I definitely prefer uncertainty! When things begin to become too routine I rock the boat just to shake things up. I can't live in one place too
long and I can't have the stability of a secure job and income (self-employed instead).
Most of my friends still live in the same area we grew up in. They married local people and their kids are now going to the same schools we did.
That would be my worst nightmare although sometimes I can see the appeal of routine but only for a few weeks and then I'd crave uncertainty again!
I've curbed my ways to a certain extent, since having my children. The most uncertain thing I've done since becoming a parent was to move the whole
family from England to Spain and that felt a bit like jumping off a cliff with a blindfold. We've stayed living in the same area so the kids stay at
the same schools but we're living in our 5th house in 6 years and looking to move again this spring!
In fact, we're even discussing moving to
another country next year after our eldest goes off doing volunteer work in Asia for 12 months. We're trying to fit our adventures in around the
kid's schooling and if we're going to up and leave then next year fits perfectly. No definite plans yet though - it'll probably be a last minute
Sometimes I do envy people who prefer security and certainty and I have tried to live that way but then I find myself rocking the boat again. It
annoys my mum who keeps telling me I'm getting too old to keep starting over (I'm only 40!).
The only thing that's certain in my life is that one day I'll die but until then I hope to pack in as many adventures as possible.
