I can’t explain how happy I am, I really don’t know how to put it into to words.
That’s pretty unusual for me.
I don’t think my issue was ever the life we lived, because I think we always had a great lifestyle. I think it was because I longed so hard to come home that I felt suspended.
Everything was temporary, and that’s no way to live. I felt like I had to suck the most out of everyday- which I know sounds wonderful- but it was actually really exhausting.
I never knew what tomorrow would bring. I had completely lost my inner sense of stability. Nothing was long term, so what did it really matter.
I tried, but that was how I felt and boy was it draining.
But now, I feel like I can relax. This is it, this is my endgame- Melbourne. Sure I have more goals I’d like to achieve in my future but my future is here.
You have no idea how great that feels.
Last week, we settled on a suburb. Oliver starts school on two years- so unless we completely hate it there it’s more than likely the suburb we’re going to, you know, live out our lives in.
For a navy wife, that’s a huge thing to say.
From all of this, my main lesson has been to follow your dreams. Just jump, it may not be what you expected- but it’s bound to be great!
Have you taken a big jump lately?
