So my partner and I have to move house again. The truth be told, we haven’t found anywhere that really we could see ourselves settling into since our last room in June.
We have tried really hard, but it never ceases to amaze me how challenging it is to acquire a property in Brighton.
For example, in London, moving room/ house is a simple transaction. You have enough money for the rent, and deposit, and you pay. Here, however, the current tennants choose you. It becomes a lot more personal. One lot told us we could view it a week later, then meet the tennants the following week then wait for their decision a week later.
Agency fees are also extortionate. £250 per person, then as I am self employed, a guarantor, extra £100.
So what do you do when life throws you lemons? Well, you need to keep on going. I have found it relaxing to have a bath, and go to sleep as it will probably be better in the morning. Here are some inspirational quotes I have found:
Just because my path is different doesn’t mean I am lost
Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. What matters is the courage to continue.
We must let go of the life we had planned so as to accept the life which is waiting for us
I can’t change the direction of the wind. But I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
