Moving on Up...

Just down the street

Moving on Up...

Moving is fun. It's exciting knowing that you're moving somewhere even if it's just moving to a new house. It's exciting just having something new.

But, you know what isn't exciting? Packing. No one likes packing. And unless you're Monica off of FRIENDS, you don't find any enjoyment out of it whatsoever.

Even if you don't have a lot to do, or you're just gonna take the easy way out and throw everything in trash bags, it's still a hassle to do.

Packing requires boxes, or trash bags if you're cheap and want to get it done in a timely manner like me, and they also reequire you to put things into those objects. So you have to find the time to pack?

Well, how is that supposed to be done? How are you supposed to find time to pack when you work 45+ hours a week? And then on your day off, you're running the errands that you couldn't do during the week because you were working.

So, how do you do it?

Well, that's the dilemma that I'm going to be faced with this week as well.

I need to pack, and it's technically my own fault because I've known this for a while at this point. Because of work, I'll have to wait until the last minute (which is usually how I like to my life for some odd reason) and then realize that there's so many more things that I have to pack and regret not starting before now.

Step 1. Acquire boxes.

Step 2. Put things into boxes and throw the rest of the items into my car.

Step 3. Rejoice at the fact that you have friends that can help you in this situation.

Step 4. Profit.

So happy packing everyone! Happy moving (because it's the of the year when everyone is moving to a new place because most leases start in August).

Happy trails and good luck!

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
