Same, Same yet Different


My eldest graduated high school this week. She's almost 18.
She still lives at home and treading water, waiting for exam results.
Same, same but different.
Something is changing but we don't know what yet. There's no certainty. There's a plan, but we may have to scramble to a new one depending on the outcome of the HSC.
The mum things are still the same, but the freedom of an adult in the house is different.
The worry is the same, but it needs to be different.
The wall is still the same plain wall, yet suddenly changed completely reflecting the sunlight
Same, Same yet Different
As someone commented on the end of an era post, a chapter has closed. I need to focus on the excitement of a whole new book awaiting to be opened! For now life is like an aeroplane in a holding pattern waiting it's turn to land. It will happen, we just have to be patient.

  7. ...I've never been much at planning, things just seem to happen and I like it that way. LIVE!

  8. We spend so much of our lives in the In Between.
    For me, this always requires a level of patience beyond what I can drum up on my own.

  9. What a time of change. I liked that moment I became an adult in my parents eyes. There's a lot to go through. I hope the results come in good #StayClassyMama

  10. I lived at home with parents after having my first 2 children: it was strange to be an adult and a child all at once. Thanks for linking up with #globalblogging
