Constant Changes

2019 has been a busy year so far. One of my major goals for 2019 is to making writing a main focus.So far I have done good job of keeping that promise. Lately my writing had been limited to my notebooks and guided journals. I figured it was time to check in and write a few lines. There have been so many changes, and I am excited to share them.

Once again our life is going through changes. Every weekend since early December has been filled with the fun of moving. Work has been hectic as well, with 54 hour work weeks, and being placed in different classrooms everyday. Overall life has been very unsettled and tiring. Overall I am beginning to reevaluate what will make me happy.

We are moving from a large house into a small apartment. For many reasons, the house didn’t pan out. we could have made it work, but it was too high of a price. We would have spent the majority of our time working to swing it. Last year I overstayed at a job that harmed my mental health to pay the bills. My Husband and I were fighting about everything, and we realized that the house was not making us happy. We could have made it work, but we really didn’t want to. Keeping up with the bills meant giving up so much.

We would have had to give up our entire lifestyle to keep the house. We are a couple that enjoys travel, and being on the move. For a year we gave up our roaming lifestyle to do that. This led to many discussions and reevaluations. We have one life to live, and we do not want to waste it piling up possessions. We are looking to downsize, permanently.

Life turns in cycles. One of the biggest lessons I have learned is that change is the only constant. We cannot stop it, but we can learn to gracefully face it.We are thankful for our time at the house, but we are happy to move on. We are ready to cast off the responsibility of the house, and rediscover our nomadic side. I think that we will be happier this way, even if it unconventional. There are many paths to happiness, and I feel like we forget that. We are looking at this as a new beginning.

Till next time
