I am on a journey more interesting than any of which I have been on before. I have traveled extensively and internationally and have spent a good deal of time on self improvement.Parenthood though, is teaching me more about myself and the world around me than I imagined possible.
Together with my husband, I am making choices that surprise and enlighten me. My family is leaving the mainstream behind and creating a life free of unnecessary resistance.
Am I certain that all of our choices are correct? Nope. But Kris and I make each choice based on what is best for our family. And so far, we have trusted our intuition and it has been right on. Do I think every family has to make the same choices we have? Nope. But I bet you’d be surprised by the result if you did. At least we have been.
I am finding my family shift interesting, and I think you might too. I process things through writing and communicating with other people, so I hope that Pondering Jane will allow me these two personal necessities.
The only thing I ask of you, is to keep an open mind. I am shocked by some of the decisions we have made. And ultimately I am grateful that I gave them a chance instead of dismissing them. These surprising choices have changed the course of my children’s lives.
I will slowly migrate all of my old Personal Essays and Blog Entries to WordPress. But for now, you can access them here: www.ponderingjane.com.
For the next few months Pondering Jane will experience some transition while I determine that best permanent place for us. Ultimately, the address will return to its original: www.ponderingjane.com.
