Probate can be one of the most frustrating things to deal with. It takes a lot of time to sort out. For example, it has been about 18 months since my dad died, and they recently postponed the final hearing for yet another 2 months for minor things such as my cousin moving because he got a new job. Really crazy stuff like that. One thing I DID learn was that both Michael and I were stuck in limbo waiting for that money to come. It has taken longer and longer, and the amount has gotten smaller. So we both made a DECISION. To accept the money when it comes, and to live in the NOW.
What do I mean by that? I mean we will do what we can to work on our goals now while we are still in California. We will also be looking at was to cut expenses even more and focus on investing more seed money to help our business grow. But mainly it is a MINDSET change. Instead of letting the money that is currently tied up in Probate affect us so much, we accept that it will be there when it is and not be worrying or anxious about setbacks in getting it. Instead we do what we can with what we have, and once the money is here then we will move.
Yes we are MOVING to another state, Tennessee. This is for both personal and business reasons. California is our home state and we do love it, BUT it is very expensive to live here and buying a house here is totally out of the ball park. Besides that my sister in spirit Cat lives in TN. She is not only dear to me personally, but she has written many books which our publishing company will be publishing for her. Living near her will make that process a lot easier.
Since making that DECISION to live in the NOW, great things have started to happen, opportunities that were not there before are here now. Also our productivity level and creativity has increased ten fold. We also feel freer and like a massive weight is gone from us.
Have you ever made a DECISION that made a major impact on your life? If so, feel free to share with me in the comment section, I would love to hear about YOU.
