I wish to take a break from all the preparation we are making to sell our house.  Not just the physical work, but the anxiety in when we will sell our house, and where we will find a new one.  I have a house in mind that I love and am hoping it doesn’t get sold before we can buy it. 

It’s a strange feeling to leave the house you lived in for 28 years, but downsizing, simplifying and moving on is turning into such a freeing experience for me.  Just wish I had a break….I’ll just visualize taking that break when we move into our smaller place, with less “stuff”.  I’ll sit on the sofa, have a cup of tea, close my eyes and be truly thankful for where this journey has taken me.

This is an easy one!  My daughter and I spent yesterday scaping off wallpaper – getting our old house ready to be put on the market.  I wish, I wish I wish to be able sell our house and (without any glitches) move into the small ranch I fell in love with.  I don’t have any profound words today, or clever things to say.  My wish is simple.  To downsize, simplify and move on.

As you all know by now, I’m in the processes of decluttering my life – both materialisticly and emotionally.  We are in the process of trying to sell our house in this difficult market.  Note that I said house, not home.  So all our “stuff” went into the storage unit this weekend.  If only there was such a place for unwanted feelings and emotions….  We are downsizing, simplifying.  You get from the place where you own possessions, to where your possessions own you – a sign its time to make some changes.  I would delight in moving on – selling this “house” and replanting our home in that small ranch we found but can’t buy until we sell our present home.  There is a small stream in the back where I can plant flowers and watch them grow.  To feed the birds and animals that come to visit.  To sit in a big comfortable chair, unburdened by all the clutter (both kinds) in my life and just delight in being.  To breath a sigh of relief, surrounded comfort, surrounded by love I surprisingly find within myself.  To smile and utter a word of thankfulness.  The delight in simple things…these are the things I wish for.

Wow, what a flood of thoughts…  I can’t help but remember back, first day of school, brand new notebook without any writting in it or on it.  A blank slate, a story ready to be written.   A new beginning.  I remember that feeling…  I wish to begin anew starting today.  I wish that we move into that new house we saw for it represents a new beginning in my life, in rediscovering myself, in renewing old relationships.  To put behind me all the doubts, all the hurt, all the relationship damage…to start anew.  I wish not to rewrite my life, for that was last semester’s notebook, written in, tattered and used.  I wish to continue a new chapter, eagerly awaiting the voice of my Teacher, the voice of life itself ready with new lessons to be learned.  I sit quietly and listen….a new beginning.

Money. I’ve been told that it is the love of money, not money itself that is evil. I can’t say that I love money, but it sure does make life a lot easier. I’d like to have enough buy that little ranch I have my eye one, and to be comfortable and secure. And I’d really like to have TONS of money (always wish big) to help my friends and family so they can experience the same level of comfort I myself wish for. I would then reach out beyond my circle, to those in need. Simple. Honest. That’s it.
