Neither my husband and I are risk takers. He is fond of his diary, lists and plans. I like the security that routine has created.
There is so much going on at the minute with our lives that we are both confused. We have the chance to make some massive changes but somehow neither of us seems prepared to do it. How do you do it? How do you say; ‘let’s just do this!’? Should one of us make a leap of faith and hope that the consequences are the positive ones we hope for? What if they aren’t?
I wonder if we had no children, we would be more willing to make a decision? I’m not sure. Neither of us have ever had a strong spontaneous streak. We have a life based on routine and order but should we? Should we just accept the status quo? I am sure the boys would take everything in their stride in the way they accept everything we do. I am in awe of families who sell everything, give up their jobs and just hit the road.
Right now I would love a crystal ball and the ability to see the future. The current outlook is confused. Paths lead in a 101 different directions and we don’t know which to choose.
