With only a few short days pressing down upon us before the Auction Crew and Moving Truck arrive, the deadline of having everything packed and in place presses more heavily upon us.

The inevitable looms and with it the pressure of having to do more than human effort should require. The demands, choices and decisions not only create the circumstance, but the will to accomplish what must be done.
It is not helpful to anticipate what awaits at the other end. Its demands and choices will nudge you into accomplishing what must be when the time comes.

Exhaustion notwithstanding the necessity of achievement will prevail.

Moving, under the best of circumstances, is almost never thought of fondly. Moving from one place to another is an exacting experience, emotionally, physically and logistically. It always involves you, almost without exception, in ways that are exhausting, exacting, and aggravating. Lifting, packing, sorting, discarding, disagreeing all enter into the equation. If, in addition, this is viewed as your last move, at least residentially, the decisions and dynamics carry with it even more implications and deliberations.

All of which means, undertaking a move, later in life, should be undertaken with as much care and thought as possible. Jumping into it is not advised. Working out the multiple issues which will arise will enable a smoother transition, less frustration, and more satisfaction.
