Well I’ve been quiet for a long time – I’ve been quite sick with a bad case (is there ever a good case?) of bronchitis. Anyway that’s not what this post is about.
It’s about adapting to change.
Our family is going through another one of those upheavals, and we’re all going to go through a big change by the end of the year. How we handle any change displays how resilient we are. This change is a location change, but it will still require careful handling with regard to our young child. It’ll be hardest for him to farewell his school and friends.
For me, I’m a rolling stone, I gather no moss, but friends along the way, and for once, we’re actually moving because of my partner’s career, and not my own. So I have to take a deep breath and go with the flow, and realise that for once my career aspirations need to take a back seat, while my partner gets time in the sun to shine.
For my partner, it will mean leaving all that is important, his guitar students, concert band, the schools he has taught at and most importantly the student’s who’s lives he has touched.
So we’ll all be taking deep breaths, and as we pack and unpack, realising that that most important thing for us all, is that we’re doing it together, as the little family that could.
