Moving: Fresh start or same shit, new pile?

Good day my love!

Its been a while since I've blogged, but to be fair, this bitch has been busy!! As some of you may or may not know I have recent;y moved! I posted once or twice on Facebook I believe...BUT to save time and your curiosity...yes, I did indeed move. With my sister and my man-friend to be exact. To make a long story short, he and I already lived together but my sister was drowning in brotherly love and needed to escape their clutches....thus forming the 3 some we have now (in a totally non sexual way).

So anyways..on to my point. I\ll give you some back round information first. I lived in my old apartment for about 5 years. 3.5 of those years was spent with someone else and after that amount of time, everything you look at can and will remind you of them...all the bullshittery and awfulness that it was (ok not THAT bad..but y'know). But then trying to move on with someone new in the place you had resided with the other person can sometimes be tough. Old memories creep in from time to time, and old habits that you created with that other person seem to never die..no matter how much you want to rid them.

Having said all that, this move has been one that was LONG over-due. You never realize how mentally/emotionally you can be attached to a place and once you are gone from it, its like a breath of clean fresh farm air! You see the mistakes of your past more clearly and this new place is a completely clean slate and basically a chance to start over again. For me, it was creating the relationship(s) that I've always wanted. Not just with my man, but with my sister too. Her and I have always been pretty close, but she is the one person who I don't think I could ever get sick of hanging out with. Some of my best times have been with her and I cannot express enough gratitude for being able to now live with her! As far as my man-friend, my old habits of "live with one-foot out the door" attitude died in that old apartment. This move made me realize how \i had been acting and how I needed to change it, in order to not repeat the mistakes of my past. (This was ALSO brought to my attention by my amazing friend, Carmelle..SHOUTOUT!!!)

So, to wrap it up...sometimes a change of address is all you need to change your life up. Leaving the mistakes of the past and old habits within the walls of that beautiful 15th floor apartment. We have only been here a few days, but I know that this is the fresh start that we ALL need.

Here's to fresh starts and new adventures...

Love, Laura xoxoxox
