A cloudy gem
In life we often set goals for ourselves over the course of our lifetime. What we want to do for a career. We plan our worldly travels choosing foreign places we want to visit. Where we want to live out our days choosing our lifestyles. Deciding if we want to marry and have a family of our own or not. We make choices to achieve these goals by calculating how they will benefit us in reaching our long term goals.
Your goals are your gems. They may not hold any monetary value but they have sentimental value to you. Which in any case determines its worth something. I was thinking about my life and the situation we are presently in. However this time I was thinking about the we have that I didn't think about as what I wanted. What I mean is I was thinking about how our situation was not as planned and certainly not ideal in any way when it first arose.
However now that I think about the situation it is exactly what we wanted. We wanted to be in our own place which we owned and we could do what ever we wanted without anyone saying no to us. We wanted something that was within walking distance of a good school close to grocery store and a few other things like that. We wanted to start completely new and fresh.
Funny how that was somehow unclear to me when we had to make the decision. We lost sight of our gem because we were so fixated on it being exactly to our desired specification. Yes its not already close to what we want it to look like . There is lots of work that needs to be done but this will allow us to make it exactly how we want it. It isn't a stationary home with a foundation but it is a stepping stone in the direction we want to go.
I wanted something that would make working easier for me and this does in many ways. I wanted a break to be able to catch up on things and this situation offers that to me. To think that I thought it was not wanting but turns out that it was the whole time even if we didn't know it at that time.
Now to start off a new life. I am really looking forward to the challenges because I know that in the end the whole thing will be worth it. This will change our lives in ways we hadn't imagined to be realized anytime soon. The image a great example of my post. You might want to see the sun shine and just because its not perfectly clear you don't realize that what you want is staring you right in the face.
