As I wrote those words, I realized how much my life is about to change. I am afraid, naturally. I am excited, obviously. I am unsure, understandably. Change is never easy but it has to be taken on in order to grow. So that is what I am doing right now….growing!! I hope I come out the other side a better human being, because I sure could use the improvement.
I am sorry that the final part of my Epic Journey had to be postponed. I have had a lot of people tell me how much they were looking forward to reading about it. I hated to disappoint you!! As I have stated many times before, life just sort of stepped in and it has required that I act like an adult (much to my dismay) and do what I have to do right now. I will finish the journey and I hope to be blessed with other trips also.
Even though I have always tried to “change things up” by trying different jobs, going back to school, starting (and closing) my own businesses, as well as other things, I have basically always stayed where it was safe. I stepped out always with one foot still on solid ground. It worked for me for many years, but now I need to jump off the cliff and not rely on the safety of the past.
Here is to new beginnings, to flying without a net and to being open to the uncertainty of the present and the future. I have no idea where I am headed for sure; I do have some ideas but nothing is cast in stone just yet. Each new page on the calendar brings me another day closer a fresh start. Here is to change, may it bring the experience, understanding and knowledge I seek to be a better person.
