Too Big a Risk
I took down the ‘star chart’ on our bathroom mirror while tears welled in my eyes. Using all our savings, not having a plan to make money on the road, and using all our collateral (home) for a temporary home that would need to be replaced by an even more expensive home down the road is just not the smart thing to do. I was heartbroken. But I didn’t throw them away; I tucked them inside my binder, and closed the cover. A little tiny spark of hope floated around my heart. I knew this was something that my north star said was so right, that I couldn’t just throw my dreams away, so I tucked them away for a while.
