I had a conversation with a realtor today, the second in two days. She is an old friend of ours–she actually sold us the house we are living in now. As we were discussing the possibility of putting our house on the market in the near future, she started to list out the things we would probably want to do before showing it. And then she added:
“And of course: you will want to get rid of a lot of the clutter.”
It was all I could do to keep from blurting out: What the heck do you think I’ve been doing for the past 98 days!
Whether I’m “ready” for it or not, life events are going to start to accelerate over the next three months. My options are: struggle against the change, or go with the flow.
I am absolutely exhilarated by the decision I have made and the process that is now underway. But that doesn’t mean change is easy. I am fully prepared (or at least I think I am fully prepared) for the roller-coaster of emotions that we will all go through between now and July. While I may not be able to have an impact of the pace of change, or even the emotions that go with it, I do have some control (although that is not really the right word, I realize) over how much stress I put myself through, and how much stress I, in turn, put my family through.
So things are in motion, and things are beginning to accelerate.
And all I really need to do is say “Yes” to the next right thing.
