In 24 hours I will be arriving at the next house for a few days of work, prepping it for our move in one month. I’m excited, and terrified. Will it feel right spending the first night in the house? My hope is that the experience is one that fills me with peace and a knowledge I’ve found the right spot to call home for a bit… or perhaps longer?
A quote popped up in my feed today which seemed fully appropriate for this moment:
“Your new life is going to cost you your old one.”
I believe I’m okay with that. Needed change doesn’t simply occur without necessary shifts, some small, some all in. This move is the all in kind. A few weeks ago, however, fear was enveloping me and I sat in it for longer than was healthy – until I decided it was time for a little strong talk with myself. Listen girl, you wanted this, you made it happen, now step up to the plate and get ‘er done!
So that’s what I’m doing. Working from a place of empowerment is so much better than a place of doubt. Is there anything going on in your life right now that requires the kind of commitment where the bridge is on fire right behind you as you cross, with the only path available in front of you? If so, please have courage. On the other side of difficulty and challenge lies the truly worthwhile.
