I love this graphic from Danielle LaPorte, better yet, I just love all things Danielle LaPorte, she’s so inspiring and every morning when I read her daily Truthbombs, I leave the house happier. This graphic reminds me that sitting in the house becoming a recluse is not the key to achieving my dreams and goals, I need to get out there and be an active participant in life.
It further solidifies my recent decision to move out and buy/rent a place of my own. Sometimes living with family can be more toxic than helpful, and in my case, it’s turned toxic. If you read my last post, you’ll know that I’ve been speaking with a real estate agent and a few friends; it was the kick in the pants I needed to come to the realization(yet again), that where I am is not working and I need to find my life. I enjoyed the chat I had with my friend Richard in particular, he made me see that no matter what choice you make, it is never a bad one, you can always find ways to turn things around. I was worried that if I bought a place of my own and in Toronto, that I may not like it and then what? I’m financially strapped to a place I don’t like. However, I’m much more open now than ever to taking risks in life and with my money…the answer seemed simple…you rent it and make some money or sell it. Either way, it’s a positive outcome. What are you waiting for was the overall message. So I’m scrounging, scrounging for the money to pay the fees and down payment. It’ll happen I know it will.
Life sends you messages and this month I’ve had many flashing billboard types of messages, so I’m off to enjoy this Canada Day weekend and take the next 90 days to get my finances even more ship-shape than they are.
