It’s 4:30am and I’m wide-awake. My mind is racing. The array of emotions has been plenty. Happiness, excitement, anxiety, concern, anticipation they are all my frequent visitors. A change is near! It’s like the excitement when you get to the end of a really good book. All the pieces start coming together yet you know in a few more pages, you will be exiting the lives of the characters you have become so familiar with. You have become attached and want more! But now have to hope and wait for a sequel to see what direction they will go in next.
It’s been almost 3 years since a change of this magnitude affected my world and in some ways it seems like yesterday. I don’t believe in accidents. When you have a clear picture of who you are, and what you want, your dreams become reality. The universe (God) will bring it to you.
It all started with an email that I sent to a man I had not seen or heard from in 12 years. He left my mind but never my heart. While we lived in different states our parents just happened to live in the same. So while visiting our families one Christmas he invited me to dinner. When I opened the door and saw him it was like time had stood still. We talked, talked and talked some more. While the evening finally ended the conversations never did.
Eight months later I was moving across the country and leaving 38 years of single, city living behind, heading to suburbia to become a Mrs. I could not have dreamed it any better. But when the moving truck pulled away and I was standing in my empty townhouse sadness came over me. It was like saying goodbye to an acquaintance that you know you will never see again. I honored my emotion and allowed my self to experience sadness that evening.
I woke up the next morning full of excitement. Grabbed a coffee, hugged my close friend goodbye, and headed to the airport. Good-bye Dallas!
I stepped off the plane in Charlotte and began the next sequel to my wonderful life!
Now three years later, a change is near! Here we go again… More to come next week.
