Oh this is one wild and bumpy ride. Exotic and beautiful, strained and uncomfortable. Total freedom, joy, fear….all of it. Daily.
We are resisting the tide to fall back into a daily rhythm of doing and going, and becoming obligated and tied. It’s really hard. We seek connection yet at the same time, the biggest reason we came away was to find a rhythm that worked for each one of us individually, so that we could work together as a family to have a fully joy-full rounded life.
At the moment we are still trying to hit our stride, find the pace. It’s all good. We’re learning and growing and changing and re-learning and re-writing. It’s a dance.
One that we are realising still that there are no magic answers to. Nothing has changed, yet everything has. It’s so good to spend each day together. Along side that its becoming obvious where there is need and where changes need to start to happen.
Sometimes its uncomfortable. Boring. Exhausting. This daily dance. Even in beautiful Bali. It’s not a holiday, it’s a life change for us. To try and get things in place to get it right and make each day one worth getting out of bed for. Re-committing, re-learning, finding a story that works for us all. And most importantly that works for me and the husband together so that we can give these babies a solid frame on which to build their own selves.
We’ve got some great inspiration here through a few couples with children we have met. Families who seem a little further down the trail than us and its giving us so much food for thought.
We had a great last few days in Ubud playing the tourist as you’ll see in the photos below. A beautiful world full of the kindest smiles and hands to help.
Here are the highlights of those last few days…
