The home I currently am living in, I’ve been here for 18 years (with the exception of moving off to college.)
There has definitely been loads of memories. Heartache, tears, and milestones that have happened over the past 18 years. I’ve graduated high school, college, kick its, and just overall good laughs.
This house definitely has a very sentimental place in my heart. Very nostalgic.
I always thought that my parents would never move away from this house, but issues are starting to arise that make you question if it’s fixable.
I compare it to my dad’s old SUV. My dad owned a car for 17 years before finally trading it in. The expenses finally just started piling up and exceeding the value of the car.
Same goes for the house.
You just have to make the call before it gets worse.
If you’re unfamiliar with living in California, I have one word to describe it: EXPENSIVE.
I’ve lived in California all my life, so I can’t really compare to other states, but I’m aware of how expensive it is.
But when it’s all you know, sometimes making that move isn’t the easiest step.
I’ve been thinking about moving out for awhile, but the question is where?
I’ve always been calculated in making steps in my life, but maybe in this case, one step is all I need and see where life will take me next.
