So, I have these health problems from time to time. I am VERY sensitive to mold and mildew. So, when I am exposed to it, I get rashes and autoimmune flares that are hard to stop. That being said, I live in Florida. Mold and mildew are EVERYWHERE! It is hard to find a house, workplace, hotel room, etc without it. And, I can smell it from a mile away. My eyes begin to itch/burn, I begin to itch, and everything I eat brings me more discomfort. Recently, I have been considering buying a house. I never wanted to until now—and I know what you are all saying—“she is a money coach and she rents?!?” Yes, for the most part, I love renting. I truly do. If something breaks, I call someone to fix it. I don’t have to be worried about being taken advantage of. I don’t have to worry about the financial aspect of it. It is all part of paying rent. It’s a great scenario for me, at least it has been so far. But, I have been thinking more and more about buying a small home to eventually turn into a rental and keep doing so every few years. The thought is terrifying for me. Not from a financial aspect, but from a health standpoint. I am deathly afraid (no pun intended, because when I am exposed to mold/mildew, I feel like I am dying) of buying a home that seems “healthy” only to move in and find out it has water damage that causes my health to deteriorate. A recent bout at a building where I do consulting work has brought all of these fears back into play. The building has a terrible mold/mildew problem and when I go there I get flares that take forever to go away. In addition, the other day I was watching a video on YouTube and the lady on that video was talking about how she has decided to only spend 50% of what she earns. She is a pretty high earner, but I thought to myself, that is what I want to do. That is my goal. And then I began to stress out again. How will I find a place to buy that will ensure my health but also allow me to reduce my expenses to 50% of what I earn? The thought has been terrifying. But, here is what I know. Everything works itself out. The place is out there, I just have to find it. There is something that will meet all of my expectations, allow me to reach my goals, and stay healthy. I just need to be patient and give myself time to find it. I have the luxury of not being in a terrible rush to find it, so, I can wait until the right place presents itself!
