Change can be tough ..
“The best thing you can do is the right thing; the next best thing you can do is the wrong thing; the worst thing you can do is nothing.” -Theodore Roosevelt
… Staying in the same place or situation or state of being in life, can be even more of a challenge.
We have had at least one significant change in the past couple weeks, one I’ve felt would make life easier on our daughter now for quite some time. We’ve gone from a 2-2-5 schedule to week on week off.
And while it’s only been two weeks, I can already feel the hectic schedule we’ve kept for almost 7 years dissipating into a more calm place and pace. I hope, for us all.
Last Tuesday night to celebrate (we have for now, one mid-week night visit), knowing homework was done, room was picked up, everything was together to head back to her dads and the dog all settled in after being fed and let out .. we went to a favorite neighborhood place for some pizza.
Since the start of our week together last Friday, the time has been wonderful. Relaxed. Great conversations are being had. Things are getting done that in the past it never felt we had adequate time to do. And at the very least, one really cool change has taken place, and it happened almost instantaneously for me.
To which I’ll write about …. in my next post.
