It’s been three weeks since my trip ended.
I was of course very hopeful that some of the things I’d learned about myself on the trip would carry over into real life.
I’m not naive enough to believe that everything would be rainbows and butterflies. I knew there would be struggles.
Overall though I’m pretty happy with how things are going. I have been able to be more social. I have made a few new friends. I even went to a town ice cream social. I didn’t sit in the main group but I was able to talk with people and even made plans to mountain bike with someone later this week. I am also more calm around my family and I’m able to let my kids be kids. Sometimes. I still have a hard time with random noise and I can’t handle chaos. But it’s a start.
I am branching out with my interests so that I don’t get burned out on any one thing.
Just some quick thoughts I wanted to write down.
