Downsizing

YES-me and Jason are downsizing in our residence-we are going to live in a small, quaint, and AWESOME town home in North Charleston, and I CAN'T wait!! This will be the first time that me and Jason have ever paid rent, and it's SO liberating. I know that sounds wierd..but back history on us..we are real estate investors, and I can proudly say that we have had uber success with it. Recently though, we have a lot of people that can't pay us..long story short. So, to redeem ourselves in this tough situation, we have moved from a million dollar house in downtown Charleston (that we actually renovated, from the 1800's!), to my parents house temporarily, and now to our lovely new town home. We actually just signed the lease and move in on Saturday! It's perfect for us, 1200 sqft, 3 bedrooms, open floor plan, working toilets, running water, AC..what more can you ask for?? For the first time in my life, I am seeing certain things as such blessings, because you know what? These little luxuries that we take for granted are in such need across the world, and it's hard for us to even fathom. I'm not saying I think about it all the time, but I am reflecting on that today, and I am going to embrace the beige builders carpet, the linoleum, and the ugly paint. It's all fabulous. And I'm not being sarcastic, by any means! I really mean it, we even have a pool within walking distance! Alana is STOKED about that, and I know Isabel will have a great time there as well. I'll have pics posted as soon as I can, if anyone wants to help on Saturday-let us know! Call Jason-because he needs guys for the big stuff! Thanks!! :)

It sounds lovely! Everything always boils down to your attitude - if you approach a situation with the right attitude, you'll always win! Good luck with the move!

That is so right about having the right attitude! It makes life so much more refreshing..sometimes life takes turns and it all leads in the right direction, even if you don't see it at the time. I feel like we're heading in the right direction :). I love the cheap rent too!
