Monday morning, October the 5th, at 11:00 AM Pacific Standard Time, (while I am boarding a plane at the LA airport on my return from our fabulous RISE event
), my home will be put up for auction on the steps of the courthouse here in Reno, Nevada. Every week this sale event occurs, addresses read off by a state official in a dispassionate monotone voice. A number of people, origin unknown to me, silently raise their hands as the bids increase.
“Bummer! “ you say? Well, not so much.
For months, I have been living with conflicted thoughts and emotions about what I knew would be inevitable. 4039 Antinori Drive, my house, would become yet another statistic in the fact that Nevada ranks number #1 in home foreclosures. Hmm... a not-so-great claim to current fame for our "Silver State".
I would like to point out that as I began this blog, I used the term home…then referred to it as a house. The difference is that I have made the “mental shift” in the meaning of those terms in my vernacular. Where I sit and write to you today is wood, plaster, tile…that kind of stuff, a house. And, that’s it! It is all stuff. It is not me or what defines me, only stuff.
In these past few months, there has been much "shifting" in my life. All great things leading to a magnificent, fulfilling life ahead. Not in time to continue to live where I now reside, but this all is a blessing none-the-less. A new career/life path in social media, and the self-development field is emerging, and I see my "purpose" at the center of it all. (More on that later...) So, it's out with the old, and in with the NEW! One thing I know for sure is that, where I live next will be my home, because I will be there and will make it so.
I leave you with these two statements: When one door closes, another door opens. Sometimes it’s just a little Hell in the hallways.
(Pardon my French.) There’s No Place Like Home, There’s No Place Like Home….
... See you at RISE this weekend!!
