Another sad day in my life but as always “I am Sad I Smile That’s My Life”!
Our youngest daughter and her partner are moving interstate – they left today on their adventure!
I am excited for them both + puppy dog – but at the same time ‘so sad’! The youngest of our children has left and I’ll need a plane to visit her from here on in.
Of our 4 children we have our eldest daughter close by, our son is overseas and 2 daughters interstate; wow your whole family dynamics just continues to change.
First comes girlfriends and boyfriends and they start to rely on others for support; then they want to move out, then move back in and maybe go again..! But this whole thing of moving overseas or interstate is a real tester, a gut wrenching feeling!
You worry about all the things you yourself would be concerned about; road trips, flights, accommodation, finding work and settling into a new city or town! Stability and money!
All things that have been the centre of your world, our ‘worry spots’ dont appear to have the same affect on the younger ones – they are actually quite brave……adventurous and trusting in their ability to make it work!
As much as I commend them, I as a mother and grandmother still hold very dear my values; that of owning a home, family, work and security! I wonder if that will ever change and will I maybe one day be able to say “I am out of here”, “come on let’s pack up and head off”?
I’d love to think I could do that and that I wont leave it too long to do – this is an amazing world and we all have the ability to do what we want and make things happen, change up our life, re-align our values or change them completely – this change is our own hands, I wonder if I will take it?
If you are an adventurer and left your stable life in your 50’s not knowing where your journey would lead to or end, I’d love to hear your story!
In honour of my baby girl you are an absolute adventurer….♥
Fiercely foul mouthed
Our young intelligent girl
Dreaming, beaming and beautiful
Courageous and bold
Setting off, travelling and won’t be told
Her family of three
Loving devoted and free
Spirited curious and driven
Off to the coast, warmth on her face
Beach life is her pace
