A good clear-out
One of the good things about moving is that it forces you to have a jolly good clear-out of the accumulated detritus of life. I have been gradually moving through the house throwing away or donating items that we really don't need anymore. It is amazing how much stuff you keep simply because it is in the cupboard, out of sight. It isn't until you think about moving it to somewhere else that you realise that it's just taking up space.
It is a reminder to go through my interior life regularly as well. There are times when we need to let go of things that are not healthy for us or that we have outgrown. Things that have been stuffed into a cupboard and ignored need to be pulled out into the light and dealt with, ready for us to move on.
