Hello Jamie-

I (we) have been struggling with how to turn things in a more positive direction and ease the challenges we face as a family without sacrificing our unity or my or my husband´s career fulfillment/satisfaction too severely.

Thank you, in advance, for your time, energy and insight.

Sarah

Hi Sarah,
I'm sorry about the many challenges you are dealing with.
Right now on this Earth there is so much change happening. It's for the better, but for people that are feeling the pull strongly and are having their lives sometimes flipped upside down, it doesn't always feel for the better.
You are being called to fulfill dreams and live out passions.
One thing that is coming up for me right now is that I'm not feeling that you are loving where you currently live. I'm not sure if that's the actual region, or just the neighborhood or house. But location is important right now, so do what you need to be be somewhere that you want to be.
Also, I'm sensing there are some familail issues surrounding you all. It feels like some intrusion from your husbands family. Possibly a sticky in law situation. I feel that they mean well, but they are old fashioned and have a very specific way of doing things and it doesn't really flow with how you are doing things. I really encourage you and your husband to find strong boundries and keep them firm...but continue to be loving as you are.

I hope this is the confirmation you need to move in the direction that you need too. Thanks for your question.

Hi Jamie-

Thank you very much for your response - it all rings true...

I am not sure if the responses appear as you, yourself, write them, but a minute or 2 before I received the message, I had this overwhelming urge to write to my brother and tell him that I appreciate everything he has done for me/us, that I love him very much and we would always be here for him, when I know it seems he is always the one who has to be there for eveyone else. There was a recent conflict ("sticky" is a good word) - and although my brother is more old-fashioned and difficult about things at times, we feel the conflicting energy is coming more from the in-law side (his wife). My husband and I have decided to stay firm on our decision to remove ourselves from the situation, but my overall feeling was that I needed to communicate "love" to my brother, not animosity.

We moved abroad about 4 3/4 years ago and it has been tough - for me - for us - for various reasons. We constantly struggle with whether to stay or to go - and it is not a simple desicion. We are doing what we can to keep it together, be patient and move forward wisely.

Thank you, again, and I wish you a wonderful day :-)
