These last two weeks have been hectic and even when you prepare to move it’s still a hassle. I moved recently and completely relocated to another state. The packing was the crazy part. I was packing, working 12 hours days, and trying to run my business while being a parent all in one. It didn’t all go as planned.
During the process of packing I realized that there was way more things then I thought. Like how did I accumulate all this stuff over a year’s time frame? Confused was an understatement, because giving away or sell my furniture didn’t help, there was still stuff to give away. Well, that’s not how it played out. I had to give away so many other things in my house because it couldn’t fit. I was upset and mad about it.
I also didn’t realize that my daughter would be starting school a week after we moved. So, I had to prepare myself for the school year in a week. So many things were happening and honestly I was all over the place. You can just say that I wasn’t prepared for this move. I don’t know why I wasn’t, but I wasn’t. Honestly it didn’t feel real to me.
The Lesson: Things don’t always happen as planned!
I took two weeks away from blogging to focus on the move and getting ready for all the new things at my new home. I also wanted to get out the house and do something. And on top of that waiting for my job to start. However, things didn’t go as planned. My job never got transferred because they couldn’t get in contact with the HR department in the new state, getting out the house caused me to be at my best friend house, I got rid of everything that I have to buy again, and my daughter hair wasn’t how I wanted it for school.
Honestly, I appreciate the way things went. Why? Well, it could have went how I wanted and I would have never realized what was really in store for me. Sometime things happen differently because God has another plan and there is something better out there for you. All the things that was giving away on my move out date, was all the things that carried my pain, depression, and demons. All the things I had to let go also included the things in my house. That stuff is replaceable (in my brother’s voice)! So why keep something that may carry bad energy with you?
The job was hectic for me. I was slowly losing myself in a job once again. Working from sun up to sun down wasn’t good on my mind or body. I was slowly slipping into another depression and that wasn’t going to be good for me. I was upset that I wasn’t able to go straight to work. I just truly believe that God has something better for me and there is something I need to get done with all this down time. Getting out the house was something I haven’t done in forever and it felt so good. Even if I was at my best friend’s house, it was filled with nothing but smiles and laughs. I went to church and had a good time. I met new people to be around. My daughter had a great first day of school and looked beautiful as well. So even though things didn’t go how I planned them. They are going how they should. I’m working on being okay with the process and focusing on being better prepared.
Things may not go as planned, so remember to find the good in it and learn from it.
