Letโ€™s talk about endings. Iโ€™ve been feeling a bit emotional this weekโ€ฆ A few weeks ago, I told you guys about my first hoarder. Weโ€™ve actually been working with her since March and on her parentโ€™s house since the first week of April. This was the first big project that my company (it still feels weird to say that) has had, and the first time Abbie and I have worked closely together. So many firsts! And itโ€™s coming to a close. I think we will be working with this client more in the future, but we can see the light at the end of this tunnel.

Itโ€™s so bittersweetโ€ฆ on one hand, this project is a LOT. It was a lot of trash, thousands of boxes, countless (well, not so countless) hours of sorting piles and piles of โ€ฆ. stuff. There were definitely days that I didnโ€™t want to make the drive into Raleigh and even more times that I sat there staring at messy rooms trying not to cry, wondering if I took too much on. But now? As we clear out each room and organize piles for her to go through on her own time, I canโ€™t help but be a little sad. Every room we finish brings us closer to the endโ€ฆ to the day when we have to go to different houses every day and find a new park to have our lunch picnics.

Iโ€™ve learned so much from this job, about myself and what I want for Dandelion Smilesโ€™ future. I will forever be thankful for this experience, and as sad as I will be to say goodbye, Iโ€™m SO happy with this progress and for the opportunity to make a difference in this womanโ€™s life. So why talk about endings? This got me thinking a lot about past relationships, friendships, jobs, and experiences. I feel like every time something is going to end, I know at least a few weeks ahead of time and get this same sentimental feeling. I know it has to end and I know I will be better off when it does. I see the doors opening in front of meโ€ฆ but part of me just wants to stay, just a little longer, to feel all the feels and appreciate all the learning experiences.

I donโ€™t really know how to end this train of thought, but I wanted to share my feelings in case anyone else is feeling a similar way. What are you moving on from? What opportunities are you opening yourself to? What have you learned from these experiences? ๐Ÿ˜Š As always, if you take any fun pictures or videos, tag me on Instagram @SmileMakePeopleWonder and use the hashtag #DandelionSmiles.
