A very hectic week as it is always getting ready to go back to Philadelphia and actually packing up and making the 2 day drive. The difference this year however is that I wasn’t really stressed out by the whole ordeal. I noticed that I actually got far more accomplished but with very little if any angst. As I mentioned on our tribe call this week, it doesn’t have to be stressful, it’s just a matter of getting things done. I truly love being the doer and also the observer. I ‘ve also discovered how much better I am at receiving feedback from my wife and not being defensive. I am appreciating her and loving her even more. Our packing and organizing to leave seemed so much more collaborative than in previous years which meant that there was not the former tension that I had felt between us in the past. This is a welcome shift in energy.
I’ll be interested to see how I react to going thru many of our family rituals around Christmas which in the past I have had a real problem with because it seems like groundhog day again and again. I will finish this thought next week after having seen how it goes and how I do with it. I am very positive about enjoying the experience fully.
Merry Christmas and Love to all.
