When we moved here, just over a year and half ago, we downsized to a house half the size of our previous home. We did so with the purposeful intention we were living with way too much stuff. We purged a lot before we moved, but even now I still feel like this poor little house is operating like a pack mule for all of our possessions.
When I meet military spouses who talk about moving 15 plus times, I'm in awe.
I suppose it gets easier right?
Now faced with an impending move this summer, I've begun preparing and I'm here to tell you I don't know why I have waited so long. Maybe it was the busy work schedule, or weekends filled with youth sports games or maybe just too lazy to get started.
This past weekend I spent two half-days rearranging our master bedroom. I cleaned, organized and got rid of a lot of things we no longer needed. The entire process was very therapeutic and as I sat in bed last night looking at my "new view", I couldn't help but say to myself with no one really listening, "I like this new view of the world."
