How to avoid daily panic attacks when planning a move across the country. Maybe I should rephrase that…How DO I avoid daily panic attacks when preparing to move across the country? I have been trying to deal with most panic attack inducing situations in logical ways such as, the minute shit is about to hit the fan, change the plan accordingly so its all back on track. Perhaps it would be easier to do if plans such as the availability of the movers did not change a week before they are coming, but I was able to call the pod people and reschedule the pick up to avoid loosing the ability to breath this morning. Then I have realized that the manic planner in me is about to get her ass kicked these next few weeks or even…months.
A very dear friend of mine made me take a break from packing last night and we were talking about my fear of not having a day job, a place to live, of having to do a fashion show with my possessions only 2 days out of the pod and basically being uncertain about everything beyond August 8th. He pointed out that in the past couple of years I had become certain about everything…and what I need most was a good dose of uncertainty to shake things up. I think he may be on to something, but oh how I hate it when he’s right.
