Yesterday, I picked up the keys to my new house! It sounds so strange saying that, as I don't feel remotely old or responsible enough but nevertheless, I don't have time to think about that because it is and has to happen. Although I am not moving in for another month, I visited the place today with my Mum, meeting some of my new house mates and running necessary checks. 
There is so much to take in - bills, electric, water, money, insurance, emergencies - the information is overloading my brain before I have chance to take it in. Can I be 5 years old again?
But, I am reminded by my good friend Tanya's words, to 'Let it be' and embrace this new change. I know that everyone who is embarking on running a house for the first time is in the same boat, and does cope, but it's scary to think it's actually my turn. 
I actually think change and new beginnings/experiences are good for us a human beings. We learn so much by throwing ourselves into a situation and doing something new. Life would be boring if we continued to repeat the same, mundane and potentially negative cycle that we easily get ourselves into because change can be difficult. 
I am learning to accept and welcome change. I am beginning to love learning more about the world and the way we live. I told my Mum earlier, that life is just too short to let those demons hold you back. It is simply YOU stopping and doubting yourself and if you actually question those doubts, you (and I) actually see that there is no logical reason to. 
This new chapter begins when I move in properly, but I know there is a lot to sort and discuss prior to then. Either way, I plan to make this new page a positive experience.

Yay, exciting times! I'm sure it may get stressy and then but on the whole I bet it'll be loads of fun.

Ah, it's always very worrisome to begin with but it's actually not too bad when you get into the swing of things! You'll have a great time, I'm sure! x

I think all your worries are absolutely natural. I know I felt the same.. Remember that you're not alone in this though :)You always have a friend right here. Plus you have your housemates all in the same boat (well, house!). Trust in the process... In your words, life is indeed too short. x
