In 1993, I became divorced and with my eight-year-old son, I began looking for a house to purchase. The house we rented for the previous 14 years sold and we had to move. For 20 years, I wanted to buy a home, but my son’s father did not want the responsibility of home ownership. Because I did not make very much money at the time, I qualified for a government-housing loan for low income and first time homeowners. Thus began the process of looking for a house to buy. This was to be one of the hardest experiences of my life. I was not only newly divorced and a single parent, but I had no experience what-so-ever with buying a home.
I did some research on the sale and building of the three houses put on this section of land, and found out that the developer removed all the top soil, something that is no longer allowed by state law, and had collapsed the underground water drainage systems by bringing in tons of gravel to replace the tops soil. The water began filling the property as soon as the underground drainage collapsed.
If you have a plan, it will work out better. Just remember that you can never control all the factors, so be ready to let go and not take it too seriously. Unless you are involved in a life threatening activity, stay focused and take necessary risks, without fearing a life-death scenario. You always have choices. Do not allow yourself to feel “painted into a corner.” Boring jobs are stressful and potentially unhealthy, so consider your options if you find yourself in a work situation that is not using your full potential. Even if it takes time to investigate and then to retrain or Collect to dos, you can make efforts to move yourself into a more positive situation. It helps to focus on the end goals and results as you move along your path.

I remember coming home from school, I went to Pinecrest in North Hollywood then, and wanting to go to John Johns house, my Mom said I couldn’t, something had happened. She sat me down and said his Uncle had died, was cleaning his rifle and it had accidentally gone off. I remember the sadness that lasted in their home. He’d lived in a single wide trailer in their driveway. It wasn’t until many years later when I was talking to my Mom that she told me it hadn’t been an accident, but you don’t tell children that small about suicide.
Do not allow ones feelings, particularly despair hold you back. You must remember that it will be impossible for you to accomplish your goal, if you are unable to restrain your emotions and maintain a clear mind.
