I moved to a new city almost a year ago. Let me tell you, it has not been an easy journey. I moved right after the Covid craziness started getting a little slower. I moved away from my loved one, my friends and everything that made me feel comfortable.
The last 10 months have been a journey of trying to put together pieces of this new puzzle in order to make sense of my life here. I know it was my own conscious decision to move here and I am pretty happy with the reason why I made that decision but still in practical sense, things are a little out of place at times. Familiarity is gone, and I am trying make the unknown familiar and to find comfort in little things that brings me the sense of peace.
Moving to the new apartment has helped a great deal though. It is spacious and I don’t have to hear other people’s life sounds all the time. It is tranquil and it is my own space.
Getting used to these spaces that I spend so much time in has been what my daily routine consists of. Finding that perfect nook to read the books, figuring out where to place my record player and speakers so that the sound is perfect, finding out what decor makes my living room more cozy and my bedroom warmer, and adopting new plants and giving them a space so they can share my home, all these little pieces of puzzle makes my life worthwhile.
And I know that this process will go on and on and on…
