Wow- what a break I’ve taken!
The best way to describe my days right now is organized chaos. As a family, we decided to make the big decision to relocate and within two weeks we moved. Now, I realize that quick moves are not possible for most people. We have young children and very little kept us for just pulling the trigger and moving forward. I should say that we’ve moved again- we have moved many times in a few years time and it does not ruffle me too much.
There is BIG benefit in living simply, clutter free, and knowing what you have and using what you have. It does not weigh you down during life changes. Our closets were not full, the attic had five bins, drawers were not stuffed, and most items were in containers. I truly can move in a day. My stuff was not an obstacle or a stress factor in our transition.
Do I have it all together? Heck no. This is me in an organized yet chaotic moment in time. Why chaotic? Well, we are in a temporary rental situation until we find our home. The children are already in school and finishing out the year- little people are so resiliant. I already have doctors appointments scheduled, swimming lessons planned, and am heading on vacation soon. I’ve only been here for two weeks and I wonder why I’m spinning.
I find that the sooner I’ve got it all figured out (I’m controlling) then we’ll have complete peace. Hmmmm- the truth is it just does not work that way. I’ve said that I believe new chapters in our lives are like riding a wave. You really do have to let some things take time and fall where they are supposed to. So, I’m slowing down the rush and getting out my notebook to capture my thoughts and new discoveries.
I continue to finalize design projects and will be sharing those moments and final photographs within the next months. In the meantime, my business is also undergoing a new chapter. I’m starting with new clients, a new name, and new direction very soon and look forward to seeing how all of that plays out. My e-Design and virtual services are still available!
So, do a bit of organizing, clear the clutter, and ride the wave with me and my new adventure. Love the space you’re in!
