I’m in the midst of moving to a new apartment. I’ve been living my current apartment for 10 years. I moved here after a break in while living on the south side of Chicago. I came to a suburb looking for comfort and safety. Late last year I began thinking about moving. At first my goal was to find an apartment that had more amenities like a dishwasher and central air condition, and then after some car drama my focus shifted. I began looking at neighborhoods that would be closer to work and where I would not need a car.
I decided on the South Loop in Chicago. On New Year’s Eve, I told a dear friend I wanted to move to South Loop. It was the first time I put my intent out into the Universe.
In January, I began looking at apartments, and got sticker shock. I had been living in a small apartment without amenities and a good rental rate. The rental rates, application fees and more gave me sticker shock. I decided to put the move on hold until summer. And then late February, my landlord served me with a 30-day notice. I had to move. I went into an anxious crazy mode. Can I really do this? Can I afford it? What, where why?…..
I’m happy to report that I’m moving to South Loop on March 31st and as I type this post I realize that this move, this Spring transition is not of my doing, but the universe opening up and answering my prayers, desires and needs. It is also the universe pushing me forward. See in January, I said I wanted to move in March, then I pushed it back to summer, if it was up to me I’d probably still had been in my current apartment at the end of 2015. I’d also be sad, but find a way to justify my decision to stay.
But Divine Order and Harmony Reigns Supreme. This is God working in my life and blessing me despite my lack of faith and showing me that life is meant to move forward.
Everything happens for a reason. Last semester, I had a lovely student in my class. We often chatted during class sessions and shared of love of holistic health and beauty products. After the semester ended she took me out to dinner. During the conversation, I learned that she was a real estate agent. Guess who found my new apartment?
It’s really true, life is unfolding as it should, we just got to live and have faith.
I’m excited! My springtime goals are to get settled and decorate my new space then to focus on my career. My goal is also to get back out and date. It’s been two years since a relationship that broke my heart ended, it’s time to open my heart up and love again. I’m optimistic about meeting and dating good men and finding love again. And finally, after a winter season getting my health issues resolved, I’m excited about working out more and also practicing yoga more consistently.
What are your spring goals? Leave me a note in the comments and let’s keep each other motivated. I may even ask for dating advice. :-)
With you on your journey,
