Our second immigration appointment is sixteen days away and I'm doing my best not to think of it. I've spent a lot of time pondering the changes that will take place in our lives in the next several months. We plan to move whether we're approved or not, it's just a matter of where.
I've been feeling very restless, like I'm searching for some sort of peace in my life. I recently started Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert and it's already had a deep affect on me. It follows a year of her life when she lived in Italy, India and Indonesia in search of inner peace after a tumultuous divorce. I clearly haven't had the divorce but my life has been tumultuous nonetheless. Knowing more change is on the way makes my already scattered thoughts bounce all over the place.
I feel like I need something in my life to keep me grounded so that I'll be ready for our next upheaval. Focusing more on writing, both in my journal and on my wip, has helped, but I haven't found the secret just yet.
What do you do to prepare yourself when big news is just around the corner?
