Today is my 16th day.
It's been a whirlwind of emotions recently as we learned a few weeks ago that out request for a Loan Modification was NOT approved. We have until the end of this month to vacate our home. During this ordeal, I have experienced emotions I didn't think were possible. I am leaning to find the blessings in all of this and some days seem easier than others. Actually, some hours seems easier than others. I am being prompted to say goodbye to the life I once knew. A life that had all the material things attached to it that falsely made me the person I thought I was. I'm learning that my strength does not come from the house I live in or the car I drive. A Tough lesson that has rocked me to the core.
Some say..."At least you still have your income" or "others have it much worse."
While this is so true...my truth is ...It's still a challenge to get through but I know I'll be stronger for it.
I used the word prompted earlier because I had a choice. I had a choice to do whatever it took to hang on to a house that was considered "upside down" in value or walk away from it and have the opportunity to start over and smarter. We decided on the latter. This decision will free me do more volunteer work and to be more of service to others without the guilt of feeling like I "have to" gererate an income doing my home-based business. My husband's income will support the family and allow us to begin to save again.
The Blessings in Foreclosure will be many.
Today my gift is to myself and others in my position.
To myself because I had to let go of some faulty thinking and beliefs
To others because I hope to be a source of support if this is or will be happening to you.
LIFE LESSON......BIGGER ISN'T ALWAYS BETTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Blessings to all
