Making a change that many people would say is ‘life changing’ should probably make me anxious.
Any life changes that are drastic enough probably generate at least some amount of anxiety.
Making this decision to begin with was both challenging and easy.
At first I was forced to examine myself and my life. I agonized over making a change to upset this precarious balance and my view of an easy lifestyle.
But as I went through the pros and cons the decision shone brightly and clearly and seemed almost overwhelmingly simple.
It was time.
In the near future I wonder if I’ll look back and regret what I’ve done. The fear of change would account for that.
But what I know right now is that I actually feel a great sense of relief now that it’s over and I can’t look back, nor change my decision.
The opportunities that I have in front of me are vast and deep with challenges that I am sure will likewise be just as wonderful.
I wake up this morning with a renewed sense of purpose and for the moment at least, a direction to head into.
A comforting thought for now.
Dad, I should have done this sooner to fulfill at least one promise I made.
We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. – Walt Disney
You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life. – Steve Jobs
