This month on Every Mom’s Story Blog, you’ve been hearing from my friend Alexandra who currently resides with her family in Sweden. Below, enjoy her final post as she answers the question “Am I Settled?” If you missed her other posts this month, you can check them out via her Contributor Page: Alexandra Brown.
Can’t wait to share with you next week my plans for Summer!!! I can feel another road trip in my future!
So am I settled?
Did I finally find the home I was looking for, or in my case, will the grass always be greener on the other side? Well the truth is, I don’t know….
Both my husband and I find ourselves missing a lot of things from our past life in Portland and many times I wonder if in fact, we were happier there. But then I look at my children who are settled here now and I remind myself that I finally live close to my family, which is a big plus for me! But is it enough?
Without realizing it, I believe I got Americanized a long time ago and I am now finding myself in a situation where I am having a hard time adjusting to my own home country. So what does our future hold you might ask? As for now, only time will tell. We haven’t ruled out a move back to Portland and I am now letting life and faith guide us; hoping, that whatever we decide, it will be what is best for our family and our future!1
