Submitted The Loan Application

The Calm Before The Storm

September 23, 2019

On this beautiful September morning here in Florida, I slowly sip my morning brew thinking of what to write. Everything is so peaceful.

I'm in the process of buying a new business, something that came up rather suddenly and because of that these past few weeks have been insane. I haven't had a minute to breathe, let alone catch up with my thoughts. It's so incredibly exciting, but also so incredibly scary. I'm constantly ping-ponging between "I just want it to happen already" and "I don't know if I'm ready".

But this morning, I wait. On Friday I submitted my loan application, something I spent weeks preparing, thinking of every possible question that may arise during the process. I was so overly prepared that all my files were numbered and I even included an itemized list for the recipient to follow.

Now, with nothing to do, but wait for a response, I sit here, calm, waiting for the chaos of what's coming. 

I'm not complaining though. I learned recently through counseling that I'm at my happiest when I'm being challenged. I think that's why I do so well when I play competitve sports. The whole nature of sports is that its challenging, so having a few doses of that per week keeps me pretty happy. Add a second business to the mix and I should have my hands full with challenges.

Now, halfway through the year inching towards my 30th birthday, I'm slowly reaching my prime. In my early twenties I would've laughed at that thought. 30 sounded old. But it's not true. I'm the strongest, fastest, wisest and probably most financially sound than I've ever been in my entire life. 

And it's just the beginning.
