The Silver Lining of Moving
Moving is single-handedly the most stressful thing in your life, Right! And from my extensive experience in moving across the country a few times as well as local moves that just didn’t go right… nothing can truly prepare you for the disasters that happen on moving day including but not limited to; movers not showing up, walls mirrors and doors being scratched and broken, your elevator times getting tampered with, boxes with faulty bottoms.. the list goes on and on. The problem is the limitless amount of potential for disaster there seems to be. And that means a whole lot of STRESS.
So when I had to move last this past December 1st… I was so completely stressed out from the thought of moving that I was blind to everything that was going on around me.
First of all, the move came unexpectedly, LONG STORY, but needless to say I needed a new place… and FAST. So off I went with cardboard boxes in hand and enough bubble wrap to protect the pyramids. But what happened next was even greater than I could have imagined.
Friends came out of the woodwork to help me wrap glasses, pack boxes, clean and even supervise on the day of the move. And even though I hired movers, there is just something special about showing up the day of the move and making sure the budget moving company doesn’t steal, absolutely ALL of my belongings.
So after everything went awry with the move, (which, at this point I expected and was mildly prepared for) there again were friends from all over the place asking if they could help unpack, hang pictures or even just go through my closet. Obviously, I wouldn’t let them touch my clothes, but it’s the thought that counts.
Reconnecting with old friends is the best feeling in the world. Sometimes through an unexpected event, grows a tighter bond with people that actually mean something to you. You know what I remember about my move now? Hanging out with some of the coolest people I know, listening to great music and eating and drinking WAY too much pizza and beer. Gotta keep your volunteers happy right?
