Well it's been a long time coming but for those of you who don't already know my daughter has finally found a place to live in Boston so she can start school in the fall at MassArt.
.She will be living in Brookline in an old Victorian style house on the second floor with three other transfer students going to the same college. It is in a very beautiful residential area, a very safe area, and a very walkable area to the the bus and the T. I am feeling much less anxious. Now I can begin to think about how we are going to get all of her stuff there since the apartment is unfurnished.
Thank you go all of my wonderful spark friends and some who became friends along the way who offered advice and encouragement and offered so many suggestions. I have been stronger because of you. I have learned so much along the way. In my floundering blog I was so unsure of myself and of my abilities. I'ts amazing how much you learn when you are "thrown into the fire" It's empowering to know that if you set your mind to something you find strength in the process and your own ability to want to succeed. And to that end you just keep doing what you have to do to get the result you desire. So I learned the process of apartment hunting in a big city, I learned all about applications, guarantor forms, realtor fees, etc and I'm sure I still have more to learn. But doesn't this all sound very familiar?
Our spark journey is one of discovery and and strength in our desire to succeed. At times we do flounder because we are either unsure or "lost" or discouraged, but we keep going because we know what we want to achieve and once we start to see results for our efforts we are empowered to be that person we really want to be.
I felt somewhat "stupid" that I was so unfamiliar with the apartment hunting process. I felt at my age that that was something I should know, However, it just goes to prove that we are never to old to try something new. We are never too old to want to change to do something to make us better people. We are never too old to educate ourselves, to learn,
to grow, to be better than we ever were. Spark can help us be that person and we should never, never stop trying to be the best possible "me" that we can be!!
