Letting Fear Rule My Life

For the longest time, I have been letting fear rule my life. It has ruled every single aspect it could of my life. From personal to professional. From marriage to parenting. When I say every single aspect, I mean EVERY. SINGLE. ASPECT. of my life. Fear has prevented me from being who I really want to be.

Today, I’m letting fear go. I need it to stop ruling my life because it is ruining my life. There is no more hiding, it is my time to shine. Today is the day I start living. Tomorrow is the day I start sharing my real life with the world. Tomorrow is Vlog day 1 (well technically today is day 1).

I don’t even know why I have let fear rule my life for so many years. I’ve never been one to let other’s opinions of me take that much of a hold on me to where I cannot push forward to pursue what I love in my life.

To be honest, I know that tomorrow I’m going to be fearful when I upload my first daily vlog because I know that there will be someone that will have something negative to say about how I do things with my family and my children. But I won’t let that fear stop me from uploading a video. I’m going to let that fear push me to do greater things with my talents, share my life with my friends, family, and the world.

Please bear with me as things on not only my blog but my vlog (YouTube Channel) change over the course of the next few days, weeks or even months as I get more confident in my ability to be in front of the camera, as my editing and vlogging skills grow. Be sure to subscribe to our channel to see all our new videos.

Things will change and I will grow. I just hope that others join me on this journey and see the value in our family that I see.

Moving Forward & Letting Go

This post is going to be a little personal today. Today we’re moving forward & letting go.
We’re headed on to the next step in our loan process. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to use a VA Mortgage loan, it’s not always an easy, quick, or pleasant process. The VA is 30-45 days behind on all their stuff. They’re overworked and understaffed, so it is taking a little bit of time to get to everyone’s requests and paperwork. So we’re right on track to close when we had originally planned! YES!

Right now our realtor has hooked us up with a great Home Inspector who can do the entire thing. Pest Inspection, Termite Inspection, etc. So we’re scheduling him to go out to the house as soon as possible. Then we have to get a VA Home Inspector to come out to the house to do the appraisal process. Then once all the paperwork is in our file, we can go to closing!!!! We’re so close! Just gotta make sure that everything with our actual home inspection goes to plan. Keeping our fingers crossed that there are no structural damages or anything that would cause us to back out of our contract.

The Coupon Clippers

While this house gets us into our own home, it is not in anyway shape or form our dream home. We’re going to pay off this home as quickly as we can so we can use the property as rental income in the future and have a home built for ourselves. This is our starter home! Being that we can realistically pay the home off within 10 years (we’re getting a really great deal), we know that we’re not stuck with this home for longer than we want to be in it!

So now that our house process is moving forward, we can start letting go. Letting go of things from our past. We’re going to downsize our possessions and make sure our home is only full of things that bring us happiness and joy. There’s no point in having things in our new home that drag us down. So out with the old and in with the new. Obviously, this will take time.

I’m really looking forward to being less scatterbrained all the time. I always felt more on top of my game, when we lived in Virginia. My brain just functioned so much better in my own home, even though I had a million and one different things that needed to be done every single day. We’re really ready to get back to our normal life with each other. We have a lot of time away from each other and Kevin’s been living in a hotel pretty much since he started this job in November. Granted, Kevin will still have to travel for his job, but 50% of the time he will be home at night with his family where he belongs!

I’m so ready for our lives to become normal again. I’m so ready to be able to catch up with old friends and actually be able to host holidays and parties. Plus once we move into our home I call the shots. I can make all the YouTube videos I want. I’m really looking forward to being able to post videos again. Lots of DIY videos to be done, ha ha ha. I’ve got so many ideas floating around my head that I just can’t think straight. I’m so ready for this house to be OURS!

So from here on out we’re moving forward & letting go!
I’ll be crossing my fingers for a good outcome to our home inspection and once that’s done if all went well, we move on to the VA Home Appraisal.  Keep checking back for updates as we have them!
