I’m going to be honest: today’s monday memo is a pep talk to me. we’re in the thick of packing and our whole place is a mess. every time I scan our living room, I can feel myself getting irritated about the absolute chaos, but I’ve been forcing myself to just let go because it can’t be helped. no matter how well prepared or organized you are, moving is chaotic. moving is messy. and really, why wouldn’t it be? you are packing up your whole life from one place to another – that’s not exactly a walk in the park. so I’m going to turn a blind eye to the current state of our apartment and will myself to just keep moving so that little by little, everything gets back in balance.
