Moving day is quickly approaching and I couldn’t be happier. It’s been a long struggle to make what my husband and I thought would be a better life for our family. We’ve been stuck in a three-year nightmare ever since the economic downturn swept us up and away. But now, there truly is a light at the end of the tunnel. I can breathe again. Paring down, scaling back, refocusing our energies in different ways will make for a much more serene life filled with more opportunities for all of us.
I remember an earlier post I wrote that shared a fortune I thought worthy of keeping. I can truly say that through all of this financial mess and emotional turmoil, I always made sure to “act as though it were impossible to fail”. Acting got me through the darkest hours and now I can feel the rewards slowly making their way to my doorstep.
I must say, too, my children have been wonderful throughout all of this. God bless them, when we talked openly and honestly with them, they didn’t blame, they didn’t become resentful. And they had every right to. We took them from the friends and neighbors we all loved and the only home they’d ever known. But no, they understood , stopped asking for things, and became even more grateful for what they got.
So the next time I officially post here, it will be from my new office in my new rented home. I will have a huge grin on my face and serenity in my heart. But for now, with moving day a day away, and more packing than I ever want to do ever again, I am far from serene. I’m a swirling mass of chaos! Calgon… take me away! 😉
Hugs and snugs,
