It's All About the Change
It's All About the Change
48 days ago 11 comments Categories: Lifestyle Tags:

Several years ago-after Hurricane Sandy-my husband and I decided to apply for a grant, through N.Y. Rising, to raise our home above flood level.  After several years of applications, submissions of plans, costs etc. and a variance hearing, work is set to begin on our home tomorrow.

 

During the construction, the bottom level of our home will be obliterated and the top level will be raised over twelve feet in the air. Obviously, as a result, we have to move out of our home during the construction. Luckily, for us,  we were able to rent a home right across the street from our current home. The past three weeks have been spent moving our most needed belongings across the street and the furniture from our downstairs level upstairs.

 

What I am finding extremely  interesting about this adventure is how each member of our family is reacting to this temporary change. While most of the family, including myself, initially complained about the necessity of the move, some of us have accepted it and are even a bit excited about this short adventure.

 

Of course, for me, having a closet just for my shoes  in the master bedroom in the rental home has made the transition so much easier.

 

 

How do you respond to change? Can you accept it easily or do struggle with it and even battle against it?

    I prefer to adapt my circumstances to me.

    I zealously guard tradition.

    This is so interesting to me. Are your neighbors raising their homes as well?
    Change? It all depends, I resist, but come around. There is always a gift in the shift.
    I'm so impressed you are doing this around the "holidays."
    This is inspiring. Taking BIG action for a BIG change to support you and your loved ones. Very cool.

    It all depends on the change. Sometimes I love it and adapt quickly and willingly. In other instances, I'm 'kicking n screaming'...have to learn to accept the good along with the bad. "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference."

    It seems to me that if you have a shoe closetin the rental home you might want to move there permanently

    To be honest, I'm not a fan of change although I know that it is often for the better. And having a closet for your shoes certainly softens the change :)
