I’m going to get a promotion and buy a house.
Easy to say when it’s just in letters, on a back-end-of-the-internet blog. But that is what I’m going to do.
The promotion is already happening, a bit. Not in a permanent way, but in a very definite we-can-work-on-this way. In a moving forward productively way.
The house thing is happening as well, in that I have looked at a lot of houses on the internet, and one in person, and I’ve talked to an adviser about mortgages, and googled “the best place to live in Leeds”.
It’s all terrifying.
I’ve made a bit of a significance out of always moving forward, and always bettering myself in small ways every day. Right now I have a lot of times where I feel like there is no possible way of climbing the enormous mountain of life, or even the enormous mountain of getting out of bed in the morning. But I also have a few times where all these things feel achievable, and like things that I have watched other people do with great success.
And like things that will not end the world even if they don’t pan out perfectly.
So here I go, taking steps.
