Moving takes time, planning, and emotion. There is hard work getting the house ready to sell. It may be harder sorting, purging and packing.
Friends and neighbors may never be seen after the move. Take some time to say your farewells.
What no one talks about is the last step, the final goodbye that you need to say to your house.
The home you are leaving is a part of you... no matter if you’ve spent a few years or many decades.
Each room holds memories of people and events, happy times and maybe sad times.
This is a necessary step in the moving process. It is a way of getting emotional closure.
Take a few minutes in each room to think about the things that happened there and acknowledge them. You may cry or you may laugh. Go with your feelings and say your goodbyes.
It’s a kind of grieving and an emotional closure. You have invested so much in your home. Give yourself time to say goodbye. You may feel better and be able to move forward with comfort if you take time to say..
