Transitioning

full time freelance

This is the face of a girl who has one dream dying and another dream coming true. How can this be possible? My marriage is over and my heart is broken, and yet somehow, my dream of being a working writer is suddenly sprawling itself out in front of me like a brand new lover in my bed.

I’m going to take it as the most glorious sign and be gracious and be thankful and be present and make love to it in every possible way.

I lived “happily” in such a state of SAMENESS for so long. Every day was the same. Every conversation was the same. Every person was the same. Now, I’m faced with newness in every single minute. In my brain, in my heart, in my experiences. Everything is the first time for my new normal, but now I have this little gift of self-worth that I’ve created. I have something new that’s bringing me this crazy joy of self-fulfillment, in one of my darkest times.

This little dream I suddenly started believing in again last October when I started my blog. Maybe I knew this storm was coming and I grew the blog from my heart like a little life preserver for me to cling to. Just in the nick of time. HOW LUCKY AM I FOR THAT?

Keep your eyes open and your heart open and be willing to hurt and feel and change and be scared and take chances and look at what can happen. Grow yourself new dreams so that if one dream dies, you’ll still have magical things to cling to.

  2. I have learned over the years to embrace change. Sometimes change is painful and even unwelcome, but when I settle in to the acceptance phase its easier to look at the bigger picture and truly feel the growth that is beginning. Re-creating who I am periodically is what keeps these gears running. You’re a great example of strength, courage, and following your dreams. Thanks for sharing!
