It Can Be So Hard...

I've never been much of a car person... I've just taken the car that has been available, never reached for the unattainable ones. Now it seems that I'm torn between 2 cars... one that my heart yearns and the other that my head says I should take. I never thought I would be in this situation... making choices... it's usually the car that chooses me.

My heart's favorite is Jeep from 80's... this is where my head says to my heart: "Are you absolutely out of your mind?" It's dented and looks a bit rough outside, but my heart doesn't care... it sees it's character and is absolutely in love with it. This Jeep is situated very far away and it would take a lot of effort to get it here.  It doesn't even have safety belts and it's trunk is still full of previous owner's stuff. And now that I've shown interest to it, the owner has become hesitant and doesn't seem to want to sell it.

My head's choice is Volvo from 2007. Clean, very few miles behind it, has every safety equipment you can think of and best of all, it's very close by.... I should be thrilled to have this kind of vehicle in my reach... that's what my head is telling me, over and over again. But my heart disagrees, it doesn't miss a beat when it sees this car, it just tolerates it.

There seems to be no way of pleasing both head and heart. If I'll listen to my heart, I might end up waiting for a car that I never get and if I'll follow my head's suggestions, my heart will be broken with this safe choice...

Too bad the good cars don't grow on trees... I don't think I've ever seen one that would be available and would also appeal both my head and heart. Those 3 requirements create a pretty challenging triangle...

I believe you will find a 3rd car that will appeal to both your head and heart.

Hmm... was I talking about cars...

Go for the car your heart is set on. You will always miss that, but you will never miss the logical car. There will be a logical reason somewhere for the battered but lovable car. One o fmy prised posessions is a little toy car that has been scrathed to the point where I'm not sure what colour it used to be. I saw it at the bottom of a stream. So i clambered in to get it. To be honest it truly is a hideous beast. I live near a toy shop, I could buy a toy car any day, but no. I love the toy I have. <br />

I'm not trying to compare my little toy to a real car. I'm sorry if it comes off that way. Im trying to ask you whether you want to be the owner of a car. Or the owner of a car with a story. <br />

What ever you choose let me know, Im curious now lol :D. I hope you can make a decision you will be happy with.
