What would happen if we gave up our large suburban home and traded it for a simpler home in the country on land
What would happen if I gave up my stressful, high paying job in exchange for living simpler
What would happen if the kids had more time in nature and the world, rather than behind a desk, computer, or TV screen
What would happen if we suddenly stopped juggling all the balls and just let them drop
What would happen if we had more time on our hands to fill as we wished
What would happen if we moved away from our tight knit family
What would happen if we moved away from our friends
What would happen if we stopped eating crap from the grocery stores and starting eating food we've grown and nourished with our own hands
What would happen if we moved far away from world class medical facilities
What would happen to my brain and psyche if I no longer was surrounded by coworkers
What would happen if we moved the kids away from their friends, their life, everything they've ever known
I worry that so much of our life is passing by while we check off each of our activities. I know that we are a happy family, that the kids are happy. We are all just very tired. Is the grass greener? Would we be happier? Would we be safer? Knowing that one of the best children's hospitals is within 30 miles is reassuring, especially since my little girl has been hospitalized twice in the last year for asthma. But would her symptoms abate in a healthier environment? How would I handle the lack of intellectual stimulation that comes with my job? We are surrounded by so many wonderful friends and all of our family. The kids love their school, their teachers, playing t-ball, taking swimming lessons, doing stuff with family. We live in a wonderful neighborhood with a lake and beautiful walking trails. Why do I feel like something is missing?
