It’s strange to me that I sit here today with a completely different mindset than on Sunday afternoon. Yesterday, I decided to go downtown for some shopping and also to visit some old friends. The idea of reconnecting with others really invigorated me and gave me a renewed outlook; plus, it didn’t hurt to hear their insight on my predicament from last Friday.
I realize now (and I’d known before but seemed to have forgotten) that….well, there’s always more than one way to get to a destination, a goal. It’s not always cut-and-dry, it’s not always easy. Nothing is easy in life–that’s what my family continues to say to me. But I should be grateful for all that has happened this year, both good and bad. I’ve learned a lot this year, maybe more than in previous years. I suppose it’s always like that: each new year brings along new lessons.
Now, the next step seems clearer than it did on Sunday. My first baby step is to get over my fear of change. It happens all the time (change). I need to learn to move with it instead of fight it.
