Change …Yes?! No?!

There is one thing that we can count on in life and that is change. Change is exciting, scary, full of unpredictable opportunities, and it is inevitable. Since my husband Doug and I got married, two years ago, we have been on an exciting roller coaster ride. We work like crazy and then take two-week long vacations to amazing and beautiful places. Our lifestyle has been wonderful. Just like a fairy tale. Although, we both knew change was coming, we focused on enjoying the present. You see,the whole time we were working our jobs, planning trips and traveling, I have been taking online classes toward my career. It was easy to just get up and go because I as long as I had my laptop and an internet connection, I could go anywhere and still keep up with my studies.

Well the time is coming. In two weeks, I will have completed my required courses. This is good, right? This is what I have been working toward. I can begin my career and move on in life, right? It is bittersweet. I love our life right now. Life is going to change for us. I will have to commit to a job. A job that will want me to be there everyday and not take two weeks off at a time. Although I am excited about finally getting back into the working world, making money , and making a difference, there is a part of me that doesn’t want life to change.

I will be starting the next phase of my life this week as I take a part time job and commit myself to gaining more experience in my chosen field. As I said in the first post of my blog.. I want to live a life of no regrets! So onward and upward I go with faith that life’s changes are powerful and full of new wonderful opportunities.

I am 54 years-old and the mother of three grown children. In the last five years, I left a profession I was in for over 20 years, I moved to a new city, re-married, went back to school to discover a new profession, and became a grandma for the first time. I also am pursuing my passion for writing. I am writing a children's picture book and I started my first blog ever. For years I was afraid of change but I now I embrace it

One thought on “Change …Yes?! No?!

  1. I was listening to T.D Jake’s this morning and what you wrote today reminds me of what he was preaching about… he said it’s easy to sit in your nest and have God bless you. He feeds you, he clothes you and gives you joy. But you’ll know when he says it’s time to fly and momma you were ment to soar! The career you are going in to is so selfless its beyond making money. You are going to impact so may children’s lives. I believe God will give you time to travel too because he knows that’s what you love. But he may need you for a higher purpose right now. You just keep inspiring your own children! You know you are the reason we push our selves so hard, trying to keep up with you. Being ok with being “good” can be the enemy of being great Love you, love your blog
