There is a purity in the moment when I reach an "expiration date" - that moment when I realize that I have done all that I can in a job, relationship or any situation and as I perch to liberate myself again, knowing that there is no purpose or benefit to continue in that old place.
In the past, I've RUN towards my next thing, to get the hell away from a stale circumstance.
This time, as I prepare to do something bigger with my time, I am content in the moment, savoring the goodness of it, and deeply grateful for the gifts that my present job have given me. All of the challenges lead to profound growth, the fear turned to courage, and my vulnerability to only extended, supportive hands to hold onto.
There is a calling so I take one step after another to see what the really means.
Even though I know that endings are beginnings, I still get dipped into both anticipation and trepidation when I know my current place is a fading bloom.
Having gone through this experience multiple times in my life, I've learned to simply grant myself permission to go, blessing the growth from the gifts and lessons and squinting into the future to take the first step into the unknown.
I am like a balloon cut free, right now, immersing into that purity of moving on.
