Moving On

Today, yet again, I started packing up my life. After about 30 minutes frentic clothes throwing I´ve decided that I deserve a break and it´s time to write a post about this whole process. 

I´m feeling all kinds of emotional today... sad, excited, happy, disappointed... everything rolled into one big emotional dumpling which is not so easy to swallow. I´m looking forward to moving to Barcelona more than I could ever tell you but I´m also kinda sad and nostalgic that I´m closing this Berlin chapter of my life. So many things happened in the past 5 years... new friends, new loves, new jobs, new passions... and even though I´ve never been in love with Berlin I´ll surely miss it!

You´d think that I´m a pro in packing by now considering that I´ve moved more than 20 times in the last 10 years but I tell ya... it never gets easier.. all the stuff I have is overwhelming! Sometimes I just wanna throw everything out, pack one suitcase and start really living like a gypsy.... 

Anyway, five massive moving boxes are calling my name so I better get back to them.

Just wanted to say thank you again for all your love and support. It was wonderful reading your comments on my changes post and I was surprised to see how many of you are going through a similar, difficult time in your lives... to all of you.... this is for you!!! Stay positive! Good things are coming your way! I know that my life will turn upside down in Barcelona but I also know that it will be wonderful! I CANNOT WAIT!!! ONE WEEK!

awww... i totally know what you mean about trying to move on, knowing that it will be good for you, but hard to let the past go.

And don't even get me started on the whole packing process! Ugh, i get a mental block just thinking about it.

You inspired me to count how many times I've moved in the last ten years (surprised I hadn't counted sooner). Anyway, I'm close behind you at 18 times! Makes me tired just thinking about it..

Well, wish you the best!! Barcelona is SO A-MAZING!!! :-)

XO,

LOVE IT!!!! So happy and excited for you! Very inspirational. I'm glad you can write from the heart, it's been very hard for me to the past few months, knowing He and his family are reading... especially after I was called a "gypsy heart" too. I threw everything out, except what could fit in my car with my kitty to drove 5 days from FL to CA. I hear ya sister, and here with you every step of the way! Good things to come... keep being true to yourself. I'm sooo optimistic too!

Moving is rough. I moved in with my boyfriend at the beginning of Sept and we are still not fully unpacked. Sigh! Stay positive and take it step by step... you'll get there!

Kathryn said...

New reader/follower here. Totally understand. I'm having the same problem currently and am selling most of my clothes online because I am SO, SO SICK of being surrounded by them. When you get older, less is more!

This is my first visit to your blog and I can't wait to read all about your traveling adventures! How cool that you have lived in so many different places. I completely know the feeling of being excited yet sad about change -- I'm going through a few transitions right now. It'll all be good in the end though!

All the best in Barcelona!
