So 2017. What have you added to our Pleasant Chaos?
Battles – copious physcially exhausting, and mentally draining battles
You brought your A game to topple us, but Life, my old chum, you should know by now that I am tough. I am fierce. I am a fighter and I am more determined and strong willed than most you will meet, so here’s what I countered you with.
Travelling – lots of new places and experiences
A new home
The choice to home educate
Unburdening of commitments we didn’t NEED
Letting go of guilt
celebration on our terms
LIFE ON OUR TERMS
And guess what Life? Guess what 2017? We survived you. We lived. We laughed. We had fun. We may have cried along the way. We may have gotten overwhelmed at the weight of the journeys we endured, but we ended it smiling. We ended it happier, stronger and more united as a family. We take your adveristy and your struggle and we raise you a smile and a hug.
Hello 2018, we welcome you with positivity and wonder. We look forward to what you can offer us, and what we can offer you.
Let’s do this.
