Remember that time you moved? Maybe even those several times?
Moving can be quite a hassle. The end result of having a new place to live in, with an endless supply of potential adventures and memories, is well worth it, but the process itself is a complicated ordeal.
Finding a new home, finalizing financial terms and issues and packing are all the easy parts of the job, if you compare those to the move, cleanup and unpacking.
As we all know, the whole process of moving, especially with young kids, is complicated, and very exciting.
Looking back at your moving memories, was there a moment of grace?
Were there acts of kindness, in the midst of boxes and trucks?
What was your island of sanity in the sea of lists of phone calls?
While many choose to look ahead to a completed job, it's ok to take a moment and enjoy the process. Most of the time you actually have no choice but to take a breather in the one free square of your future living room, sitting on the floor and just appreciating the parts of the tasks already completed.
And then, right when your breath is settled and your smile has found its way back to your face, the doorbell rings. You wonder who it can be, at this time, no one said they were coming, as affirmed by a quick glance at your locked phone screen.
You unlock the door to find someone who's whole intention is currently set on doing you good.
It might be someone close to you, or a new friend you haven't yet met. They're standing at your door with refreshments, prepared with you and your moving efforts in mind.
That moment of sheer appreciation, reminds you of how loving and caring this world can be. Unpacking and scrubbing tubs might be hard, but you know there are people who love you and want this job to be slightly easier for you.
Keeping those moments of kindness in mind is what takes us forward. We want to make others feel as good as we did at that very second, when we realized what a relief it is to be helped, even in the simplest way.
Since we know that moving is a heavy task, on the body and soul, we wanted to pitch in.
