I can only control myself.
I create my own happiness, only I can be in charge of seeking the joy for my own life.
I choose to be happy, to find peace, to be kind, to love, care, release the creative spirit, to give.
I maintain a calm space for myself.
I am moving at the end of the month to a different apartment and it is another shift for me. I am leaving Ballard and my little 1930's apartment building. It feels like it is time to grow and move on, and the timing is good. I've been in this spot for two years, and I am ready to explore more of Seattle. I am moving to a quiet neighborhood where I will have a garden and a patio.
Moving is stressful, but I am trying to calm my urge to freak out or shut down. Acupuncture, meditation, massage, my sweet kitty and lots of music are helping with this transition.
I will try to honor the voice inside of me that tells me when it is time to relax or to stop and find quiet.
When there is too much stimulation around me, it tires me, exhausts me and it's time to retreat.
I am grateful for the opportunity to learn so much about myself and the chance to honor my intuition.
