new world

last week rang in a couple of big changes. i accepted a new position in community outreach for a local hepc education and advocacy organization. i also ended a recently rekindled work relationship which seemed instantly a bad idea. it is a new world i will be swimming in once august is in full swing.

i feel very blesed to be where i am at in my life. i made a change in my career without a full plan and then a plan emerged- actually a couple of plans. this seems more than a blessing to me. it seems supportive. and it all seems a delicious adventure.

i will be travelling to michigan to spend time with friends at the lake and take a proper vacation. i will cook, get some sun, catch up on reading, and giggle as often as i can.

a friend posted this mix and i am going to listen to it during my workout today.  he is in the process of major change in his life as well. somehow it feels like getting a hug from him- so ruben- have a hug from me!

  1. In his book, St. Francis Nikos Kazantzakis wrote: “Choosing the sure thing is treason for the soul.” In other words, going towards what feels right, safe and familiar does not stretch us – there is no risk involved, no adventure. You stepped out from under the umbrella into the unknown and it has paid off in spades. Good for you. I’m very happy to see your life pan out. Not knowing where we are going sometimes proves to be the best medicine for the soul. Because we get to use parts of ourselves that have gone unused before. You can only go forwards, never backwards. Onward and upward my friend. well done… enjoy the vacation.
