. It may be a while!

Warmly,

Karen
