"You have to be comfortable in your own skin". This particular sentence has been floating…
I am in the midst of a move. Surrounded by boxes with just 5 days to finish before the movers arrive.
This is my least favorite thing to do. However, this move has already taught me things. I am going to share some today as they might also apply to you.
- I own too much stuff. It is just hard to avoid all of the items in a life when you must handle and pack them all. Many things failed to justify their existence here and have now moved elsewhere.
- Flexibility is nice but one should work on mobility as well. Several days of crawling around, shifting around different levels, and squatting for long periods is hard. I will definitely be reevaluating my mobility game.
- I could have kept my kitchen this clean for myself rather than just as a parting gift to the next guy. My kitchen is gleaming. It is spotless and giving me so much joy. And, it didn’t even take that long to get the stove and fridge to shining splendor. Definitely looking to do more work that expands enjoyment in the new place.
- Breathing is still everything. This has been stressful at times and I’m sure it isn’t quite done with that. My breathing practice and tremor work have been critical to keeping the balance.
- Lastly, everything is temporary. Moving is a reminder than even big life shifting things are impermanent. We can do the hard things and the unpleasant things with full knowledge that the other side of it is coming.
On that note, I will be taking the week off from the blog as I get this done. I will return next Wednesday with Office Space and the continuation of my series on authenticity and professionalism.
Have a truly wonderful week!
