Well, I think the scales have tipped and I'm now on the other side of my grief and resistance over moving.
Full acceptance has arrived. And not the resigned kind, either.
Each day this evolution feels more real and thankfully, more okay inside my heart.
For the past few weeks it was like 90% dread, fear and sadness and 10% hope and excitement.
But I noticed that yesterday when I shared the news about Montreal with someone new, I only felt excitement.
And again today at the gym when I shared the news I was genuinely happy about the new story I'm in the process of creating.
As I continue to pack and clean and sell and share my things, I find increasing moments of peace.
I love watching people pick the perfect things for them and I love seeing my things go where they'll be most loved.
Every day it gets easier to wrap my head and heart around the idea that I'm heading towards my next home. I'm becoming more detached from this one in the process.
It feels less and less terrifying and life-shattering the more people share their thoughts, words of wisdom and experiences with me. The more I see and feel how excited so many people are about my next chapter. The more I feel loved and supported as I make my way from here to there.
My Facebook crew and real-life crew have gotten me through so much over the years. This has been no exception.
I cry my tears and share my fears and you are there with love.
I express my heart and share my joy and you are there with love.
I am fully myself in front of the world and you are there with love.
Thank you for all the ways you help to carry me through, sweet friends.
