change is the only constant

good morning darling friends! i hope you had a fantastic holiday. it’s absolutely silent here so i have a rare and treasured moment to come by and say hello. as usual the days are moving at the speed of light and trying to keep up is a full time job. i finally have the next few to myself and am looking forward to spending time with my computer which has been severely neglected!

before hitting the inbox i wanted to share a little of what’s going on. it’s been house hunters around here trying to find a new place asap as the construction is amping up outside my window. yesterday we saw what’s probably my favorite so far (above). the view is heaven but the apartment is beyond a fixer upper. i got spoiled having everything brand spanking new.   i’ll have to be an on the fly renovation on the wayyyy down low, changing faucets, bath stuff, even kitchen countertops.  the hardest part’s been disconnecting from my current apartment.  maybe it’s jumping into the unknown vs the comfort of familiarity. this should be an adventure so i have to get into it but i’m watching myself resist!

but i do believe we get what we need, even messages. i found this on pinterest and it’s my mantra for the day. even though i’m not sure what it says, it so doesn’t matter since there’s plenty of clearing and closing to be done.  hope you have a great day break through anything holding you back!

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves;  one life must die before we can enter another.

    Definitely what I am living by day to day, and teaching my sons to do the same. And, I absolutely love the Anatole France quote!

    Re Change.. and changing faucets, bath stuff, even kitchen countertops…

    How many politicians should it take to change a light bulb?

    How many citizens should be allowed to choose?
    Everyone. ;-)

    Everything will work out fine Claudia – once the leap is made then you’ll be glad mon amie! The view is fantastic!
    Take care!

    Claudia…you’ll make it work…..with that view you don’t need much…well, maybe only a bottle of champers and a bunch of roses.

    Change is always good although it might mascarade as something else. Be well. Mary

    Claudia its so true we get what we need. Ive had to move my whole shop into a warehouse for two weeks. I’m building a barn on my backyard and its two weeks behind. My landlord wouldn’t give me an extra two weeks even though he has no tenants and Ive also put up with a leaking building for over a year. Which is what pushed me to do what I’m doing and I will have an amazing shop and will be paying myself rent! Focus on what you want and it will present itself to you. If I hadn’t been in a leaking building I would still be renting and I may have never had the vision. The bad landlord just confirms I’m doing the right thing. :-)

    Beautiful quote. I adapt quite well to change & often even relish it but sometimes there’s a melancholy side…
