Just Breathe!

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

Today is one of those days where my mind is off in fifty different directions.

Yesterday was a tough day at work. Lots of walking around, standing, wearing steel-toed boots. And while I ended up sore and tired at the end of the day, I was no where near as bad as I was 70+ pounds ago. I wasn't soaking in sweat; my feet didn't hurt that bad; my knees didn't kill me.

Today, though, I realized I needed to get on the ball with apartment searching if I wanted to move. And when I went to see what the price on the apartment complex I wanted was, my head nearly exploded. The price rose almost 400 dollars a month from what I wanted! After months of waiting for an apartment at the right time, now I would be paying top dollar! No thank you!

Between that and all the traveling for work I will be gearing up for in June, I panicked. I wasn't sure if I would even be able to move in June - and I was afraid my sister (who would be moving in with me, hence the need for a new apartment) wouldn't be happy.

I shouldn't have worried (when should we really?). She was more upset by the price hike and was A-OK with going back to the drawing board and starting our apartment search over.

So today, we both head over to check out a new apartment and hopefully get the move in motion. I got my fingers crossed it turns out good - it has the amenities my sister and I want. Sure, it's not the exact location we wanted, but it could be much worse.

I'm making an effort to breathe - to just tell my mind to shut up and stop worrying. Because it doesn't matter - everything will work out all right in the end. So take a moment and just breathe!

    I wish you the best of luck and hope you find a great apartment! I lived with my sister and her family for a short time and really enjoyed my time with them. Keep on breathing and smiling, I know it will work out just fine.
