Turn the Page

I have been very preoccupied as of late. I've made a life decision, and as with any major decision, it comes with it's share of insecurities.

You know that feeling when everything seems to come together? When just the right amount of bad things happen, and they're counterbalanced with an equal amount of good things that all figure into a decision you've been contemplating? No? Not eloquent enough?

There are times I hear a higher power speaking to me, and this is one of them. The decision to leave my day job has been one I've entertained numerous times through the years. *Now* is that time. It's time to turn the page. I've faced life decisions before, some of them good decisions, some of them not so good, but even the not so good ones helped shape me into the person I am today.

I'm ready for this new chapter. I'm writing a book that's different from what I've done before, but something I've always wanted to do, and I'm expecting that once I've settled into a new routine, my muse will choose if this new book is just the beginning of the road leading a different direction, or a labor of love dedicated to the people who taught me how to make those life decisions (acknowledging the good and taking responsibility for the bad) who will forever be a part of my life's journey.

So congratulate me. Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of my life.
