New House, New Resolve

Monday, September 05, 2011

It has been months since I posted. Sorting, packing and moving has taken up my time, along with thousands of decisions to be made along the way. Change for me is always challenging, and so it has been a stressful time. I am feeling like we are coming to the end of the transition, so hence finally a blog. It has not only been a change in location, but also a change in lifestyle. We spent several hours a week gardening, and now we only have a few key plants. Our gym is now from 30 to 50 minutes away depending on traffic. We've had a constant stream of company to help us celebrate our move to our new home, which usually involves eating - well actually always involves eating! So now that September is here, I can take a couple of moments to re-assess where I am, and what my goals should be now.

For one thing, I am wanting to change my name - Jubilada 2009. I'm not sure what I want to change it to, but I choose that name two years ago to celebrate my retirement from teaching. At the time I was studying Spanish for our trip to Argentina, and the idea that retirement was "jubilation" was a wonderful idea. But now I'm actually thinking more that I don't want to let retirement define me. So, that might be a first step.

I've been hovering near my goals for so long, but never quite reaching them. I was able to accomplish our move here and I know if I put my mind to it I can do it!

    Hi there!
    I just saw this post ~ I understand your dilemma about the name process
    I do love your Jubilada ... which could be about anything, right?
    Each day can have its own high point in which we can then be glad we were a positive addition in our own corner of the world!
    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are off to a fresh start this year!
