PUSH GIRLS: Everyone hates moving

What a week on PUSH GIRLS! We got to see Chelsie hit the stage with her dad, and Mia finally moved out of her antiquated apartment and into some sweet new digs. But, as most of us know, the problem with moving is, well, the moving part. Everyone hates moving, because it’s a huge pain in the patootie, whether you’re seated or standing. But, as Mia herself reminded us, eventually everyone has to move on, and when you change something radical in your life, it can open up something new, too.

“Moving On” gave a taste of some of the complications of trying to move from a wheelchair; everything from packing to muscling furniture around can be that much more annoying. Mia wisely made the choice to ditch a lot of her old furniture and update it with something new, but even that turned out to be a bit of an adventure, as we saw when the push girls headed to the market to look for some cool pieces for her new house.

Push girls aren’t afraid to get creative when it comes to solving problems. See something cool at the flea market? Want it? Pick it up! You can always figure out how to get it home, even if you might need to do some strategizing first. I think we’ve all been there with the furniture item slightly too large for the car or, at least in my case, that really sweet armchair that just would not fit through the door, forcing me to return it with much regret.

But, as Mia said, the outcome of her big move was a feeling of pride of place and happiness in her new house. She finally had a place to invite her friends to, and it was wonderful to see them all toasting her success at the end of the episode. Moving to a new house can make you feel like a grownup, as Mia put it, in a way that few other things can do, and I’m excited for Mia because this was a big step for her.

Moving can also give you a fresh perspective on other things going on in your life, too; sometimes, as you start moving on, you find that there are other things that need to shift in your life as well, and you can start working on making some positive changes in the world around you. That big move can be the little push you need for a breakthrough. Who knows what the future will bring for Mia — but at least we know she’ll have a fun place to come home to every night!

Favorite quote, from Mia: “After four years, having a bathroom door that closes is a big deal to me.”

If you can’t stand up, stand out! PUSH GIRLS airs on Mondays at 10P.
