My life has been different since the move back to NC. The biggest difference has been characterized by disconnection. There are some negative aspects of that, sure. But overall, I think it’s been a good thing.
Let me illustrate what I mean:
I’ve moved away from social media.
I no longer have “a ministry” I’m responsible for.
I’m near to family and a few local friends, but mostly, I’m disconnected from my deepest community.
But I’ve needed time to think. To process. To prepare before moving forward again. Time to breathe.
It feels unnatural, but it’s beginning to feel more normal. The good and bad thing is that I know this is a temporary phase. We are in a bit of a holding pattern.
I’m excited for what’s ahead – especially because I have no idea what that is. But I’m open and preparing.
I think we all need time for reflection.
