Moving equals change- cleaning- packing- sell it – keep it- share it– trash it.
My dad was a Colonel in the Air Force and we moved as a family…let’s see–
Louisiana, Ohio, California, Florida, North Dakota (Yep), Texas, Louisiana, Nebraska, Arkansas, back to Nebraska,
Then Bill and I got married and the moves continue…
Omaha, 91st St, Nottingham, Lake Forest, Ill., back to Overland Park, Ks., 2 houses, Nashville, Lenexa, KS, Leawood, KS, Las Vegas, Condo, house, willows, and now… again.
So what have I learned?
Things change and it’s easier when we go with the flow, instead of resisting. Change can be fun, it is still work, but can be fun, if we let it.
Just think–You get the opportunity to look through all your stuff. If you haven’t used it in 2-3 years you probably won’t. And if you haven’t worn it… you definitely will not. So Re-cycle or Re-Gift. There is someone out there who can probably use most anything you have and would like to release. There are women’s shelters, Goodwill, Salvation Army, Boys and Girls clubs for donations. Consignment shops are great source to re-cycle your things, and make a little cash. There is even Ebay to put your special things that will give you a chance to make some money too.
The main idea is to release some of the ‘stuff’. It is empowering and makes the change a little easier. It also makes less to pack, and that is a good thing.
I’d love to hear some of your thoughts….. what does ‘moving’ mean to you?
