Last week, I dodged a bullet. At least that’s the expression I used several times in describing what happened.
I didn’t dodge a real bullet – I dodged a financial bullet.
The short story is I had all my financial investments in real estate starting about five years ago. I was a speculator. I decided to change careers and my cash flow went south. I previously wrote about this here, here, here, here, here, and here.
Last week, I sold my last investment property. That sale saved me from taking a financial bullet direct hit. I dodged a bullet.
It’s ironic because I was strangely confident throughout this time period – I knew somehow it would all work out. I was charging forward without a flak jacket. I had no safety net.
Now I’m confident that the choices I made were correct for me despite the financial losses. I’m doing what I want. I’m doing it my way. And I don’t have to worry now about Donald Trump calling me up for real estate investing advice.
Today, I’m grateful … I dodged a bullet. I’m moving forward.
