The Pursuit of Happiness – First Steps

My husband (Lord of Loyalty and Logic), my dog (Her Royal Fluffiness) and I have just moved into a new apartment … we have lived in so many now I’m starting to lose count. But finally after many years I think we feel like this new place is somewhere where we can fully relax and be ourselves. We don’t enjoy moving to different places all the time, but I guess in our pursuit for happiness and with life events the past apartments, units, houses, and town houses have just not worked out. It finally feels like we have a home not just a place to live.

Why?

It’s not a particularly spacious or grandeur home and to be perfectly straight it is almost identical to our last apartment, mainly because we moved from the one directly above us. But in the short time we have been here (around 3 weeks) we have already done so much to make it our home. Probably because we felt we could and comfortable enough to. Her Royal Fluffiness is definitely more relaxed, we have put pictures and photos on the walls from our travels, we have dotted memorabilia from different events in our lives and with the changes we have made (small as they are) to the layout of our furniture it has really made a huge difference. I know very little about the art of feng-shui, but I believe we totally have it happening at our new place!! Well, it’s working for us.touches in our new home

I won’t go into the boring detail of our problems with the last place but let’s just say from two weeks after we moved in we were aware that the place was on the market and from then on we never felt like we could completely move in. The majority of our belongings remained in boxes and although we were there for just under a year in the end, I think we always deep down felt very unsettled.
It was a big job moving on our own (with no removalists I mean) even though it was just down stairs. We did have the help of the Lord of Loyalty and Logic’s father for one day which was brilliant with getting all the large items moved. We hugely appreciated that! But then it was all the little things that you just don’t know what to do with. However because of the great experience we had already so seamlessly had with our brand new real estate agent, and I guess combined with our desperate want to just get out of the rut we felt we were in with the previous agents and landlord; we had this great air of determination to just do it and get it done. And we did!
But we are happy with our new dwelling with a slightly different outlook on the world, a lovely big courtyard for Her Royal Fluffiness to explore and play in and a bigger feeling of comfort and orderliness for the Lord of Loyalty and Logic and Me.

Our pursuit, however, will continue even with these small first steps.

Till next week in the pursuit of happiness.
