Quiet Day in Quebec

Posted by on 16 October 2010

It's Saturday and we're not traveling. We're settled in with Cristina, Fred and their children. Joel's on a call, I'm updating the blog, Cristina is making some food for a party tonight and Fred is outside playing with all the children. So it's a quiet day here in Quebec relaxing and enjoying ourselves.

So what's it like to be nomads so far? Well, we feel right at home here and Fred and Cristina have made us feel very welcome. Living a nomadic life is different. Yet as with everything in life, your attitude is what makes the difference. We tend to get used to things being a particular way and when they are different, we stress out about it. So I remember that every day is an adventure.

Several years ago when I was sick and in the hospital for four months, I learned that I could not control everything in my life. It was very different for me and yet I was forced to adjust. Looking back I'd say it was a lesson preparing me for this larger life adjustment.

I'm looking forward to many more days of adventure in life!

    I know we both have control issues (although *I* never actually applied for the position of General Manager of the Universe) and it's one of the challenges I'm excited about in this whole adventure.

    I'm going to have to sleep in a bed I don't own, eat food I didn't cook myself, and interact with other people's kids and listen to their music.

    In other words, I have to live like everyone else does, but I get to do it while having the greatest adventure of my life.

    Hard to complain about that.
