Life has been full of twists and turns lately. We started our move from Washington, DC on 22 June when the movers arrived to start packing up our lives and we are just starting to feel settled into Providence, RI 3 weeks later. I am 3 days into a 10 month long internship with my Masters of Social Work. The work is exciting and I am getting such great insight to people, but wow is it challenging and hard to see. I have been exercising my listening skills a lot, which is great. However, I am finding it difficult to know when it is best to speak up and add a thought or two that would be helpful and meaningful. Now more than ever, I am leaning into the importance of staying grounded and present. Who knew it would be crazy hard to do that!
I am also trying to lean into not having my entire day filled with tasks and things to accomplish. Who knew it would be so hard to have down time! I suppose I am a typical 3 on the Enneagram. (Enneagram - look up the oldest personality test out there)
I just wanted to touch base on what is going on in my life right now, and I am hoping to take this to podcast soon. So fingers crossed I will start giving better and more frequent updates in the coming weeks.
