Still moving Girl on the Move - project me post 990

I'm on the other side !
Where is the other side, I'm sure a few of you are wondering?

So I lived with my ex and we lived with my mom. Then he moved on and it was just my mom and I. I always thought that I would be the one meeting someone and taking her with me, but it turned out that she met someone first and I had big decision to make. Because life never goes smoothly and choices are always coupled with challenged and fear, I was financially afraid to make huge decisions with so much indecision all around me.
In steps my oldest sister. The sister who it took the longest to get to know and build a solid relationship. But, she's here now and been my pillar of strength through this life changing time. After buckets of tears and all of my fears exposed, she jumped in with that emotionless (sort of a good thing) Gemini (aah, you know a few too!!) energy and pushed the drama aside while we figured out some logistics and rational solutions.

One thing that I have learned is that Madam Universe does make sure that there is support galore when life goes a awry and all we have to do is acknowledge it and accept it. I did just that ...
I have moved to the flat on my sister's property. I'm still living with my mom because it ended up that it wasn't time for her to move on like we all thought. Thank heaven's we made the plan B that we did ... and it has started off being a great one.

The flat is still in the process of being renovated and there are boxes piled to the ceiling, so we are staying in the house at the moment.

How are the cats, you ask?
Well, they are confined to the guest bedroom at the moment and are definitely not happy about not having a whole house to roam around in. I keep telling them that it's only a few more days, but it's taking much longer to get settled than I thought. At least our business is doing well enough for me to get the concept my business partner has been trying to teach me for years ... throw money at the problem. So I'm paying professionals to hang curtain, pictures ... you name it.

One thing I have learned (I think enough times in my life) is that I always end up doing things on my own, when I thought I wouldn't manage to. It has been tough going through the old house and finding so much stuff that my ex forgot to leave with. It's been that reminder of being single and not having that person to turn to make everything alright. Well, I do have that person to turn to ... me!!!

Still surrounded by about 40 boxes, but I'm really excited about the move. I get to grow up with my big sister and have my gorgeous twin nephews loving every moment of having me here. I haven't been settled in almost a year and I can the impact of it all ... my esteem has taken a knock, my eating has taken a nose dive into junk food hell, I feel skeptical about my faith in happily ever after and ... well, I'm ready for all that to change!

I'm 9 posts away from my 1 000th post and all I have been focusing on is what hasn't changed in nearly 4 years, but that's changing too. I can't even recognise myself and 90% of it is so positive. For a little while I was that person ... you know ... the one who focuses on the 10% and thinks life is cruel and my world is falling apart. You know that person, I'm sure.

Someone posted this and I wondered ... what if!! I somehow think Project Me  has taken me too far down to ever ...
