I said to my husband last night in bed, “Do you have a strange feeling that we’re in for some sudden and dramatic changes?”
“Yea, it kind of feels like our life is about to be tossed in a blender.”
A comforting way to put it, I thought. He’s really got a way with words. My Man has been toying with the idea of a major career change for some time now…. Is this where the feeling stems from? It’s hard to describe exactly what “this feeling” is. Is it the calm before a storm? I experienced that firsthand some years ago prior to evacuating our city ahead of a hurricane. The city was perfectly calm, the skies still…and yet it seemed that everyone was heading out–it was SURREAL. It wasn’t a panicky rush, not like people were trying to outrun a tidal wave…just a slow and steady line of cars heading northwest, knowing that a storm was coming, that tomorrow those same skies would be a torrent of rain and rage. But we’re not headed for a storm, certainly not a disaster…just change, maybe. And change can be a good thing just as it can be a bad thing. But the adjustment period can be a bit of a rocky road some times. I don’t know what lies down the road for us, but I do know that life is ever changing and unpredictable…and that I can’t shake this feeling.
