I have just completed a major personal upgrade to a spacious, luxurious townhouse on the ocean. From my living room, my bedroom, and two terraces, I have a soothing view of the ocean on one side and a view of the intracoastal waterways on the other side.
But it hasn’t always been this way. Years ago I lived in a tiny studio apartment in Manhattan, NYC, which I loved and owned and decorated to represent me. And then I spent years moving around with my husband between Connecticut and New York, living quite well at times but never finding a real home. Next step, after taking an early retirement from my position as Professor of Health and Physical Education, I relocated to Florida where I had my counseling license. Since my husband needed to continue working in New York, we have established a long distance relationship.
Within one month of moving to Florida, I rented an apartment temporarily that reminded me of a New York City loft, one block from the ocean, in a very popular town with lots of restaurants and activity. This temporary rental lasted over 10 years. The original owner kept the building in tiptop shape and eventually sold it, and then the big hurricanes came, and the new owners did the minimum of repairs. Gradually, the building has been deteriorating until that day in the middle of June when the hallway ceiling collapsed outside the other apartment on my floor.
Since only a few days before this event, I had sent my notice that I was leaving, I saw the ceiling fiasco as a symbol and metaphor for my receptivity to success. Finally, after years of feeling a bit embarrassed, tolerating what was becoming increasingly intolerable, and ignoring the inevitable, I chose to upgrade my life for love.
I love myself. Why would I want to keep my favorite items stuffed in the back of my closet? Why would I not feel I deserve to live well?
I love my clients. Why would I not want my clients to feel totally comfortable? Why would I not want them to be proud to refer their friends to me in a beautiful location?
I love my friends. Why would I not want to have a comfortable environment to invite my friends over for a brunch, a dinner, or breakfast at Wimbledon? (I’m a tennis lover).
From the moment I lay down on the bed in my new bedroom, I went into the deepest meditation I have had in a long time. I was unable to meditate in that other apartment. The energy was not uplifting. I no longer belonged there and I stayed in my Comfort Zone, slowly stifling my full creative potential.
Upgrading your life can be scary. You take steps forward without knowing if the ground will support you or if you will fall on your face. But the alternative, sitting in quicksand which is slowly pulling you down, has to be worse. From the moment I stepped into my new apartment I have not stopped smiling and feeling total appreciation for my life.
