If things go as planned we have less than a year left of living in our current home. Instead of making a mad dash a month before putting our house on the market to make it sale ready I’ve started making some changes now that I think will help sell our house, which also gives me some time to enjoy the work a bit instead of saying I wished I would’ve of done this months/years ago.
It also helps me stay focused on living in the moment, which I seem terribly bad at.
(Reminding myself to stop and smell the flowers on my ever changing coffee table)
I’m not going to lie I stopped doing things on the house a few months ago when we made the decision to move (and downsize) and I went into a funk because of it. There’s no doubt about it my house is my hobby and making our home look good and function better for us brings me joy. Some people play sports, some paint, some read…
I work on my house, always have, let’s face it always will.
(We brought our baby home to this house)
I decided although its fun to think about the next house I’m not going to put all my energy to it. This is going to be a big year for our family (my daughter will graduate high school, wtf!?) and we will move away from good friends and family to a whole other state (where we’ll know no one) so I need to slow down and enjoy the now and appreciate how good our house was to us.
(My daughter’s high school years were in this house)
So I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m going to make it a point to live more in the now and not the future because let’s face it, 5 years ago I was dreaming about my current house.
Please tell me I’m not the only one guilty of living in the future?
