Even One Small Step

Taking even one small step toward something you desire is enormously powerful...Yikes...this is what I saw when I opened the garage from the outside yesterday morning...it was so overwhelming that I quickly shut the door and scurried back into the house...

The boxes are about 10 deep and stacked over my head...three to six high...on the left is my studio...see it behind the ladders...that's it...everything I need to create...

I was so undone when I opened the doors from this side that I just worked on the inside yesterday...

This morning when I started to work with this photo I noticed all the unpacked boxes in the middle...WOW...I have unpacked a lot of boxes...every box is a small step in the direction of my dream...

This beach house is my dream...a life dream...3 in a list of 5...YEAH!!!!! It is real...it is mine...boxes...paper...mess...and all....and I am making progress...

Although I didn't get any of the studio unpacked yesterday...I made great headway in other rooms...the library/music room is almost done....books are orderly on the shelves...family photographs proudly displayed on the piano...magazines situated...desk needs to be organized...

The great room is unpacked and the shelves filled...they will need to be decorated and arranged, but the things are on shelves...the furniture is in place...almost everything found a home...paintings are hung...dish network is running...

The dining room is unpacked...the Welsh dresser is displaying my blue and white collection...although I can't for the life of me remember how I had the things displayed in Georgia...why didn't I take a photo before it was packed???...

The kitchen and breakfast room are finished...even the curtains hung...the lanai is coming along...even though the movers managed to break my wrought iron chaise and loveseat...the fountain is most wonderful...

My bedroom/bath/closet are a mess...things everywhere...only the furniture is in the studio...the guest room is a mess also...and that garage!!!!!

It has suddenly become humorous to me...I have been running from one spot to another...working on this a little...working on that a little...I sort and shelve and stack and pitch...then I fall exhausted into bed...wake up and begin again...and slowly...very slowly...it is beginning to resemble a home...a cosy, French/Italian country home...ma petite maison...

Musette Giggles embraces the chuckles abounding in any situation...she sees the fun in the moment and expects good times ahead...that's why you never know what color her hair will be on any given day...she lives for the now...savors the fullness of every moment...and loves to recount the hilarity/ absurdity of even the smallest happening...She brings such life to the mundane...and she is very welcomed by me this week...

Today's aMUSEment - take a small step toward something you desire...look for the absurdity in your life today...find something to laugh about in even the most difficult moments...have a laugh for us both...

Great to read, I need to move soon and I fear the day when I need to pack all my art stuff and papers, but now it feels a wee bit lighter - I will try to look forward to the day when I can unpack all instead!

Isn't it a blessing when we can focus on what we have done, and not what needs to be done!
Moving is stressful isn't it.
I rememeber the first time we moved my husband asked me the next morning where were his ties....I pointed to the hundreds of boxes and said take your pick ;)
