The past month has been a whirlwind. I didn’t really want to write about it here because every time I sit to write, I feel like I’m making excuses. I’ve come from a world where excuses are only just practice in creative BS. I’ve never liked them, and I often have no patience for them. So instead I’m going to celebrate my inability to find the time to blog. You see, one large aspect of my DMP has been coming true. My family and I applied for a redevelopment real estate loan and got it. It is through an excellent program that focuses on redeveloping communities by rebuilding homes and finding neighborhood minded individuals that are willing to “Be a Neighbor” and give back to their community.
A big part of this program is contributing man-hours to the rebuilding of the home. So aside from homeschooling my 3 boys, driving my oldest to her school events, rebuilding a house, packing up our current house, and throw a couple family gatherings in the mix, I just didn’t make the time. Exhaustion played no part in that either mind you.
How this fits into my DMP is the acquiring a home and starting a school part. Feel free to read my “Interview” for more details. The program gives us a 15 year interest free loan to pay back all initial construction and purchase costs. And the house is big enough to host tutoring events and other assistance programs for the neighborhood. (If anyone is looking for an awesome charity to donate to, check out Fuller Center for Housing)
I’m going to be honest. The last few weeks I’ve felt like I’ve been in the backseat of the car when it comes to this program. But the beauty of it, is that it is still driving down the road. I believe it is in the awesomeness of the leadership and the Mastermind alliance mentality. Even though I cannot give 100% to the exercises or training, I still feel like I’m being pulled down the right path due to the combined energy of the group.
