Accentuate the Positive

Hello All! Let me begin by saying how blessed I am to be living and breathing today! I am so thankful for that.

I find myself currently in limbo. Between jobs, college and finding a new house. Haha, I’m sure up to my knickers in decisions. My life is somewhat chaotic right now. In chaotic times like these its a great reminder for me that I’m not in charge of my life God is. I have just been given this life.

Most certainly this is a challenging part of my life.

For challenging parts in life, I usually try and focus on the positive. Like that song, my kindergarten teacher taught us: You’ve gotta accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative latch on to the affirmative. Thank you for the positive energy Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters.

So with all the boxes and packing tape out, I’m feeling a bit successful. This is, of course, is only because of my organizing and packing nine boxes this morning. Everything is almost done, hurrah! I think I should definitely celebrate tonight… Brownies and Braveheart anyone?

This is my third time moving in my life. Not like moving countries or states or anything but still moving is moving. I may in the future have a lot more moving to do too, hopefully!

I’ve learned that labeling is crucial to the practice of moving. I found that my kitchen which took the most boxes. That may just be because of my ingredients… I have built quite the collection of spices and baking essentials. My kitchen boxes have a pink frill and red patterned apron ties hanging out of them.

Then to the bathroom which may take several boxes if you like makeup and hair accessories. It did for me at least. My bathroom is smaller so I was able to pack everything into one box nicely.

I will pack my bedroom tomorrow which surely will be quite the task… I hang all my dresses on hangers and poking holes in trash bags to cover. Which isn’t as nice as clear dress bags but I figure it works just the same. Since I only have three pairs of shoes it was easy for me to pack them in the bottom of the same box as my clothes.

One thing’s for sure with all this packing and stress of moving, I will get through this.  I just have to hum to myself, “You’ve gotta accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative…”
