Did you know with home purchasing and even with life
Everyone's Choices Cost Them Something?
It's true, there are tradeoffs to what you pick. Buy one house and you are not buying another. You are living in THAT 5 mile radius with that school district saddled with that house payment for years to come. I tell people focus FIRST on location and then the house style and floorplan and neighborhood cause WHERE you live is going to stick with you awhile.
Also think of all the life choices with job, lifestyle, relationships, interests that we make.
They ALL have a cost in tradeoffs with where we put our time and our money and the resultant happiness or turmoil and grief we get as a consequence of our choices. Life is all about making choices, perhaps trying a shoe on to see if it fits well, making mistakes of course along the way, but hopefully if we are smart, LEARNING OUR LESSONS, growing and moving forward to continued better days.
Think of choices as a key ring with many colorful and different sized and shaped keys on it. Like the buying the house and walking through that front door, MANY doors present themselves to us in life to open or steer clear away from or maybe open and stand in the entryway for awhile before either backing away and saying NO this door is not for me or saying YES, this is the dream choice or dream house I have been looking for all along and boldly moving ahead.
Don't be afraid of making choices but do learn from those past choices that did not work out and what you learned, perhaps at a dear cost of your time, happiness, money, energy, or alternative choice you DIDN'T take, and don't go down THAT wrong path again. It takes courage to step through new doors, but it is what we are called to do in this life, hoping each day to get a little bit closer to 'getting it right.'
