This was supposed to be a travel blog, Part 2

Life is hard and scary.  Bad things are going to happen.  Hard things are going to happen.  Something big, bad and scary is going to happen to you, guaranteed.  And once you start living your life in fear, it’s easy to find the next thing to be afraid of, and the next and the next, and so on.

Life has changed for us since that European adventure in 2018.  We’ve added two little ones to our family- we’re outnumbered 2 to 1.  Our kids are, let’s say, unique individuals,  and sometimes trying to accomplish anything feels like dragging a piano through quicksand, with all of the fighting, whining, kid politics, complex emotions, special needs and senseless destruction we have to deal with. 

It’s easy to feel like we’re spinning too many plates and there’s just no space for another plate.  But I think it’s the same as the fear thing.  When you get used to saying life is too hard or too busy or too whatever…you can always find the next thing to hold you back.  To convince you that your dreams are unreasonable, or imprudent, or too crazy for right now.  When then?
