My mom told me that one time. Seems she said someone long ago had said the same to her during an uncertain time in her life. My dad had accepted a new position in broadcasting, which would move them to a new town, where she had limited acquaintences. With four small children, she would be leaving behind her own mom and siblings.
I made a change this week. I decided to accept a new job, that puts me back in the fulltime workforce. I remember blogging here several years back, when I decided to stop working fulltime and step away from the pressures of management and responsibility. I needed to slow down, to breathe, to rest. I took a part time job, teaching as an adjunct faculty member at a local college and working with a domestic violence center.
Sometimes things run their course, right? Sometimes a time comes when you have to weigh out the options, the pros and cons, and make a decision; decisions based on need and on your heart's desires.
So...in a couple of weeks, I'll be back at it. It will be a change...new...different. Somehow I feel like I've just closed my eyes, held my breath, and jumped into the deep end of the pool.
But I know how to swim.
