Transition Lessons: Fall 2020
There’s a book on my to-read list called Life is in the Transitions. I figure the author might have some good advice as I seem to be always in transition. Do you ever feel the same way? Life is changing whether we like it or not. It might be our choice. We change jobs or move to a new location. Or it might not be our choice. For example, the pandemic has forced changes on everyone whether we like it or not. Maybe you didn’t expect to be schooling your children at home or are trying to figure out how to do your job online. The transition might be a happy one such as a marriage or a sad one as adjusting to living without a loved one who has died.
Since transitioning back to the states at the end of July, I feel like my learning has about maxed out. Between adjusting to living in the states again, learning technology for online teaching, and living in a RV full-time, I am a constant state of learning. Some days I think I’ve got this. Other days, I feel behind the curve wondering if I can even score a passing grade. In spite of all the craziness, these last few months have been a blessing for us. We have reconnected with friends, seen God’s provision in housing and jobs, and enjoyed the beauty of creation. Along the way, I have learned a few lessons. Some are observations. Some are fun. Some are just lessons.
1. “You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.” Joe Sabah
2. Living in an RV reminds me of living overseas.
3. To hold onto truth in this uncertain time
4. Just because I am in America, doesn’t mean that things are easier.
5. Do your HW
6. Getting up early to go hiking is worth it.
What are some lessons you have learned this month?
