A New Beginning

with one comment

A new year, a new start, a new adventure. 


I’m not sure that anything is scarier than when anything is possible.  All of a sudden I feel like the new college graduate I was over 10 years ago without any idea of what the future held for me.


With 10 years to reflect on, I don’t know if anything has changed.  I thought turning 30 would bring maturity, wisdom, and confidence.  But I don’t feel any different.  I still feel self doubt, and unsure of my next step.  It feels especially difficult when my self identity has been so closely linked to where I’ve been, rather than who I am.


What I lack in personal development, though, I have made up for in cultivating a strong support system.  Somewhere along the way, I must have done something right.  Everyone has been more than supportive and eager to go out of their way to find any opening or opportunity, no matter how small.  They’ve jumped feet first and have been encouraging with empathy and kind words.


I sit here very unsure of what may come next, but confident that I will find a path that will bring new discovery.  At least that is the hope I am clinging to.
