I'm interested in hearing about your long term plans. I spent 5 years scrimping and saving, paying off debts, and dreaming about what it would be like to have my place in the country. I have my beautiful piece of land now, with improvements, an old mobile home, big shed, chickens, fruit trees, the big garden, etc.. I've been here exactly a year. I guess at this point I feel as though I'm "blocked" in my head, I can't seem to come up with the plans on what to do next. I'm of the mindset "Believe it and you'll see it", or creative visualization. I can "see" the pond and barn, and the new house, all in the plans for the next few years. I want it to come together in greater detail, rather than "Someday I'll have a pond". I've had a wonderful time this past year, enjoying the fresh air and country sounds, and I've gotten a lot done. Maybe it's because winter is fast approaching, but I feel like I'm drifting along without a solid plan. That makes me uncomfortable. Maybe it's because of some of the posts I've read recently, about prosperity followed by hard times. Whether it's goals you've met or plans you have in place, I really would like to hear about it. The greater the detail, the better. Thanks.
