So… I think the decision is made that we are moving to the country. Which property we end up at is still to be determined, but the decision to relocate is pretty much made. I asked Jon yesterday if I could blog about it, because I knew that somehow once I wrote out all the pros and cons and made them public, and heard the response (positive and negative), my true feelings would rise to the surface. That is some sort of personality thing I remember learning about in myers-briggs tests. I have to mentally battle through something and even hear criticism (not that you guys criticized! At all! I loved both the encouragement and advice! Both were very valid and helpful!) before I can embrace it.
I actually read on another blog like 5 minutes ago about changing the world – that at some point you have to step out from comfortable, safe, predictable and into unknown, unseen, and different. And that’s what this move is about… changing our family’s world, our family’s culture. There is risk involved in every change, but I don’t want to let fear keep us from missing out on what could be incredible, or hold us back from building the lifestyle that we want for our kids.
I know moving to some is not nearly this dramatic, but in our little world it feels like a big deal. Can’t wait to find out where we will end up! The possibilities are fun to consider now that my heart feels free to do so!
