Wishing For…

Today’s writing prompt is: If you could change one thing about your life right now, what would it be?

Just one? Whining is not the answer to this question, although I do feel like a whiny brat saying that anything needs improvement because life isn’t so bad. But they asked, so here it goes.

If I could change one thing about my life right now, it would be to feel more permanent. We’ve been in limbo since before our wedding, and we are slowly leveling out, but if we knew where we will be for the next two years, even, that would be an improvement on where we are now. Right now, besides clothing and our laptops, basically everything is in storage, waiting for a home to be put to use in. We’re not allowed to decorate. We didn’t choose any of our furniture. It seems to be a silly thing to be upset over. But I don’t feel like I’m at home. And I just want to feel like we’ve started life together. I feel like we’re being held back. I wish we could move forward in our home, in our place, no matter how small or how old, apartment or house, but ours.

I’m trying to be patient, and I’m really thankful that we could find a place that allowed us the flexibility we need right now. But it could be better. And I blame Pinterest for all the great home decor ideas that are making me yearn for one now.

Is there anything that you would change about your life right now? Are you in a state of limbo as well?

  1. You’re not alone. I don’t know whether I’ll be well enough to return to my thesis in January or have to find a new direction for my life. I’ve been off sick for over a year. If I could change anything I would want to be healthy and have lots of energy!

    As for your home situation, you could try fabric throws, they can change the look and colour of furniture easily, cheaply and reversibly. Also if your walls are very dull, get some cheap plywood or thin mdf and paint it or cover it in fabric, lean it against the wall and stick posters to it. Change a lampshade and then change it back before you leave. Good luck with it 🙂
