A driving success


As I was posting this, I realized that it might look kind of greedy. I promise my original intent was not to say money=success.

:)

HOWEVER, success DOES equal getting rid of our second car on the 1st day we listed it for sale. We actually just bought this car and thought it was a great deal. But after we brought it home, we started feeling uneasy about it (among several other things). We listed it for sale as soon as we could so we could get rid of it before something "potentially" went very wrong...

Who knows,it might have lasted forever. But for us, it definitely didn't feel right.

Success=following your instincts.
Success=selling the car the first day it was for sale
Success=making a $250 profit over what we paid 2 weeks ago...
Success=managing with one car again. We seem to be good at that. :)

I LOVE this shot! It's awesome! The composition is amazingly good. And ya know...money DOES at least make it feel EASIER to feel like a success. At least I feel more successful when I have money in the bank then when I go in debt.
