|What we leave behind.
I know there are many worse things than moving, but for today, this is at the top of my least favorite list. Just when you think you have everything possible packed, more stuff reveals itself. Where did all this stuff come from??
But boy, can you find treasures as you wade through your stuff – a birthday card from my dad with three dollars in it where he wrote, “to my favorite daughter” (I am his only daughter, but still ❤️). I also looked at thousands of pictures that helped catalog the beautiful and fun times I have had in my life. It just never gets old to see happy memories captured.
Still, I am leaving the town I raised my family in and have called home for the last 28 years. Our roots are here. My friends and family are my lifeblood, and I am already missing them though I know good relationships don’t require close proximity.
I am moving to my dad’s favorite spot and a place that feels like home. Perhaps I am supposed to be there so I can feel his presence more deeply. Maybe I will be more at peace when I sit in his favorite chair, sipping coffee and reading with the beautiful backdrop of the Berkshires in my view. I imagine that this move will bring a smile to his face even as it brings a tear or two to mine.
Change is complicated – moving forward in one way means leaving something else behind. But change is necessary if you want to move towards the life you are meant and want to live.
Change opens space to let new possibilities and experiences in.
I intend to live my life to the fullest.
How about you?
