Are you referring to my heart or root chakra or something?
Yes, I see what you are saying. Really all I want to do is paint...every day just paint. That is what would make me happy all the time. I'm miserable because I decided to stop painting years ago and concentrate on getting better (clinical depression).
I decided that painting and being an artist was what was keeping me in the melancholy place that seems to be my nature...and I decided I wanted to be happy, so I gave all that up, even though painting is what makes me happy...even if I'm sad whilst doing it!

Your awesome goal is scarier -- but also a lot more exciting -- than getting a place.
If you REALLY wanted a place, you could get one in an afternoon. But you don't care enough about that "goal" to make it happen fast. Deep down you'd rather be doing something else.
