The Place I Sold In San Francisco The Week Before The Crash
When I got further into looking at my numbers & realized I was working half the month to pay for the "privilege" of owning a place in the city I knew: Not Worth The Exchange of My Life Energy. And, believe it or not, my place was too big for me at approximately 850 sq. ft. I also had the feeling that time was of the essence and I needed to get my place listed ASAP. Little did I know how hard the beginning of the crash would be - the good news is the buyer cashed out stock and paid cash - we both won big time on the timing.
This is my last day in San Francisco for who knows how long - am taking advantage of high-speed internet & ability to post photos - hence this San Francisco Story.
Am so looking forward to being back at my cabin in the woods - great to see friends BUT I had no idea how the serenity of the woods had been working its way into me AND first layers of stress falling off. The catch: would not have realized unless I had my visit to the city. The way things work!
Simplicity: This is the place where the ideas came together of how I wanted to live my life and started the long process of simplifying.
Frugality: I began to see the possibility of riches without being "rich."
Design: This is an example of my design sensibility - started out with more muted colors & then said forget it this is my place & I happen to love orange.
