I’ve been going back and forth as to whether or not to write this post but it has been close to my heart all week so I have to be honest with you – this time of year we are now in is new and exciting, but it also brings a lot of changes to our family. And so it was a very emotional week for me. Our move not only includes a new house, but we’re moving out of the city we’ve been living in for ten years, a brand new school for kids, and a really whole new way of life. As much as I’m looking forward to the new path and the fun projects in the new house, I would be lying if I said that I am not nervous and at the same time a little sad.
Change has always been difficult for me. I am a creature of habit and find a lot of solace in the things I know. But this step challenges me to leave this comfort zone and take a new path. And I think what makes it so emotional for me is the fact that this step is not of a dislike for our current home. We’re only moving because we wanted more land and a rural lifestyle for our family. I’m grateful we got this, but damn it. That doesn’t make exiting any easier. And I have to admit that this place has been difficult to wrap up for the past few days. I am excited to see what lies ahead, but at the same time my heart aches for what we leave behind. And then my mind begins to wander – will we really love the new place? Will we like to live in the country? Will the kids like the new school?
I felt guilty for feeling this way, especially with so many exciting things going on in the new house. And then I see other people moving around so easily and I wish I could be like that too. What the fuck is wrong with me ?! But the truth is, change is hard on my heart. The emotional effects of movement are not easy for me, and instead of wishing those feelings away, I just need to acknowledge them and give myself some grace. Sure, it gets a little emotional and that’s fine. Embrace it, trust God to show the way, and move on to the next chapter.
I am sharing this today to encourage each of you who are also in a transition season. When you are going through some big changes in your life, I just want to let you know that you are not alone. And this will also pass. Before we know it, we’ll look back on that time and know that all of these changes have been for the best. We’ll be so grateful that we went to the other side through the unknown. xoxo
