This week I silently began to say goodbye to a career path that I have been on for the last fifteen to twenty years. As I watched careers begin for others, I began to say goodbye to the one I have known for so many years. It is not a sad goodbye, just not known to the world yet. It is merely a new path; a vector if you will.
Yet, it feels right. I am happy with this new path. I feel like this is somehow where I was meant to be headed, and instead of being wrought with stress and fear of never being enough, I now feel valued and at peace.
This will be a long goodbye, I will do it right. But as I do so, I look forward to what this new future will look like. I am inspired and I feel my creativity surging yet again. I feel the weight and heaviness of the old career melting away as I embrace my new endeavour. And I’m happy. I feel my energy returning. I feel my posture beginning to straighten metaphorically (and perhaps physically), my eyes feel brighter, and my mind sharper.
I am ready.
