Moving On Up!

In case you missed my big announcement on Facebook, my husband and I bought a house! 

In my "Life Event" Facebook post I explained why I once believed I'd never buy a house. 

I’ve always felt that buying a house is like marrying a community. It’s like saying I’m with you for better or for worse, till debt due us part, or something like that. For most of my adult life I’ve feared this kind of commitment. I’m a gypsy at heart. I get bored with places in a flash.
But the Birmingham area -- mostly because of See Jane Write -- has changed this heart of mine. She’s making an honest woman out of me; she’s convinced me to settle down.

So I guess you could say my husband and I put a ring on it – metaphorically at least. We're homeowners!

We're calling the house Bowsers' Castle, which you'll appreciate if you were a gamer back in the day (or now). 

But that Facebook post only told half the story.

Honestly, there was a time when I never thought I could buy a house. When I was younger saw homeownership as something reserved for folks from wealthy families. I come from a family that never had much money. Even though my parents worked very, very hard they always struggled to make ends meet. They weren't able to purchase a house and we were no stranger to eviction notices taped to the front door.

But on December 31, 2014 I declared that 2015 would be the year I would go after all those things I once believed were beyond my reach and now here I am a proud homeowner.

What about you? Are you making the same mistake young Javacia once made? Have you convinced yourself that a dream of yours is impossible and out of reach? 

As we enter a new month, I want to challenge you to take on a new mindset. I want to challenge you to believe that you can make your wildest dreams come true and then I want you to develop a plan to do just that. Remember a goal without a plan is just a wish and nothing will work unless you do, so let's get busy!
