We have finally moved into our new home!! Not completely though – we still have half of our basement to sort out. Then we will donate, sell, throw out, and of course bring over to the new house, some things that are keepers. After 21 years I’m surprised at how much we accumulated.
I am very excited about this sewing room. It is full of light, storage and space.
The biggest surprise is how sad I have been feeling at times, even though I love our new home.
I remembered a piece of wisdom that a hairdresser once shared with me. Whenever a new client came to him, he would ask why they were coming to him. If the reply was something like; “I was unhappy or not getting what I liked or wanted,” with the previous hairdresser, he knew he had an excellent chance of making this new client happy.
If the client said something like, “We moved to New York City, and I need to find someone to do my hair. I miss my old hairdresser, but it’s really far away,” he knew the probability of making this new client happy was less than in the first scenario.
What this all means is that if your are leaving something behind that you didn’t like, were unsatisfied with, or made you unhappy, than you are going to be more open about “the new.” The probability of your liking “something new” that is replacing the old, is much greater.
If you are leaving something behind that you were happy with, but the circumstances were not dissatisfaction, you are more likely to feel sad or miss to some degree what you left behind, and not be so happy about anything new until you’ve embraced that change. Michael – thank you for those words of wisdom.
So I don’t have a lot of show and tell.
However, I did receive some new fabric from Massdrop which I’m excited to share with you. This Michael Miller fat quarter bundle designed by Laura Gunn
