Don't make Hasty Decisions....
This last summer I lost my mom to breast cancer. After this happened I found that very little in my life seemed to mean much to me at all and I started selling off things that I really LOVED in the past but seemed to mean so little to me now.
However I got some advice (after most of the selling) that said I shouldn't make any major changes for at least a year and at least 6 months for things that were like this. I had purchased some items that I LOVED and looked for a long time.
We also were low on finances due to some unforeseen costs and the fact I am not currently working on anything other than filling in on occasion for some businesses and an occasional payment for some online work (I normally due for free). So making the money seemed like something I found purpose in.
Today....I decided I was not going to sell 2 items that I looked for a long time, got good deals on and are really "me". The money seemed more important than things in light of my loss. But now I've decided if I'm going to sell anything more than has really "spoken to me" in the past...I will wait until after the new year to decide to sell.
The worst part was contacting the people who I had talked to about selling. So far the one person said she found something better for less price (not sure if she was upset or not) and the other has not responded. If either of them were to get really upset I would go ahead and sell...I want to keep my word. But I think they both understand what I'm going through and are not the type...but one never knows!
Here are my items that I love...The buffet I got for only $100 and the top for about the same (they don't fit together as you can see) I would like to hang the top separately so they aren't so disparate in size....
