Today is the day I sign my lease, this weekend I will be moving over all of the things I want to take myself, and Monday the movers will be here bright and early.

Once again I am closing one door and opening another. Another phase in this crazy life.

Changes can be scary, even when they are something we really want. 

Leaving the comfort of the known for a life in the unknown always produces a bit of anxiety. 

For a while now I have felt like I have been on the outside looking in. Wanting so much to have a place of my own again.

Now the door has finally opened and the barriers have come down. 

There is a lot for me to do over the next couple of months, but even though I am feeling a little anxious, I am also excited about the changes.

No matter where we are in this journey of life, if we are willing to make changes and to move forward I think we will be constantly surprised by what lies ahead.

  7. I've been following your blog for awhile now and have been anxiously awaiting your move to your own place! I couldn't find WHY you are moving to a smaller place and why you haven't felt safe and secure where you are, but I am so glad for you and happy that you are making this change for yourself, that you've wanted to do for awhile now. Kudos to you for doing this and having the guts to do it! I look forward to hearing everything about your new home and your move and settling in. What an exciting (yet a little daunting) time for you!

  8. May good luck be your friend
    IN whatever you do.
    And may trouble be always
    A stranger to you.(Irish blessing)

  9. Thinking of you and sending you the best wishes ever!
    You are going to embrace this with all of your heart and soul-such a good thing.
