What I Do

« Anyone from Austin, TX? | Main | Gut Wrenching Truth About 1000Premieres »


I'm a pioneer that came from a settler family...

Moved to Columbus, OH 3 years ago. Not knowing a sole. Turned down 3 job offers elsewhere for more money.

If you live in a large city, you can be both a settler & a pioneer.

I've moved 4 times in the past year across 3 countries and 2 continents. I guess I'm a pioneer.

Although, sometimes I feel guilty or inadequate for being so.

Pioneer married to a settler.

Flipping TV Channels...interesting way to put it and I totally agree! There are times when I couldn't flip that channel fast enough but yes a Pioneer I am! 33 Years old and 20-something moves. Experiences certainly do shape a person!

i was born to a pioneer parents, but unless God says differently, it's looking like a settler life for my cowboys. we'll just travel a lot =)

Totally agree there! Did enough moving around with the oldest son. Staying put UNLESS something comes along that doesn't have a winter, is surrounded by lots of water and not in Florida. I'd be game for that!

I think I'm a settler, that wants to be a pioneer :)

I probably won't be happy to settle unless it's by a beach.

well, virginia beach is always here for you mitch =)

Ha! If it weren't for this promotion at work, I'd probably be on my way already, Ben.

Think we're going to come out next summer for our anniversary (10yrs! Woowoo!).

I always appreciate your POV on things.
This is what my wife and I are battling with. I love the idea of being a settler, but I know in my heart I'm a pioneer.

Pioneer at heart who is still amazed that I am settled here for so long. Like you I travel a lot out of state and country, so maybe that satisfies some of that pioneering spirit. My inward pioneer rages onward to new heights even though I have been settled here for 20 yrs :)

good thoughts on life.
I'm getting used to the "you don't sound like you're from Pennsylvania..." rhetorical question about my southern accent.

I'm a settler who sometimes sees it as a negative. Your post was a helpful point of view!

Definitely a pioneer. Most conversations I have with people that I've known a while start with, "So where do you live now?" I love the friends I've made over my life, most of them we can pick up exactly in the moment and spend time together as if we never parted. God has blessed with me with rich, life-long relationships.

Living in a large metropolitan area I suppose I'm a little of both. If you move or change jobs those relationships often fade. I grew up in a small town and sometimes miss that feeling that everybody knew everybody.

Grew up a settler and it's comforting to visit home but I've always known I am a pioneer. Luckily I'm married to another pioneer and enjoying our first international move together (we've both lived overseas before marriage). Both have advantages/disadvantages but personally I love meeting new people, experiencing new cultures and seeing new places.

18 years of marriage, 3 kids, and in January we'll be in our 4th state.Pioneers, who are hoping on settling down.

I am a pioneer who wishes I could be a settler, but there is just too much to see and do. Missing family is the hardest.
