So, we’ve begun this new adventure in our life–moving our family to Africa–but we don’t have a set departure date, and that makes us feel like we are living in limbo.
A few years ago, during my graduate school days, I took a course on the process of change. It discussed how we as a society are so uncomfortable with being in a change…we push to get to the next stage, or feel comfortable again. As a family, we’re in the middle of “the change”, that really scary, uneasy place, and I am telling myself (and whoever will listen, like Ian) to just sit in the moment and appreciate how it develops our character.
Hmmm, guess that is a bit deep for a first blog post. I’ll try to keep them lighter in the future!
