So much life, so little time…

…to blog!  Two months ago I got a new job, moved to a new city, got a new apartment, joined a new church, and as a result I haven’t written any new blog posts!  This is quite ironic because there is so much to write about.  I don’t even know where to begin, but a good place is usually at the beginning.  However, I need to get my solid 8 hours of sleep for my new job, so the beginning will have to come another time…soon.

Tomorrow, I am closing one door and opening another.  Tomorrow, I begin a new chapter in my life.  Tomorrow, I say goodbye to old friends and say hello to new ones.

Tomorrow, I am moving to a new state, a new home, and a new job.  If you’ve read some of my past posts, you may have noticed a pattern of  topics about ‘change’ or variations of it.  I knew in my gut that I needed a change in my life; I just didn’t know what kind of change I needed or wanted.  I have been praying for months for God to give me clarity and help me to make the right decisions to keep me on the path he has laid out for me.  As always, He has answered my prayers.

The act of moving is a complex one.  Half of me feels this forward momentum, positive spirit, and excitement about the move, while the other half is holding on tightly and not wanting to let go of the people in my life here.  And then, I realize that I don’t have to let go of them because they will always be with me.   This frees up more space for positive light.

This entire experience proves to me once again that life happens on God’s time and he surely knows better than I do what is best for me.  Six months ago, I would not have been ready for the new life that lies ahead of me tomorrow.  But, today I am ready.  Of course I still have fears and insecurities about the whole thing, but I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t feel some of that.  The fact is that I have a strong enough spiritual foundation to go anywhere and do anything, and the only real attachment/responsibility I have is to my two dogs and ‘home’ for them is wherever I am.  So, now is the time to get out of my comfort zone and live my life, and I’m taking everyone along with me for the ride!
