Selling my house and Moving… (What a Whirlwind)

flora Newsletter

 

Prepping to sell a house and move while on Week #2 of Vacation has been VERY interesting.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Long days, short nights, sore muscles, finding paint in your hair after you shower, blisters on hands and lots of memories flooding in all the while.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fixing, repairing, painting, weeding and prepping the home that gave my two boys and I a Sacred Sanctuary for the past 7 years is now going to another family.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It has been bitter sweet prepping the house for showing and packing up all the memories that can be packed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s been exhilarating and exhausting at the same time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So WHY did I choose to do this process during my annual 3 week vacation?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Aren’t Vacation’s “supposed” to be about relaxing and doing nothing?!?!?!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In my experience and opinion: Vacations are about recharging your battery and doing things outside of your everyday to recalibrate your mind, body and spirit to see if your life is what you want it to be.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you distance yourself from your everyday “Work” and “Routine” you allow yourself to pull back and regroup.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To reflect on what feels good and what doesn’t feel good in your life.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It allows you to also lean into every part of what’s coming up to see what wisdom is there for you to realize.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Prepping the house, packing, decluttering and the like has truly allowed me to appreciate even more the life I’ve created for myself.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It hasn’t been easy.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some days were HARD and lot’s of tears flowed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But with the hard times, come the times and experiences that memories are made of.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Memories that take your breath away. Cause tears of laughter, joy, gratitude, love and peace to stream down your face.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This 3 week vacation is ushering in a new era for me. I’ve been an empty nester for a year and a half now.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s time to flip the page and see what the next chapter will bring.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What chapter are you on in your life?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And are you afraid to turn the page to a new one?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hugs to you today!
