So, to give a small insight into my personal life – currently, we are looking to purchase a house. A house that we want to make into our home, and where we will live for at least the next 20 years. We put an offer on a house yesterday, but this time, it feels different.
There is a sense of calm. There is a sense of surety, even though the offer has not been accepted, and we have no way of knowing if we will get it. We are not frantic, as we were for the last house. We have put in our offer, and are sitting back, waiting… The wait is not agonizing. There is a sense of patience. There is a sense that it is okay to figure out the room layouts, and to look on Pinterest, and to gather ideas…
Under logic, this makes ZERO sense. We should be freaking out – this is the largest purchase of our lives. What if there is something we didn’t see that is wrong with the house, what if we hate our neighbors, what if… But that frantic mindset is not there. There is just the wash of calm, and a sense that everything is going to work out as it should. Everything is going to be okay.
In a way, I have the feeling that this sense of calm means that this home is meant to be – that if anything, we are on the right path, and everything will work out. Whether or not that is true is meant to be seen, but I know no matter the outcome, everything will be okay.
I read The Game of Life and How to Play It, and have been asking for the perfect, happy home that is ours “by divine right.” Perhaps this serenity is a sign that is happening. We shall see!
