We moved into our new place at the end of the October. Even earlier than expected!
But the whirlwind of moving didn't even set in until I started trying to put together the puzzle pieces of life that had been put on hold.
Things are not all ideally put away, but we have lights, internet, stove, refrigerator, heat, water. All the things for living in a modern home.
And now I am trying to focus on living again instead of surviving.
I am still researching college. No easy decisions there.
Homeschool kind of waxes and wanes as routines have crumbled from a few months ago.
I am working on getting into exercising again, pursuing personal development, building skill sets, making priority daily Bible study and prayer. And here I am trying to write out my thoughts.
I am listening to a webinar highlighting the connecting of mind and body in health, weight loss, anxiety and depression. Not only the foods we are consuming but the thoughts of our mind affect our bodies' physical processes. Interesting.
What I can't get rid of is the stirring. The stirring to learn, to move, to go. But life says stand still now. Frustration sets in.
Taking care of our family's physical needs seems mundane, and yet, I know it is a blessing to have a family to care for.
We cannot have everything we want in this life.
It is difficult to decide what to hang on to, what to fight for, and what to let go.
I think I am going to go through the Make Over Your Mornings course by Crystal Paine that I had gone through at the beginning of this year.
I feel like I am trying to hit this physical and spiritual slump with everything I have and make it a restart and refresh in my life.
With God's help, I will make progress. Progress in discerning, wisdom and understanding. Progress in peace.
