We are hitting a rhythm now, a day on of working and schooling, and a day off to explore the island. Our latest adventure took in a beautiful waterfall and then a butterfly farm where we learnt so much about the natural life and flora and fauna around here in the tropics.
The dust of change is slowly settling, and everyone’s needs are slowly surfacing again now life starts to resume a little more like normal.
I am so aware that this trip is to help us shift our entire lifestyle – to work things out and come home with a new foundation. Something solid that actually works for us. As a family, as individuals and as a couple.
So many things have become hidden or burnt in the fires of the last few years – we are ready to start sifting out those precious bits left behind and use them as pillars to build again.
Theres a lot of talking going on – good talking. New plans, dreams. But most of all just actually living in the moment and talking about each day being time that we have loved and enjoyed. No more future waits. Our life is happening now and these are the moments we’ll remember.
I’m carving some time out for myself – every few days just a simple walk to the coffee shop alone or along to the rice terraces to take in the view. To gain some perspective. To breathe. To remember me again.
Life is turning on but we are standing still for a while to re-write the map.
