Addicted to "the next big thing"
The past ten years have been pretty exciting. Graduating college, getting married, moving to a couple different states, graduating seminary, assisting in a church plant, having two babies... Life has been moving fast and the changes have come quickly. At times it felt overwhelming but I kind of liked it. There was always something to look forward to. Now we're settling down into a pretty predictable routine. There are no big changes on the horizon and I'm feeling a little antsy.
I'm sitting here wondering what's next. What "big thing" can I anticipate now? We're not having a baby or moving or starting exciting jobs. We're in a lull. Well, as much of a lull as you can be in with two toddlers in tow.
I'm trying to enjoy it but I'm addicted to that feeling you get when you know a big change is coming. But life isn't all about the exciting stuff, it's also about the inbetween stuff. The everyday. The ordinary. The simple moments.
So I'm enjoying this time we have now. I'm enjoying these quiet years and dreaming about what's to come when this season is over without allowing it to rule my life. I'm trying anyway. :-) Because really, this time is so sweet and special.
