I have been thinking a lot lately about living on the sunny side of life. The glass half full kind of thinking. And I have come up with a list of positives for this house turned trap situation we have found ourselves in. And although, just like Star Wars, there will always be a Dark Side, I need to keep rolling with the Light Side in order to stay sane.
So, in the unlikely? event that our house does not sell this year, here are some measurable positive outcomes for our family:
- As long as Mike has steady-ish work we will be paying off $800 per month in debt and that is like money in the bank for our trip.
- The boys will be that much older and will have a greater understanding of their place in the world, thus getting more and remembering more from our Worldschool Adventure.
- Summer and fall are my favorite seasons (along with Spring!) and I hope to get out there and enjoy them with my family. And all though in my books winter SUCKS maybe we can try some new winter-ish things this year and I will be persuaded to dislike winter a little bit less.
- I have been thinking a lot about experimenting more with a locavore diet, and now is the perfect time to dip our toes into that kind of challenge.
If I were to make a list of hypothetical reasons the list could go on for ever, but that’s not too shabby for concrete positives right?
And in the meantime, along with my usual long-term family travel related posts, I plan on blogging more about our adventures from the best place on earth…..British Columbia!
