Okay so this may be a radical interpretation of the word Drishti but I’m going to go with it anyway. Drishti a Sanskrit word meaning focused gaze is a means for developing concentrated intention. I am using it to describe how I may have found something to focus on and that is helping me try to balance my crazy life. I am here….what steps do I have to take to get there? Does that make sense?
I have been thinking pretty hard about buying a house versus renting one. While renting feels like throwing away money, there is still a level of freedom there. A house is great if you know how to fix things or have the money to pay someone to fix things. The old house had a lot of problems. My mother even said before she died “it would be cheaper to tear this house down and start over than trying to fix everything that is wrong with it.” She was right. Do I really want to go there again? I’m not so sure?
A rental will become available in the next couple of months and I am getting first dibs. I have only seen a picture of the outside and a sketch of the layout on the inside. It has a front porch that I love and it has a decent amount of property which translates to more privacy. I could sit outside and drink my coffee with the birds again….in peace. All of my outside seating was stolen as I’m sure you remember so I will cross that bridge when I get to it. It’s $100.00 cheaper a month and there is no city tax or school tax. I would be paying less and my paycheck would be bigger that’s a huge plus. The old house was 816 square ft. The current house is 1000, the new rental is 1033……. so pretty much the same.
What does this have to do with focus? Well….I was doing really well with the cleaning and purging after KB helped me clean the basement. I finished the kitchen, I am almost all the way done in my bedroom….I stopped with only one dresser left to paint? I made it through the shelf in the walk through room and stopped….all the way stopped. I am hoping that this new possibility will get me back on track…
I am having a little pop up at my favorite coffee shop Saturday morning. I am only bringing the teacups and maybe some jewelry but that’s it. I decided that before I knew it was going to rain. I’ve sold two already….I hope I sell the rest.
I have a future experiment on the way….https://www.lushusa.com/story?cid=article_benefits-of-henna I have never used henna before and there is an instructional video involved so yes, this is definitely an experiment. Maybe my hairdresser having a baby and overpaying for a less than perfect dye job with a new girl was a good thing?
Thankfully tomorrow is Friday, I have big purging plans for the weekend. Wish me motivation……Zia
