taking a leap....
Over the last few months this little family of mine have been discussing our soon to be change of life a lot. Almost daily, certainly littered with many many questions, what if's and I wonders. Husband and I are eagerly planning each stage, and also like excited children can't help our minds wandering off in the clouds with the endless possibilities that await us.
About a month ago, an urge to join our land sooner than planned really took hold. Perhaps it was the building progress or just the inability to get there as often as we liked that frustrated us. We're not sure, but it was uncanny that both of us were feeling the same way. The same want to move sooner. We spoke of obstacles in our way, of what changing plans would mean, of when the house was scheduled to be completed. We discussed it all, but it didn't dissipate our desire. Emotions are a powerful force.
The truth is our hearts had already packed their bags and moved to this town.
And so will we. We're taking a leap, and moving our family sooner. Come September we will re-locate our family with the kids joining the local community school and kinder for the end of year term before Summer holidays. We'll spend a few months living in our quaint but small holiday flat above the fish and chip shop in the main street. We'll enjoy daily visits to our land watching our home being built. The vegetable garden will be tended to each day, and be ready come Spring.
If I have brief moments of doubt, I simply remember we are following our hearts and it's leading us home.
Where does your heart reside? Is it where you live or somewhere else?
