One Step at a Time
I have heard it said that the best way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time. Well, I need to remember this right now. I am currently preparing to move 1600 miles away from where I have lived for the past 28 years! I am excited and anxious all at the same time. I have felt overwhelmed and I have felt extreme enthusiasm about new opportunities for me in my career. It’s been a bit of a roller coaster ride for me, my friends.
I’ve been surrounded by loving friends who have continuously reminded me of what I need to do as I face the many tasks ahead of me. They have reminded me to rest when I am tired. They have reminded me to give myself credit for what I have accomplished so far. And, they have reminded me that everything can get done if I am willing to ask for help when I need it. It is evident to me that it is no coincidence that I named my website, “We are the Reminder”, because I need reminders every day.
So, to be clear, I am not attempting to literally eat an elephant…haha! But I am attempting to work full-time, attend graduate school (seminary) part-time, and prepare to donate most of my possessions and pack up only the essentials that will fit in my car in order to move from Florida to Connecticut and, eventually, Massachusetts. Am I crazy for doing this??? I don’t think so. I’m a person who is moving forward with life choices in order to be closer to my family. I am a person who is motivated to become an ordained minister (Unity). And, I am someone who loves what I do as I help people become aware of their spirituality. It’s a great life and I’m more than capable of pulling this off.
It is clear to me that there are many emotions that go along with a big move such as the one I am choosing to make in less than two months. I’m okay with that. I feel more alive than ever before. I’m ready to make this work. I have many friends in Florida and in New England as well. And, most of all, I have faith that I will be receiving Divine Guidance from within every step of the way. I affirm on a daily basis: “I am willingly open to all possibilities”. One step at a time…one bite at a time…I can do this.
