I have had bangs all of my life up until a few years ago. I decided that I was going to tough out the awkward stage and finally have long hair across the board. Bangs were not in-style so it seemed like a perfect time to try to grow them out just to do something different (I’ve had pretty much the same hairstyle since high school).
I grow them out, and what comes back? Bangs. I’m not big on style, but the whole thing makes me chuckle. I seem to have horrible timing sometimes.
It spans over to our finances too. Right now if you have the money, you have some great bargaining power when it comes to real estate. I still regularly check real estate in the area even though we can’t buy anything right now. Wouldn’t you know it…there is a house that has many of the things we are looking for. It’s small, has a nice open layout and has a nice yard for a big garden. Alas, we aren’t in a financial position to pursue the purchase of that home.
We also can’t afford to buy stocks right now. When the markets dip like they have, some say it’s time to buy. I don’t know a lot about the stock market yet, but part of me feels like we are missing out on this.
I try to look on the bright side of things so deep down I know that even though it seems like our timing is off sometimes – things will work themselves out. There will be other opportunities and at some point we will be in a better position to be able to take advantage of them. I just need to have patience (which is tough sometimes!).
