Regrouping is Not Cowardly
During the month of August, my wife and I learned that she is not only pregnant, but she is carrying twins in there!
As she’s beginning week 16 of her pregnancy, we are facing several big decisions and expenditures. For one, our current apartment won’t work for much longer, as we need one with more room. Our vehicle is too small, so we must replace it, and we are also considering getting help from a nanny.
Not only are these significant life choices, but they’re also heavy financial decisions.
Basically, in order to keep our present quality of life and our ways, we must be willing to spend more.
As we’re debating these changes, I’m also noticing how much demand there is for housing, automobiles, and caretakers. The same cannot be said for the supply, which is tight!
The car I want should arrive in January 2022 and the apartment type I’m looking for is said to be so rare that if my agent gets his hands on one, he suggested I lock in the lease the same day.
My next-door neighbor whose wife is also pregnant and has a one-year-old has resorted to hiring a nanny they hate because they couldn’t find the right one.
The more people I speak to and the opinions I hear, the more I see that debates are endless on any topic under the sun and that the best thing to do is focus on the few things that truly matter.

I told my wife before heading to bed last night that I feel like we’re flying a fighter jet and anti-aircraft fire is being aimed at us. Unlike a real battle, we can simply go back to our home base because we’re creating this war ourselves by looking to win the war all at once.
I see it in the markets, as well as in real life. Don’t create a war front, a battle zone, or a pressured situation for yourself by allowing the scarcity and shortages falsely generated by the healthcare crisis to drive us into such an intense environment that we’d have to resort to using the ejector seat.
Here are a few methods I love to use when my mind is foggy with the mist of many changes all seemingly occurring at once, which also impacts others:
- Alone time: In the end, I like to think things through. Normally, what that means is that I sit and visualize what’s really important in my life and how much enjoyment and value I actually derive from anything, then try to invoke instinctive reactions in my mind that I’ve learned are most accurate.
Logic is a great tool, and so is intelligence, but nothing comes close to inspiration, which I define as the pure feeling of truism. If I sense it to be a bullseye, I’m more comfortable with my decision.
- Verbally explaining my decision to my wife/my partners/a confidant: This is a great tool to use!
There’s value in hearing your own voice as you explain your choices. When it comes to anything, particularly things that do affect the people closest to you, much can be achieved by them fully accepting your ideology!
- Letting time pass: Impulse decisions are not necessarily wrong, but they just might be. Letting time blow by cools the early emotions and helps validate the strength of the direction you’ve taken.
At times, it’s hard to figure out what the best choice to make is. Faith is the force that elevates these three strategies to the next level and keeps everything in proportion.
