I hope the "right" place turns up soon--having been both buyer and seller I know how wrenching the process can be. We have a contract on the home we live in, will have money "free and clear" at the closing but hardly dare to go the miles to where we plan to relocate until everything is done and the money in hand.
It will be a tight and trying time--8 cats and one elderly horse may be living in a motor home!

It definitely will, it always does if you think it will.

It will. My only concern for you is that you bite off more than you can chew with the place in NY, which sounds lovely, but expensive. Do you know why the sellers are so motivated? Is there a highway being planned to go right through the property?

Be careful with yourself and your future by being objective about your purchase. Don't let your situation force you to move too hastily for your own sound counsel.

Above all, believe that the right place will be yours someday. Because it will.

You have so many of us -- so many people you don't even know and can't even imagine -- sending wishes for you out into the universe and hoping you find your farm. Stay strong! Things will work out.

The universe tends to unfold as it should. Something awesome comes your way. I just know it.

So sorry to hear about this, but there is always something else out there. I spend more time than I should looking at farms and land in the northeast. What are your requirements? Post exactly what you want and I bet your readers will be happy to try and help you find it.

It will. Just stay open to all possibilities. Sometimes the universe knows more about what's right for us than we do ourselves.

Stay strong, stay positive.

Blessings,

Paula,
The NY house came down in the price because the sellers are eager to sell and move because the mans health is pretty bad and I think Jenna told me its because they want to move to Florida.

Jenna,
It will. Keep looking around. Hey you can always move in with us. Miles and Maggie would so get along with Jazz and Annie (insert sarcasm). I hear the theme song of Full House playing in my head as I type......call me and keep me posted :)

Jenna - I love your optimism and outlook on life. Every thing will work out. Somehow, it always does. Hang in there, and know that there are quite a few of us hanging with you!

"threw her hands in the air and vowed to change her life. She was going to be more self-sufficient: produce her own food, make her own clothing, live a simpler and more fulfilling life" Recognize the quote from your book?...where did this dream go?

I don't often post here but have been following the blog since I read your book. Going into debt is a big, big step and it's not going to make your life simple. It's a huge burden to shoulder. Huge. So I wonder, where did the simple life go?

Wanting to own your own place, and not be at the mercy of landlords is not (in my opinion)forsaking the simple life - it is working towards it.

The cabin is no longer and option. A small, affordable home is what I strive for now. Something in my budget I can pay off ahead of a 30-year plan, grow into, and that won't break my budget.

It will all work out Jenna. And for the best. You will be led to where you should be. Your special place is waiting for you.

I am always a wishin' our 3 acre farm were 5. It seemed like a lot 25 years ago. We long for more pasture now. Less hay to buy, and room for all the farmy notions I get in my head.

Jenna, I agree that owning a small, affordable home is a great step toward self-sufficiency and the simple life. I bought my house at age 23; I'll be 40 and will pay off the house next year. It's such a great, liberating feeling, to know the roof over your head is really yours. I look forward to my freedom - the ability to work just part-time if I want to! Stay on the course girl - your place will reveal itself in due time.

Better to work with someone willing to deal than someone who may have 'seller's regret' and pull out at the last moment when you have all your eggs in that basket. (Nothing like mixing metaphors here). The NY house has all the outbuildings you will need, and you won't have to rent from neighbors. Keep the faith, girl. You will have your heart completed yet.

I needed this statement in my own life right now; thank you for the reminder!

Walt Whitman comes to mind -

"...Listen! I will be honest with you;
I do not offer the old smooth prizes, but offer rough new prizes;
These are the days that must happen to you:

You shall not heap up what is call’d riches,
You shall scatter with lavish hand all that you earn or achieve,
You but arrive at the city to which you were destin’d—you hardly settle yourself to satisfaction, before you are call’d by an irresistible call to depart,
You shall be treated to the ironical smiles and mockings of those who remain behind you;
What beckonings of love you receive, you shall only answer with passionate kisses of parting,
You shall not allow the hold of those who spread their reach’d hands toward you."

hang in there.
