Carry on… there are no changes to be seen here…..
I am no stranger to change. I change my hair color and length constantly, can’t decide on what I want to wear, never know what I want to eat… I can’t even stay satisfied with the names I give my secondary characters. Change and I know each other very well.
One of my shining characteristics used to be my adaptability. I say used to be because this year, I have noticed myself swimming upstream against the change for once. I have been off balance for the bulk of the year, instead of adapting to life as it changes, I have been fighting it every step of the way. I recently have come to terms that my life is changing and there is nothing I can do to stop those changes from occurring and little I can do to avoid them. The only thing I can do is embrace them into my life and stop stressing over them. I still haven’t struck that perfect balance and I’m certain I never will.
Despite the awkwardness of the all changes that have happened, this year has been great to my husband and me. My husband and I are like pearl divers, one person dives while the other stays above water and watches. It’s his turn to shine, while I stand guard and keep us on track. Our biggest and greatest change was my husband getting accepted into a Doctoral of Occupational Therapy program and set in motion an entirely different life of possibilities. Doors are being opened that I only dreamed of, now they are within arms reach of being a reality.
