Some thoughts following on from yesterday post about selling my house…
A friend of mine is always telling me not to say negative things, eventually you believe them and these spoken words can almost become a self-fulfilling prophesy.
Last night I went out to pick my son up from tennis, I’d like to move within walking distance of the tennis courts so I don’t have to play taxi service so often. It would be more convenient for us both.
But the thought that entered my head while I was driving was…
“By the time we move he’ll have his own driving license!”
I suddenly realised what I was thinking and decided to make a concerted effort to stop the negativity.
I’m going to stop saying IF we move and make sure I always say WHEN. At the moment the words I use are dependent on my mood and the more fed up I am the more I grudgingly say “if”.
My estate agent might have lost hope, at least he is not giving me very much at present, and today’s news is that we are officially in a double dip recession. The odds are highly stacked against me selling for the foreseeable future.
BUT I am going to keep plodding on getting “stuff” sorted, getting rid of clutter to make moving easier WHEN it happens!
I do have FAITH that God has a plan and I need to live like I believe it.
A while ago I wrote about grumpy old Eeyore and Winnie the Pooh. I had a copy of “Eeyore’s Little Book of Gloom” and “Pooh’s Little Book of Wisdom” but I wanted Tigger’s little book of bounce to complete the set.
Well a couple of weeks ago youngest son found a copy on the bookshelf – we had it all along!
To be honest most quotes make little sense out of context but here’s one that does.
“Can Tiggers swim?
“Of course they can. Tiggers can do everything.”
I think perhaps the time has come to be a Tigger and believe that everything is possible.
