Time for a bit of a rant. Why does it seem so easy to get excited about things but ever so hard to make them happen?
Over the past weeks I've been actively searching for the right project to work on, but haven't been able to make any progress. Things that I've found are either way overpriced, way above my budget/capabilities or too far away.
I did however find the perfect airplane advertised on line. It is ready to fly home and it just about meets everyone one of my requirements except one - price.
It's listed price is above what I am able to afford at this point in time and I'm not sure if the seller is motivated enough to come down in price enough to make it inside my budget.
I could easily take a loan or line of credit out to buy it, but I don't think I'd be able to sleep at night with that debt.
Guess I'm stuck trying to balance this funk I'm in against moving forward. Frustrating.
I am reminded of a quote I saw recently from singer Jimmy Buffet:
"Searching is half the fun, life is much more manageable when thought of as a scavenger hunt as opposed to a surprise party"
Hopefully this will start to happen for me and my hunt for meaning moves along. I hate the feeling of being in neutral.
