. . . but my finances aren’t. That is the trouble, is that I am ready for the next adventure, the next phase of my life.
Yet the fact remains that I have not built up enough savings in order to go do that. I refuse (not that I would qualify) to get a loan or other mortgage.
If I did get a loan or mortgage, then I would have to pay that back, which means getting a job or pressure to somehow generate income immediately.
The whole point of homesteading would be to provide a break from the debt-slavery that is the regular work-a-day world.
(Don’t think you’re a Debt-Slave? Just imagine how far you would get if you stopped working. So, do you really have a choice but to work and pay your bills and debts? That would make you a . . . )
Anyways, I must understand and accept that patience is once again required, as nothing, no changes in my life, ever happen quickly (other than the bad ones).
This path is a slow, plodding progress towards my goals, not a fast, sprint.
This is the true test of my lifestyle, enduring the almost glacial pace of change. Yet change is happening, and things are progressing, just not as fast as I would like.
I will survive, I will thrive and I will begin my Homesteading Process . . . just not for a few years yet.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
