As I continue to gain strength and become well I’m faced with some decisions. When this all started in October I’d just started to really gain traction in my biz and 6 months of bed rest and fuzzy brain has brought that to a complete halt. I’ve burned through most of my savings on medical costs. I own a cozy amazing house on the outskirts of downtown Orlando which is older and in need of some work. I don’t really have time to rebuild the business, I need cash in the next few months.
The obvious action would be to find a job. My skills are diverse and with my resume and network it would be easy to jump back into corporate life and the pay would be high and come quickly. Given my health that stability and routine sounds responsible.
Thing is, it doesn’t feel right.
If I get a corporate job then I’m back to living a corporate lifestyle which I already know doesn’t work for me.
So I spent the past week or so getting really clear on my core values. What are my pillars, the things I’m so committed to that the rest of my life needs to revolve around them? As I did this work I realized that there’s no way I can let a thing, a house, dictate my lifestyle. So, rather than look for a job I decided to sell the house.
I reached out to an old friend who’s a realtor and next week The Sunshine Bungalow goes on the market!
Update: Within two weeks of listing my house I received an offer for the full list price requested a 30 day closing. 8 weeks after I decided to sell, and 6 weeks after listing it I am no longer a home owner. I’m free to design my life without the weight of caring for The Sunshine Bungalow involved. The best part? The new owner and I have become friends and he’s taking such great care of the space!
