As my life continues to unravel from this move, I am finding myself wanting to move with less and less, to start over, from scratch, building a new home, one less bogged down with stuff and more utile…to create a space that is serene to us and conducive to a new and different lifestyle focused on our needs and wants and not what our home can provide for others. It is time that I give the focus of my energy and attention to someone who needs it: me.
So I am going to use this new space, this move, this change to be the point of starting over with many other areas of my life as well: eating right, exercising, refocusing on my art and music and worrying less about quantity and more about quality. I want to use my time more wisely to accomplish the things that I know I want to accomplish and I want to devote my time to the activities and people that are actually deserving of it. I am also going to try to ask for more and give less to the people in my life to create a better balance for myself and my relationships.
With every ending, there is a new beginning. Here’s to a fresh start.
