being a homeowner

Being a homeowner has been challenging and rewarding in ways I wasn’t necessarily expecting. There have been a few times I have completely lost my shit in frustration, but there have also been times where I have been really proud of myself for fixing something on my own.

I had a minor freak-out the first night living in my new house because the pilot light on the fireplace had gone out and I didn’t know there the gas light was downstairs to turn it off. I did figure it out but there was a moment where I questioned why I bought a house. I was so used to calling a landlord when there was a problem.

However, there have also been moments of triumph. I am very lucky because the previous owners left all the manuals to everything in the house. There have been a few times now where I have been able to use the manuals left behind to troubleshoot and figure out issues.

Instead of focusing on the things I don’t know about homeownership or the times I got frustrated, I try to think of the things I have accomplished. I make sure to give myself praise and to feel good about figuring things out. I make an effort to be proud of myself.

3. King of Pentacles: I need to work on my patience and determination. I also need to work on personal growth and goals.
