The PPhREI Network Highlights drop once a week and include the best posts from the PPhREI network…
Real estate is not always straightforward and sometimes we get thrown a curve ball. For instance, what would you do if your house did NOT sell? That is is tough spot to be in but there are options. The Darwinian Doctor shares 15 things you can do if your house does not sell.
This week The Prudent Plastic Surgeon writes about the Race vs the Finish line and I could not agree more with this post. Lauren and I live by this philosophy. We have a slightly different tag line “Enjoy your journey to financial freedom” but the concept is the same. Many focus on the next big goal of “financial freedom” but they are forgetting to enjoy their time. Others sprint to the end, which can work, but has risks. It also may be an empty reward without a well defined “why”. Lauren and I have slowed our timeline to financial freedom by working a little less and living a little more, while our daughters are young. It has been our best decision. Check out this post. It is fantastic.
This week Lauren and I will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary three years late… We had a special trip planned on March 13th, 2020… We were scheduled to fly to Venice and stay in the same hotel where I proposed 11 years prior. I had a new ring made and the hotel booked over a year in advance… but we all know how the world changed during that time. Our lost anniversary trip was a minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things…I did propose again, and Lauren said yes, but this time in California.
We spent the last few years navigating the changing landscape of covid. Like many we increased our camping trips and road trips. We used our STR in Mammoth more and escaped to the snow and as things gradually opened up we returned to travel. Our major philosophy is: plan for the future while enjoying the journey. We hope you are too.
This week we share an old story of trauma that changed how we approach life and how we appreciate that it is not guaranteed.
