No, not moving from job to job.. Career to Career.. Just moving. Moving couches, moving kids, moving big slobbering (but lovable) bulldogs.
Even if your moving to someplace supposedly better, that may not be than your current digs it’s still tough. Furniture gets scratched, new stuff gets dinged before you get to use it.. new family and lifestyle patterns get reworked. There are unexpected problems and there are also unexpected pleasures. There are also many many many unexpected expenses and little in the way of cost savings unless that was explicitly the point of the move- for me it wasn’t, we needed more room.
I’ve just moved, and those words are a bit misleading. Moving is a process that lasts much longer than a single day of relocating furniture. So I’m moving.. We are in the new house but far from settled in. We need to finish parts of the house, there are several things that need to be purchased both big (lots of furniture) and small (faceplates for wall jacks).
I share this because it’s apart of my life and because I’ll bring it up again and again.. Also because it’s impacting my writing. I had to take about a month off from writing for the blog and writing the book. I’m just now getting started back. You may not have noticed this break because I planned for it and put together many posts to get auto posted ahead while I knew I would be otherwise engaged.
It should be interesting to see if the break was helpful or if it made my goals more difficult to achieve because of lost motivation and lost energy.
