I was a skeptic at first, but these miracles work.

About a year ago, I took a class at work that was focused on "Personal Visioning". We were asked to write a few pages about where we wanted to be in one year, 3 years, 5 years.

One of my main goals was to be living in my own apartment within the year.

It's not exactly new...

















and it's not very big.

















But, it's all
mine.

The past two weeks have been a few of the most stressful weeks I can remember in the recent past, but when I laid in bed on Friday night, I breathed a huge sigh of relief.

I have a lot of work to do, putting things away, building things, making things, painting, but for now I'm just basking in the glow of being completely on my own.

And I really could not be any more at peace about it.

I remember when I got my first apartment. I agree, it is very exciting and you can't wait to start making it more you. :)

Living on your own is amazing! I lived by myself for a year in Boston before moving to NY and having to have roommates again but thankfully I'm moving back in on my own this week!

Congrats on being in your own place! Moving is stressful to say the least. I just moved to Istanbul, Turkey for the year. I am living with my brand new in-laws and husband, and tomorrow we are headed to our new apartment for move-in day. SUPER crazy stressful, but I am hoping to also breathe a huge sigh of relief just as you did!
