March 9, 2017 (day 9)
They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. And I greet you past my bedtime with reluctance and determination. Not sure what to say or write about….can I bow out of this bad idea?! And then I remember today was a good day. Productive. The gift of connection. A post meeting spin in the car like a newly licensed driver chatting with my sister. “Oh, I’m just driving around for a little bit since I don’t drive most days. Do you need anything at the store, Mom?!”
I flipped through my vault of iPhone photos taking up way too much memory or enough to land here. Well, I guess I could elaborate on this a bit. We are in the middle of a possible housing change, having rented for two years in this new place. The market is hot and things are moving. Going to open houses is a survival of the fittest exercise. Don’t look anyone in the eye. Which is SO NOT ME!
And tonight we land here on this May 20, 2015 shot from Logan Airport baggage claim area.
I was freaking out. 5 weeks to move and find our next nest. My husband picked me up to go on several appointments to find an apartment. Having a dog in Boston does not make matters easier. I walked down the moving sidewalk and took a big deep breath and asked for a sign. And as I came up and over the barrier, this billboard greeted me. ERASE ALL DOUBT. Easier said than done.
And that , for me, was enough. That billboard opened the door for the next possibility. A scavenger hunt of breadcrumbs which led me here to this place that has given me a solid foundation for whatever is next. Upstairs, downstairs, across town, or somewhere in between. The icing was that it was an Under Armour ad and the family who bought our house was moving to begin a new position with them.
A little wink and nod, I’ll take it.
Fast forward to today and once again, the message is clear. ERASE ALL DOUBT. All is well and already written.
Over and out,
