I have been in the midst of an emotional turmoil lately, which probably is not quite as dramatic as that sounds, but still, its making me emotionally exhausted.
This morning, after snuggling under bigger than me duvet and sleeping with every article of clothing I have (a bit of an exaggeration) to keep warm in those winter expectant Himalayas, I woke up had a sip of warm coffee and devoured three emails from you. Complete strangers thinking of me, updating me on their own plans and just sending me good thoughts.Â And in the end, if there is something I have discovered in my somewhat colorful life, it is that very little else brings as much satisfaction as having a community of people who give you love, support and acceptance. I felt all of that this morning and the warmth that built up inside of me trickles down my cold cheeks. This is the good kind of trickle, so dont go and worry about me now. I am not a crier and most of the tears I have left behind in my adult life have come about in moments of happiness. And movies. Yep, I am one of those.
Thank you. Thank you for coming along with me on this journey, for listening to my blabs, forgiving me the times when I dont fulfill my promises and for just being there. I dont know the vast majority of you, but I can assure you, you are an integral part of this trip.
Very special thank you to you three, I hope you know who you are. I am starting the day warm and fuzzy, if not a bit too emotional, but its better than just cold and full of coffee ;)
hello, just wanted to say i REALLY appreciate the raw honesty of your blog – there are so many travel blogs that only relate the most exciting/uplifting/amazing moments of their family travel and they often leave me feeling as though our family is not up for the trip we are planning next year as I know we will have emotional meltdowns, overwhelm, communication breakdowns etc etc amidst all the wonderful moments. Loving your blog and have passed it on to other homebirthing/attachment parenting/unschooling buddies to inspire their plans as well. Huge thanks again!
I’m “one of those” as well, I can’t imagine how cold it must be in the Himalayas, living in the tropical area of Australia I really cant comprehend it, so stay warm and enjoy.
You are always carried in our thoughts – no matter where you travel, no matter where we travel. Stay safe and rest well. xx
Thank you! Getting to know your family through your blog had been really inspiring for us… I really appreciate your candidness and truth-telling. Stay warm!
While I dont often get the time to post, you should know that I think about you, Mr. Blab and the kids quite often! Trust that I am loving every minute of this journey, almost as much as if I was really there!
