To New Beginnings

I have mentioned it so many times so I am sure you all know that I am moving. And it’s happening this weekend to be exact.

I am not moving far but it is a big move because we are going from our one bedroom starter granny flat into a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom granny flat. And it just so happens I have wanted to move into this exact place for a few years and now I am finally going to be calling it home in less than a week.

To be honest it’s all a bit emotional for me because I was starting to feel a bit left behind on the ladder of life. Everyone around me was starting to buy houses or move into bigger and better ones, grow their families, achieve big things and I was just sort of in the same spot – same house, same job, same routine, same, same, same.

Not that I am complaining because I am grateful for every little thing but I am not one to float around while everyone around me swims, I want to swim, I want to swim fast and far.

Our current flat was also starting to feel too small and I had lost a bit of interest in it. It also hindered our social life quite a bit because there just wasn’t space.

Maybe I am being dramatic or even naïve but I feel as though this move is the start of big changes. I am motivated to get my new place looking like the home I have always dreamt of. I am ready to kick ass at my job and move up. I want to continue working harder and harder on Kandidly Kerry and I want to tackle my finances like a boss so that I can do all the things I want to do.

The move has put a firecracker in my ass – I want to feel like this often, I want to feel excited about life and where it can take me, I want to try new things, I just want to live and stop getting into ruts or comfort zones.

Having passed my learners last weekend and now moving into a bigger home, and focusing more on my finances, I feel like I am adulting hard.

There is nothing like a fresh start to inspire more freshness. I am treating this move as a completely new beginning and I’m excited to see where this all goes.

As for you, this is your reminder to keep dreaming.

      I will definitely post a few pics and might do a blog post. It is going to be really bare at first but it’s exciting to be building it all up.

    I love the honesty….we all want to be swimming as well! We want to be the ones swimming faster than everybody…so people look at us and go: ‘Ooh I want to swim that fast!’…lol

    Sadly…I feel the same.. Expected to be at such a different space. Here, close to 40 my husband is looking to start a career again. I worry…will we be able to keep our home. So scary.

    Wishing you all the best with the move! Hopefully you’ll show us some pics of your new digs!
