You have all humbled me with your kind and supportive responses.
This blog was started when I lost a long time job and when I started it I had no clue where life would take me. I am amazed at how much calmer I am today, in the light of uncertainty, than I was two and a half years ago.
Sometimes life is all about preparing you for the next step. My eyes are open to so much more today than they were.
I had been looking at other employment opportunites for some time now – I knew in my heart that I needed to find other work. The housing industry in Michigan is shaky, at best. I had been looking in West Michigan – and was a bit depressed at how depressed the economy truly is around here. But, not being much of a “glass half empty” person, I could not linger in that state long.
Then came the shake up of job loss and with a renewed sense of direction – I began to look outside my comfort zone.
I need to apply to my life what I have been telling my children for years – change is inevitable. Change happens daily because each day is different than the last. Learn to embrace and accept change – life will be so much easier.
Sometimes the hardest thing is to do what you tell others to do.
So, I am heading on a new journey. One that I do not know where it is leading to. But, I know that I am not traveling on this journey alone.
This could actually be a very good thing – think of how many knitting minutes I will now have between now and Christmas!
Life is in fact very, very good.
Stay tuned tomorrow for some knitting and spinning content!
Thanks for your prayers and support – they are truly a balm to my soul!
