It was very easy to start thinking about how this move was going to effect me. I immediately began to overwhelm myself with worries. Just the thought of having to find a new place to live, a new school for our daughter, put in for a transfer or find a new job, building a new network of friends and whatever else gave me anxiety. Mind you with this transition we would have to live apart temporarily! Creating these worries made me feel tired, stressed and angry. I slowly began to realize that one small negative thought would turn into a domino effect of negativity. Being a Debbie Downer was just way too exhausting considering it is usually not my style. I have always been Team "Good Vibes Only" but hey even positive people deserve to have a bad day. I had to change my perspective and see the potential in our move. I really needed to just trust the flow of my life and understand this opportunity was presented for a reason. I believe that God's plan is much bigger than I ever could have imagined. At the same time my husband and I had to sit down and have a serious conversation about the vision of our future. Finding the right balance can be challenging at times but it is achievable. I give some and he gives some. Balance has always been a strength of ours and we find it important to not loose sight of that. He understands and respects that it is important for me to pursue and accomplish my personal goals and have independence. I have to remind myself that I am capable of accomplishing all of my goals even when there are curve balls. I started to see the benefits pour in as soon as I opened my eyes. This was a huge decision for us to make and I can remember how nervous he was telling me the news. I'm so proud of him as my husband, as a father, as a professional and as a man. Watching him mature over the years has been so rewarding. He reminds me every day that we are capable of doing whatever we put our minds to. I am extremely thankful to have him as my partner and I must say he has made this transition as easy as possible. Every day he is there and I am here I miss him and the distance always reminds me how much I love him and enjoy being married to him.
