Time for another Currently post…
Preparing for: all the trips. Later today I leave for the Netherlands! I’m excited to return to my future home country (in my head, I become an expat there, and my Dutch is so good that I’m constantly mistaken for a local). Next week, I’ll be in London with Reality. I’ll be gone for two weeks, back in Boston for about a month, and then I’ll head back across the pond to visit Spain. I’m really taking full advantage of this unemployed life. More on that later.
Listening to: Kari Jobe’s rendition of Be Still My Soul. A few weeks ago, I had a terrible cold, and was bed-ridden for about a week. As I lay in my bed in pain, I had this obvious realization that I couldn’t DO anything to make myself feel better. It hurt to BE, and I had to just live in it. I’ve been learning to be still and rest in the pain, and it isn’t fun, but it’s so necessary.
Learning: besides the being still (see above), and my constant pursuit of learning the Dutch language, I’ve been learning what it looks like to be part of a small business. I’ve been helping out with Kaylyn’s company, True Vine Studio, and it’s been so fulfilling and lovely. Our new website launched today, which you can visit here.
