I traded a corner condo unit on the top floor in Manila for a house and lot near the beach in a Province where I have no relatives and barely know anyone. It’s been one of if not the most daunting decision I have made so far and by all accounts, seem to be one of the best.
There ia no simple explanation to why I made the decision but simply put; it’s short term pain for long term gain. I use to pride myself for not being apart of the rat race until I found myself myred in it. Since I was able to identify the problem, I immediately proceeded to persue a solution which ultimately brought me to this juncture.
I am still ways away, albeit enroute to where I want to be. My only gripe is that I wasn’t able to reach this far earlier in life to share my triumphs with family and friends who have passed way too soon.
