Today is my last day of working the job that I have done off and on for the last 12 years. I am finding this challenging and emotional.

It is definatly time for change...I find my passion is not the same - I used to get excited even about the mundane but now the "everyday" is what challenges me the most. I still get all wound up about the extrodinary things...things like people doing things they never imagined. That still sets me on fire...When I talk about my friends who are doing things they never thought possible I still get all reved up!! But my energy none the less is not the same for the other parts of my days. So here I go - stepping off the plank...or at least that is what the mind picture I have today is...I just pray that the Lord will catch me and put me down gently into the ocean as I try and find my swimming arms in this new body of water.

I am freaked out and excited (okay more freaked out than excited!) - but I know that I have an amazing circle of support who will help me swim in the right direction and help me find land.

So where lays my passion? What does God have in store? What will my life look like in 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 5 days?

I hearby release all preconcieved notions (and will continue to do so on a daily basis), live in the moment and TRUST the Lord to guide my life - as one thing I know for sure is that I have NO control over where he needs and wants me to be!

I've done the career change leap -- and it is exciting...and you're like me, in that you've got your life partner to help you on this. I personally don't know what I would have done with my frustration and angst if I'd been alone.

I think you're awesome for making the move -- if you need to talk/debrief, don't hesitate to call me!
