The Itch

Oct 26, 2020

Do you get the two-year itch?

An itch to switch things up. Maybe change jobs or move homes?

This seems to happen to me every 2 years.

I think it’s because for the past decade I’ve been moving in and out of places every two years.

That’s what your twenties are about. Trying new things, new careers, new homes, new lovers.

I’ve called this cabin home for two years now and I’ve been asking myself, what would it be like to stay?

To stay in one place for a long time. Or at least, longer than two years…

Would my home feel different? Or my sense of home?

Would it change around me? Would my sense of refuge deepen? Would I feel more settled? Would my sense of insecurity and instability calm down? Would I feel more rooted? Would I feel more seen? Would I feel more held?

I’m 30 now. A new decade, a new way of living. At least, it feels that way.

I still want to try new things, but do so while growing deep roots. Roots that are resilient, long, rich, and stable.

I love my home. Its beauty fills my spirit.

Thankful to call this cabin in the woods my home, my refuge.

    Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My website addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!

  19. Bonita

    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was
    wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with?

    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and
    I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.

    Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a fair price?

    Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!
