It's finally happening! After months and months of planning and coordinating, we're finally moving to a new city, and it couldn't have happened at a better time of the year.
Although we both love having a clean home, my wife and I both tend to let chores slide until we can't take it anymore, and then we finally break out the broom and make the apartment livable again. Packing all of our stuff has definitely uncovered a few areas that haven't seen daylight, never mind a dust pan, in an embarrassing amount of time, but getting rid of all the dirt and dog hair can be seriously cathartic.
Another thing that lined up suspiciously well with preparing for our move was Netflix putting out Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, which I immediately binged. I'm already a huge fan of throwing things away and passing off overstuffed bags of clothes to Goodwill, but Marie gave me an easy way to communicate to my wife how I wanted to evaluate every item before we packed it up. This move marks a huge transition for me personally, and I want to leave behind anything and everything that doesn't serve an immediate purpose or Spark Joy in either of us. It's incredible how thanking an item before putting it in the discard pile can ease the guilt we feel for ditching it.
Our move is the first week of May, and I'm proud of us for already having the majority of the apartment in boxes! There's still so much to do in preparation, but just feeling organized clears out the head space I need to manage it all.
So in honor of getting my life in order, organizing my piles of stuff and taking spring cleaning to the extreme, here's a tarot spread for April!
Use this spread for yourself, or order a reading here through the end of April!
