I’ve moved many times in my life and I’m doing it again. This time is a little different as I’m moving back in with family. Going from a 2 bedroom 2 bath space of my own – into a single room shared with my two small children and everything else is shared space with the rest of the family.
I look at each circumstance that arises in my life as an opportunity. This is my opportunity to downsize, to save money, and to spend more time with my family. I just hope we don’t drive each other nuts!
Being able to keep organized and deciding what to get rid of will be a serious challenge. My family, including myself at times, suffers from the depression era thinking of “keep everything, you never know when you’re going to need it someday.” It can be helpful but also a burden.
So, goodbye gated community apartment (yay!) ; here’s to new beginnings and new opportunities.
