Last weekend I was somewhat stressing, nothing new there for me!!! I had seen our buyer pass by the house several times, we live in a cul de sac so it not really passing by! Stressing thinking he was having second thoughts, I confess mild hatred crept in a little, not like me at all!
A call to my estate agent on Monday who is really lovely but when I told her, her voice dropped a little mirroring what I was feeling. I sobbed to twitter, and got some brow soothing comments. I stressed and sweated for an hour then the phone rang, it seemed good news but I was not partying yet as after all it was an email from a solicitor to ours that could have been drafted on the Friday.
So more waiting, feeling only slightly less stressed then hours and hours later which seemed like day’s the phone rang. Our buyers wanted to exchange that day the dates were more flexible and we will be homeless only for one week, which equals a weeks holiday!
In the afternoon we exchanged, I was on my own so only could celebrate with a tweet and a Facebook message!!! The ‘yays’ and ‘congratulations’ came in as lovely replies which made me feel well good! You realise with social media that there is a whole lots of lovely people out there, I love that!
I know it is only a house sold or well just exchanged we don’t move out until the 23rd August but for me, us it is a move forward. It is not just a house sell it is a change that we need.
As my best friend said to me when we met up for coffee and I said I am hoping it is the change we do need she said wisely ‘Keep looking forward and you will go forward’.
It is true, I have spent a lot of my life looking back. But you can not change the time behind you but you can shape your future from what you have learned.
That is what I intend to do x
