Never Drag Your Feet When You Know Change Is Coming

Last September, I was questioning the possible downsizing that I was facing.  Yes, I needed to do it, but didn’t know just how far “down” that sizing had to be.  Well, to keep it short and sweet, I had to go from a 4 bedroom 2 story home (well, 2nd story was only a bed and bath) to a storage unit and the bare minimum to take with me to my new temporary room.  I think I deleted a few of the photos I had of the house back then, but do have a photo of the garage.
Last September


In the process of downsizing and moving, some great friends came to help with the process.  Some helped to sort and pack, some helped me realize what needed to “go”, and then some came to help with a moving sale.  You don’t realize how much you have until you try to separate it enough for others to see it in order to sell it. 

Here are some photos of the house just before the sale started.  (I promised a few people that I would share some)

The garage


The desk








Kitchen table and dish set
Back yard


Kitchen












And now, some when it was all over.  The biggest lesson I learned, never drag your feet when you know a big change is coming your way.

What used to be my "craft" room

I had some incredible support during this process, and am now preparing to enter the next chapter in my life.  Scary, exciting, challenging, new.  I can’t help but wonder what tomorrow will bring!  

Happy Friday everyone!

Sometimes material items just weigh us down and keep us from moving forward, we found this out when we downsized our "stuff"... The memories associated with the stuff are still in our hearts tho!
I can't wait to see where this new journey takes you and knowing God is in charge of it means it will be a joyful journey..
So proud of you for making the touch choices!

Mr. B just pointed out that I said touch instead of tough in the last sentence....LOL!

Julie, you'll be well taken care of when you allow him to lead you. Best of luck in your new adventures.

Thanks everyone! I'm excited and a bit anxious, but all good things ahead. God is in control and I'm ready to "forge ahead". :)
