Keep your face always toward the sunshine, and the shadows will fall behind you.
So, this month has been a little bit of a disappointment. We had our hearts set on a cute little house, and since it was a short sale, we waited quite a long time for the bank to move on it. Well, the bank moved on it all right--they foreclosed on the property last week. Needless to say, we're bummed. Everyone who knows about real estate will tell you this is a common occurrence, but that doesn't mean that our feelings aren't valid. Talk about a frustrating waste of time :(
With the cooler weather setting in, I think we are just going to take a break from looking for a home for a while. I am excited about saving even more money, and starting fresh in the Spring. I also refuse to be sad. There is a great house out there for us, I just know it!
I love the quote above. Isn't it a conscious decision to be happy? You have to turn your face to the sunshine. You have to get up in the morning, and DECIDE to have a good day. I'm actually proud of my ability to do this. I enjoy my life, I understand that bad things happen to good people, I live in the moment, and I look to the future for the good things to come.
Choose to be happy today.
