Golden Girls plus one – My move to Shared Housing

Reflections of my move to my shared housing in Asheville, NC

Most moves, especially in a short amount of space, take a toll emotionally, spiritually and physically on me. This one feels so different. Why? Because I am in the place with the people in a way that feels right for me now.

I have said to anyone who would listen, that I wanted to live like the Golden Girls for the last 20 plus years. The laughter, zest for life and camaraderie really has called to me. So much so that I have encouraged others with workshops and my work on Women FOR Living in Community.

How this wonderful arrangement came about is one of the parts of the story. While I was doing “my work” and sharing my passions with women at the workshops and other related work  I was also looking for my tribe, those who I would want to live with.

And I did. I knew it was the right situation with the right people. I just needed to take the leap of faith I tell others to do! I got a bit of a kick in the pants to assist me after a fall on my stairs on a snowy Christmas Day last year. No time like the present.

The opportunity for community, my own space within the house for me and my kitties, a new part of town and the structure of Dynamic Governance for organization and decision making and State of Grace for the working together. That is what allowed me leave the house I needed to sell and know this was the right move.

Then there are the wonderful people who live here. I knew all of them, through my work and passion of community. All wanted to live in community and were willing to make it work.

A dream come true. The details of my dream come true.

The Move

Monday, the move. Things were not going all that well. The truck was late, the guys were a little slow moving and “oh dear the truck is too small to fit everything!” Surprise! Oh dear.

Got things loaded in my car, all those breakable things. Turn it on…  not turning over.  EEEEK! Breathe.  Luckily my very present friend Vickie was there to talk me down.

The drama continued throughout the day. More than I could have  imagined!

There were angels along the way. My movers jumped the car. My NEW housemate Sherry, drove me to my mechanic and waited to see if the problem could be fixed with no hesitation.  My mechanic fixed the battery, with no charge.  Because of my new living situation I WAS NOT ALONE.  What a new experience!!  They were just there.

Everything got to the house in one piece. The kitties made it and are happy.

The best part! My housemates welcoming smiles, encouragement and hugs!!!!

You wonder who the plus one is?   Stay tuned.
