Reluctant Acceptance

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 27, 2015, 11:04 AM

Well, the deal is nearly sealed on the home we're selling and on the home we're buying which means we'll finally be moving by end of September and spend the holidays in our new home.

Our new home is smaller than our present one and I don't have a space of my own however, it is a beautiful, modern, and comfortable home.  I've accepted the fact that we are going to have to seriously downsize everything we own.  Perhaps that is a very good thing.  We are going into our middle sixties and should be downsizing our stuff so our kids aren't left with trying to do it after our passing.  Living with fewer things for the past year (our stuff is packed and in the garage) has already taught me that I truly can live without what's in those many boxes.  My husband too has realized he doesn't need what he insisted on keeping when we packed.  We did purge a couple of years ago then last summer again.  Now we need to do it again but with a mind to not having any more packed boxes. 

I hope I can carve an office out of my super size new master bedroom and find a way to fit our grandfather clock and roll top desk in our now reduced sized living room.  Same for smaller kitchen for all my husband's cooking gadgets.  It will be good for all of us to live more minimalist while still keeping the things we truly treasure at the same time.

Hopefully, after this move I'll finally feel settled and ready to return to writing, drawing, and photography.  Also getting back to the gym and walking in my nicer neighborhood.  We'll wait and see how it goes.
