Moving is such a challenging task! So many things to pack, and we don’t even own that much stuff!! I’m trying to maintain my sanity during the process. It’s hard because I don’t like things to be out of order. I think that moving is a good lesson in patience, de-cluttering techniques and trust. I have to be patient with the mess; I get to spend lots of time throwing things away; AND I absolutely must focus on trusting the fact that I’m ok no matter what and that God has good plans for us no matter where we are or what state that place is in!
All of it is reminding me how important it is to take things slowly, think of the bigger picture, and maintain some semblance of a thankful heart!
Just writing this makes me feel overwhelmed, though! It feels like such a tall order. So, I’ve been trying to think of ways to add quality into our moving process, and yesterday Lindsey and I decided to go hang out by the lake that’s near our new place in order to do just that. I didn’t bring my camera, but I did take a couple phone pics!
It was near sunset, and the golden beauty and quiet peace were exactly what I needed to think about the bigger picture and take a break from the mess of a household in transition. We were out for maybe an hour or so, but it didn’t take long to add a quality moment to this crazy process. I’m so glad that we spent time at the lake yesterday because it really helped lift my spirits going into this week.
I’m learning that sometimes adding quality to my life is pretty darn simple. And oh so sweet. :)
