Costa Rica?

March 14, 2018

I am a little sad writing this post, mainly because my trip to Costa Rica is delayed. I started the mortgage process. Yup, the mortgage process. I applied for a mortgage and started shopping for a home. My trip was supposed to be the first week of April and I have decided to post-pone because of my goals and a possible closing. These are all hypothetical of course but at the same time I planned my dream trip to Costa Rica. 


Now why did I decided to go through the mortgage process?


Well I have been thinking about owning my own home for the last year and a half. I have played with the idea over and over. So I jumped on it. 


I have my pre-approval in hand as well as a wonderful realtor and I am putting in offers left and right. It's absolutely exhausting and I am trying not to get my hopes up. Being the finance junkie that I am, I am going way below what I can actually afford to still have a healthy bank account.


What about Costa Rica?


Well... I have pushed it to my birthday. Which falls at the end of the season so I hope I still have a great time, but if I kept delaying it I don't know if I would actually go. My plans are still the same and I was able to push everything to June. 


Now besides my crazy few weeks of the mortgage process, making the decision to delay Costa Rica, and keeping a healthy lifestyle, I feel that I am still in a slump. Some days I don't feel like doing anything and other days I feel like running around. Things are piling up and I am forcing myself to do it. 


Despite my love for exercise and yoga as I mentioned in a previous post, I will be honest some days I find it hard to get up. On those days I just go through the motions of working and eating, and sometimes exercising, but no where during that day am I giving it my all. Writing to you all definitely helps, and I realized I haven't said hi in some time...
