Sometimes the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. Such is the story of my life. Unfortunately, I did not get to run the 5K Saturday as I had planned; in fact nothing lately has gone as planned. Friday brought along a major life change for me and I have since been working on what I am considering my "comeback". Comeback from what you might ask? For this girl, it's from a life of zombie living (see previous post for definition). I was doing pretty well, moving right along through life in a way that I was comfortable with. But since when does comfortable = happy? I was content with my job because it provided me an opportunity to rebuild my life, but ultimately it didn't provide me with the fulfillment I needed. Thanks to recent events I have had an opportunity to re-evaluate the direction my life is going.
It's one thing to have a dream and a whole other thing to pursue it. How many of us out there chased our dream or are doing something truly fulfilling with our lives? If you're not but had the opportunity to do so, would you? What if it meant living outside of your comfort zone for a while? Today I am faced with such a decision. I am both terrified and excited at the possibilities that lie ahead.
Since Friday, I have been collecting all the information I need to make a truly informed decision. Anyone who knows me knows that's my process for EVERYTHING (from buying a grill to making a career change). I never want to look back on any decision with regret.
So here I am, at the fork in the road to my future. Where it leads hasn't been completely decided.....but I can tell you that my internal compass (heart) is pulling me in a certain direction.
Needless to say, some announcements are to be expected soon. Stay tuned for the adventure!
