We’re moving house!
Today we recieved the fantastic news that we have been accepted as tenants in a lovely house. We can get the keys tomorrow at 3pm.
One call and just like that we are able to move in.
Just like that the home in which I was pregnant, the home where we have raised our daughter for almost two years, will no longer be our home.
I feel mixed emotions. I’m excited that we will have a fresh environment which will hopefully encourage greater positivity in our lives due to being in a better location with a garden and no neighbours looking straight into our house from the street.
I feel the closing of a difficult and trying chapter which was blessed most notably by the little girl who fills both our hearts and home with joy. Daughter has become a great source of motivation and strength. She inspires me to be better and to make sure I am working towards creating a happy and stable family home.
I notice that in a period of time where I would usually fall prey to fear and anxiety I am surprising myself. I feel that my few sessions of counselling and personal work towards self development have already greatly increased my ability to cope.
I felt the panic set in and the fear rise screaming “this was unexpected” and “how are you going to get it all done”. This time I didn’t wait for help. I didn’t ask for ideas on what to do next. I simply started to act. I wrote a list of what I could do to prepare and then persisted to make sure I ticked off every item.
Tomorrow will be a big day. It feels strange that I’m not communicating with my mother at the moment, telling her that I’m moving house etc. We’ll catch up eventually.
Tomorrow is a day for my family. My daughter, my partner and me. A day to focus on new beginnings, new potentials and new experiences with my family.
May we all find the strength to face the changes we encounter.
Love and best wishes,
