It’s been almost exactly one year since we came back to the States. The re-integration has been an adjustment, and I’ll be honest, I feel like I say no more than any other time in my life. This has been purposeful, as I see what my life was like before leaving and it was absolutely nuts. I do not want “nuts” to define the way I live my life.
I want to be purposeful in creating the time and space needed to discover who it is that I am and who I have been created to be…not only for myself but for my family. Asking questions like I’ve listed down below has been helpful for me to think through as I continue to navigate what it means to live where I am today.
What am I doing today that brings life to my soul?
What activities are my children doing (and not doing) that forms and shapes them into the kind of adults they were created to be?
What are the choices we are making every hour, day, week, or month that bring light or darkness into the world?
What are some practices we have integrated into our lives that brings us closer together as a family?
