Someone said to me the other days, moving’s never fun. It isn’t I suppose. But I’be decided that since this really is going to be a great thing for me, I’m going to remind myself why it’s okay for new.
I’ve decided some time ago, that life is as entertaining as you make it. You can walk around like Eeyore, or, you can think like Barney Stinson. Barney is a fictional character, but he’s a funny one. I wouldn’t do the crazy things he did, but why not make the things I do a little more entertaining. It makes life a whole lot less scarier.
Change sucks. But it’s always going to be there. You can either adapt, run, or ignore completely. Running isn’t going to get anyone anywhere. Ignoring it is only going to make things worse because there will be that day when it all crashes down and you’re worse off than before.
Adapting. Much easier. You blend in, or you can make a splash. Or you can just make your hum drum existence a little more exciting. This world is so big and there are so many things to do or try. (I think this is my heart of Barney comes from. He was always trying something new.)
Challenge Accepted is another good one.
Another silly one, but it’s a way to get myself to try new things. I don’t ever actually say these words, but I think them. The most recent challenge accepted was my beer battered deep friend grilled cheese sandwich. No, I could not each the whole thing. But point is, I tried it and it was amazing!
So, I guess what I’m trying to say is that this move, is both of these. I won’t talk about this every day, but it’s a big transition for me. I’m worried that I have to justify this decision to people, when I should be able to just do it. The thing is, I am just going to do it, because I know it’s time. I need to stand on my own two feet and trust this decision no matter what anyone thinks. And really, they could be thinking nothing. I have to make a decision for myself, because I know it’s right, feel it’s right, and know it’s all for the right reasons.
And this is where Barney comes in, I can’t be that serious all the time. I mean it, but I want to be funny about it so people will just trust that I know what’s right for me.
With that being said, I will gush one last time before dropping this subject for awhile. I am so excited for my new apartment. There are built in shelves in two rooms. I’ve decided that this is going to be an amazing place for my stones/crystals. Pictures. Knick knacks that I’ve gathered over the years. And space lighting, or whatever the technical term is! I’ve come to realize that I’ve never bought myself anything, so when I move I’m going to get a new dining room set, bedroom set and an area rug since I found out there’s no carpeting. Maybe a picture or two for the walls. But here’s my chance.
That just means I have to work even harder now to pay for it all! 🙂
I’ve been doing a little so far, each day. I’m making myself do it, so I’m full on ready when that day comes. I want this place to be spotless, and I want the stuff to go fast. With all the wonderful friends that I have, it shouldn’t take long. This is by far going to be the easiest move I’ve ever had.
Who hoooooo to the future!
On that note, I’m off to take care of the dog mom duties of the morning … Have a great day, and thanks for stopping 🙂
