"Rather than downsizing, let's talk about "clearing" and "composing." As we excavate the layers of our former life, we must clear a space, by getting rid of the baggage that has weighed us down—physically, emotionally and spiritually—for too long. We must also discover the creative process that allows us to feel empowered; that makes good use of our accumulated experience; our hard earned wisdom; that harvests our memories of pleasure, fulfillment, and joy".  How to Think About Downsizing Your Life -SARA LAWRENCE-LIGHTFOOT

Regarding the work of Smooth Transitions at the home of my father...we are most pleased with the work done...being out-of-town put us at such a disadvantage. Both realtors commented on your quality work at the closing

About Me

Hi! I'm Ruth Christian owner of Smooth Transitions South Sound and a logistics "lifer" so to speak. My professional background spans over 35 years managing the movement of goods for the largest and most highly recognized retail companies in the world. I'm also passionate about community involvement and helping those in need. When the opportunity arrived to evaluate my next career move, I deeply reflected on my time spent in the logistics industry as well as where I was in my personal life. I was strongly urged from within to transition my focus and follow my passion for helping others with the experience and talents that I had developed over the years. Joining the Smooth Transitions family of logistics professionals has allowed me to blend my professional experience with my personal passions to help the overwhelmed to overcome. My entire career had revolved around moving boxes until I found a way to move lives!
