There's something about moving house. A time where you rifle through old belongings, sorting, boxing, organising; a time where you let go of the old and open your mind to the new.
I, like many others, take the time to throw away things that I no longer need. It's unsettling at first, like any change that life gives us. We don't realise how much of a cognitive drain it is to sort through and throw away those old things. But you know, deep down, you don't need these old belongings anymore. There's no need to hold on; it's now time to only take with you what you need, ready for this new chapter. Your new home.
Which has led me to think: Just like when moving house where we chose what to box up, take and what to leave and discard, through our whole life we are faced with paths and choices.
Every day we are choosing. What do you chose?
What thoughts and feelings does moving house stir up for you?
As the move-in date of our new beachside retreat moves ever closer, I find myself spending an increasing amount of time on Pinterest, gathering inspiration for our upcoming renovations!
This week, I'm captivated by dark walls and the sense of calm they bring to an interior space.
