Having a little bit of a hard time with all the things going on in my life right now.
Yes, I said it, I am afraid.
I am sad.
The other day we talked blessing in this post, and all the blessings coming into my life. But we didn’t talk about the things that come with all those, summed up in one word, CHANGE.
I have never been a huge fan of it. With jobs, and a handful of other things, I am ok with it. But this time, it’s different.
With the sale of this house, comes a chapter of my life fully coming to a close. And before you say it, yes I know all the good that are to come, but still, I have a right to be sad, right?
I have lived here for 11 years.
I bought this house with my best friend, who was then my husband.
It was the biggest purchase I have ever been a part of, something that was mine. I felt accomplished.
Memories were created, friends shared times here, and families gathered for holidays.
I raised my puppy here.
I went through a divorce here.
I lived here by myself for several years. And took on the burden of almost losing my home because of it.
I cried here. So many times for a change in my life. Wondering if I was ever going to do the right thing.
I prayed on my bathroom floors many nights for God to bring me peace.
I met the most amazing man, found love again, and the person that I was blessed to have as the father of my child.
We raised our daughter here for almost 2 years.
So much has happened in these past 11 years, the walls of this house could speak volumes.
This is why I am sad. Why I am afraid.
Leaving the comfort, the familiar, what I am used too.
I ask you friends, it’s ok to feel sad right? Have you moved before? How did you handle it?
