Today’s Challenge To Hold The Line

My husband and I have had rental properties for years. So far we have had incredibly great experiences. Today marks a shift in that. One day. One shift. That’s all.

We now have a property with a broken contract. We’ve decided to step out of the way. It’s going to cost us thousands of dollars. It’s not fair. It’s not right. The way our tenants are being is not moral or ethical. It’s dishonest.

The natural man and woman in both of us wants to go after the tenants. But we decided it’s not worth the cost–in dollars, emotionally, and physically. In another situation, we may decide to involve lawyers but not this time.

As I hung up the phone just an hour ago, I wanted to scream–and so I did! I let out the frustration and the unfairness. And then I knew right then that I had a choice to make–to Hold the Line or to allow the injustice of it all to sink me into a pit of despair. I am the only one who can decide how I react to this upsetting news. HOLDING THE LINE means to not yield to the pressure of a difficult situation.

I don’t know if we’ll see the money come back to us from the damages that we are going to have to pay for. I don’t know if the tenants will be brought to justice for their part in all of this. I don’t know what will happen next with this property. But I do know that if I HOLD THE LINE and keep my power by feeling my emotions of contempt and anger in an appropriate way so their lose their hold, my husband and I will be able to create the next best thing for us with this property.

What experience are you having right now that HOLDING THE LINE will turn the tide in your creation?

It matters!

Life is full of challenges–mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Being able to live from the wisdom gained from our challenges and mistakes is what enables us to become the best versions of ourselves.
