Carl took his mother and the kids to Charlottesville today. While he visited some potential employers, the kids and their grandmother spent the day at the Discovery Museum – an amazing place for children’s imaginations.
Meanwhile, I had an undisturbed packing day. My first few days of packing were stressful, as I was struggling not to feel overwhelmed by it all. Both emotionally and practically.
I feel I have come a long way emotionally since our decision last week. Each day my trepidation fades and my confidence and optimism grows. Trying to pack last week was emotionally overwhelming for me.
But today, today was easy. I was able to let go of a lot. A lot of stuff, and a lot of emotional baggage. Four bags of donation items, three bags of trash, and lots of organizing.
Each day I feel more confident and optimistic. I finally feel we are moving toward a more authentic life. And it feels good.
