“If you want to become full, let yourself be empty.”
- from the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu (Translation by Stephen Mitchell)
I am impatient; For Spring, for the city, for getting out of this subtle life-pause that we’re currently in. For the moment, everything is at a standstill. We’re waiting until the end of April to move to the city, there’s little point in moving earlier because our household goods wont arrive from Germany until then and we’d also like to be able to save up a little more money to go towards the general start up costs of moving to a new home. My in-laws have been so kind and patient with us as we stay in their home, getting our lives properly headed in a different direction.
Spring is as good a time as any for new beginnings, but I’m finding this pause before it to be quite difficult. I feel less creative and less inspired, two things that I know are affected more by my mindset than by our situation, but I’m not sure what I should be doing to fix it. By the time I work it out, I expect that the month we have left here will have passed and we will have already moved into our new home.
