This is literally how my house is beginning to look. Next weekend I will be moving out of my current apartment and into a new one. The apartment I’m in now was my first place, and when I moved out back in March 2011, I really had no idea if I could take care of myself. A 28 year old shopaholic living on her own?!
But as it turns out I am actually more responsible than I give myself credit for…Lol
Although a few bad things happened, a lot of great things have happened in my life since I moved out. While I have been living here I’ve lost my grandmother, freed myself from an on-again/off-again relationship, published my thesis, graduated from Georgetown, started my blog, fallen in love with someone new, and filled up at least 4 journals with all of my personal thoughts.
It’s crazy how you see your life going one way, and God says, “I know that’s what you think you should be doing, but let’s do this instead…” Lol…What I thought my life would look like at this stage is nothing like what I’ve experienced, but dare I say that it’s better than I could have imagined. Life isn’t perfect at all (and never will be) and yet its still incredibly beautiful.
It’s funny how packing up your life and moving some place new makes you nostalgic, but more importantly, gets you excited about what is to come. Moving on seems to be the theme of my life this year…So many new things to discover, so many things I had to let go of in order to move forward.
I am really excited about moving and I can’t wait to decorate my new place. I’ll be sure to post my décor ideas here on the blog so you guys can see the progression. I think I’ll actually put my paintings up this time around.
BTW: I don’t have any internet access at home right now so my posts will be a little sporadic until I get settled in to the new spot. I hope you all are having a wonderful week. Talk to you soon. xx
