One foot

One foot

One thing this big move is teaching me…You have to do what is in front on you, the next thing. Some situations are so large that worrying actually makes no sense.

Of course I’m concerned how Em will weather the move.

Of course I’m concerned about will we find a good place to live with our kitties and a good school for Em. Of course I’m concerned about making friends, having a tribe (I’m a bit of a hermit, but I have ended up with a pretty understanding and loving tribe here in Fayetteville). Of course I’m concerned about how quickly our house will sell and at what price.

Right now, I have to make sure we eat (most of the time at home, but eating out is happening more as there is just so much to do) , that the improvements get completed (and I’m doing a lot of the cleaning and painting of lesser things myself) and as much stuff as possible gets packed.Those other things are so very large–all I can do is research and then wait until we get to each of those bridges. Sometimes it keeps me up. Mostly I can put it aside and just do the next thing.

Because really what is the choice? One foot in front of the other (I know it’s cheesy, but it’s true…)

If you want to change your directiononefoot
If your time of life is at hand
Well don’t be the rule be the exception
A good way to start is to stand

Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking ‘cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door
