I've never been the type of person to have a one track mind where I obsess over one thing until it's done. I've always been the type that basically shifts from one thing to the next like a bouncy ball.
My mind has been focused on preparing our home to sell. While it has been a positive endeavor on one hand, I seem to be completely obsessed. Each time I finish one task, I look at something else that could be painted, fixed, or moved.
If I'm honest with myself, this will always be the case in our home. It was built in 1946, and even though it is so charming and unique, there is always something that could be changed in it. Right now I'm working on painting in the bathroom, and in the back of my mind I realize that the next owners might come in and decide that painting the bathroom a different color is the first thing they are going to do.
So, why am I obsessing over it? I think much of it has to do with wanting the next owners to have as much happiness and love that we've had in our home for the last decade. I want it to be perfect for them. I want them to be able to move right in and not think about changing a thing if they don't want to.
Inevitably they will want to though. We did. Don't get me wrong, there are a couple of rooms that we didn't change at all, but we did customize other areas that were more fitting to our personalities and tastes. And that's the way it should be. That's what makes it a home.
Soon, the obsessing will be over. We meet with our realtor on Monday and then will hopefully have it on the market within a week or so after our meeting.
In the mean time, I have a bathroom to finish painting...and what else???
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
