I will prelude this blog post with an apology for the slight ramble, but this has been weighing on me for weeks now . . .
This week our house is totally turned upside down, well because we are moving, but I am a person that has to have everything in its place to keep my world running smoothly (no pun intended). For me this week, I just feel so out of sorts and unorganized. I can’t complete a task without thinking about what I need to be or should be doing instead. The upside to all of it is that I get to do some cleaning out of the junk. Weeding out the crap that has been pushed into the closets in my “out of sight, out of mind” concept and with this move I’m throwing it all away (or donating if it’s worthy of that).
When we began the idea of having to find a new house I was totally bummed, but as the weeks have passed and we found our perfect “new home” to us, I feel more calm and at peace with it. Situations change, things we once thought were most important become less significant and finding the calm balance amidst the chaos is exactly where I have found myself this week.
I find it so funny going through everything how much “stuff” I have accumulated over the past 3 years we have been in this house. Things that I had totally forgotten we had and things that I held onto because I just was not ready to part with them yet. Cleaning out the cobwebs of crap. I like it, it’s freeing, throw caution to the wind, as it seems, and just junk the junk and move on. For me this exercise in removing these things from my life will not only de-clutter my new home, but it will also keep me from living in the past, which is certainly not the direction I am going.
So with this post, I say . . .
Let go, let go of the things you cannot change, get rid of the things that hold you back and always remember, today is a new day and there is ALWAYS tomorrow. Choose to be calm and find peace with the hand that is dealt to you, I promise that though it may seem unbearable right now, there is something greater waiting for you in the days ahead.
