Life Style: On Rearranging the Furniture

~shopping but not buying...looking for a change~

Rearranging the furniture may be a symbol of  our life style. We like a change of scenery, a new restaurant and small changes that give us a fresh outlook on things. When we get bunchy or even cranky over things we do not control, small changes remind us that there is more than one way to look at things.

A friend and I were talking about our life here in our RV resort and how we came to the life style we live now. We talked about traveling in an RV, timeshare travel, visiting with family, buying and selling homes and finally the our park model and the 6 months we spend here in the desert.

When we talked about this 6 here/6 there life we are living now she said, "Oh, and that is when you decided that you wanted to do this forever!" My answer that we still have not decided what we want to do forever caught her of guard. I suppose it has been a surprise to me too. I did not imagine that this post-career part of my life would be filled with as much change as all the rest of my life. Even a life of no job or career has its ups and downs.

It has been pretty quiet here this week. That could be why I think I might rearrange the furniture. I need a change of perspective.

What do you do to give yourself a lift when you need a different way of looking at things?

  1. Having returned from two months in an Arizona park model to a big house loaded with possessions, I'm finding putting things in boxes for Goodwill is enormously satisfying. So far, the upstairs windowsills have been freed up.

  2. The window sills? That is wonderful. You will find that even donating books to the library is satisfying. The library provides the shelves and I go visit them there.


  3. I like rearranging furnitures and thing around the house and hide things we don't normally family hate me for that. Soon as I've rearrange everything, they knew full well that somethings are missing! :)

    Have a lovely weekend.
