It happened

I can't believe it's already over. Well, almost. We still have some stray stuff at the old place and cleaning to finish up but for all intents and purposes we are in the new place. The commute to work is pleasantly easy, which is a nice surprise.

I'm not sure how it happened but it's already over. Nothing but piles of boxes and a wrist pain that I can't shake to remind me that another "big life change" happened. I've moved so much in the last 7-8 years of my life that it is hard to believe it is considered a major life event - one that especially leads to a ton of stress. Well the stress part isn't hard to believe, am i right? There are still some stray items at the old place and some (read: A TON) of cleaning up to do but we are officially in the new house and it's kind of crazy.

This whole move has been a major catalyst in opening up my eyes and really forcing me to see that changes need to happen, and soon - gradual but soon. This really isn't "news to me" because I've been working on a big personal project, some of you may have seen me bring up on Instagram (I'll be posting about this soon!). Today just happened to finally be the day that everything came crashing down around me and really broke me. It forced me to admit some things to myself. So here is a short list to unload:

- Life is a lot like a plane crash, you have to put your oxygen mask on first before you can take care of anyone else.

- Even when it feels like you are all alone, going crazy and no one could possibly understand... there is someone nearby that completely gets it. Reaching out is not weakness.

- Anger is manifested fear. Feel it. You must.

- Tycho is great for getting lost in your head. Seriously, I'm addicted.

Goodnight all :) Tomorrow is another day (closer to vacation).
