I’m packing for my 1 week vacation with The Spaniard and his family – Menorca here I come!
I am packing for the week after Menorca – travel with The Spaniard going somewhere – doing something – no idea. 🙂
AND I am packing the rest of my entire life in the following manner:
– Important enough that at some point you will make it over to Madrid.
– Important enough to store in the States because I can’t bear to part with you.
Everything else will either be:
– Sold: couch, bed, dresser etc…
– Given to Friends: half burnt candles, kitchen knife set etc…
– Given to a Women’s Shelter: Clothes, bedding, kitchen stuff, etc…
We all know how organized I am. How much I LOVE the free therapy that is cleaning out any closet or drawer. But seriously… this is whole new ball game. Part of it is so fun and freeing – who needs a thousand extension cords? But then there is this weird part. No, I don’t need that random mug from which I drink water in the morning… but I like it. I don’t want to get rid of it.
I am trying to be smart about the things that I am keeping. I think I am doing a good job of being practical, yet not giving away “my life” – you know?
Mostly I am just excited! There is so much to do. When I get back from this trip I will have 1 ½ weeks to be out of my condo! But I know it will all get done.
And let’s be honest. I AM MOVING TO SPAIN! Just writing that makes me smile and giggle. 🙂

I was talking to my mom yesterday afternoon about life and choices and chances etc… she said something that meant a lot to me. As it applies to my life she started talking about courage. I’ve never really thought of myself as “courageous” per se. But I guess if I never had the courage to make the really hard decisions… the unpopular, uneasy, grief filled leaps into the blue oblivion of “I want something more” I wouldn’t be moving to Spain! I would never have met The Spainard and I would never have known the peace that I feel right now. However scary and uncertain at times… it is perfect in it’s peace.
I receive emails from the Universe. Notes from the Universe. These in particular inspire me.
Please tell anyone who wants to know that a dream not followed by consistent action, however humble or small the actions may be, points to either a huge contradiction or a gigantic misunderstanding.
Because when people get clear and realize just how powerful they truly are, wild horses can’t stop them from taking even the humblest of baby steps, everyday.
Yes! You can have more than you now want, bigger than before, faster than you can even ask!!
It’s just not going to visualize itself.
