Hubby has been stressing his job situation recently. Actually, it's less of a situation than he imagines it to be, but telling him that does absolutely no good. He makes a very decent wage, is charged with creating something that he was fully aware of before he started, and given tools needed to get it going. But still, he stresses. And truth be told, there is a lot of pressure to get er done. Every time I hear him express it in the negative, I try to get him to rephrase it.
But its a habit thats hard for him to break.
To counteract that, I told him that our intention for the New Year had to be something we place all that excess energy into. And Highlands seems like the right place. The list of things we need to do out there is long, and some of it is pricey, but we have to start somewhere. I feel like during the long hot months all we did was manage not to die of sunstroke up there. But winter is here. The trash is easily seen. Time to get that trailer we talked about, look into a tractor, get some big trash piled up, the weeds mowed, a dumpster planned, and more plans made.
This past weekend, we staked off where we thought the house should go, and it was an eye opener. I looked back towards the space we had sectioned off and imagined my new house sitting there, with its windows and big porch all along the front, its oak trees shading it, its metal roof, and its natural stone siding. I want to get to work. I think that moving our dream a little further out of the backs of our minds and into the light will help us intentionally set it in motion.
So that's my New Year's resolution!
Time to get it going.
