There it is. I can see it. There, on the horizon. It’s my future. Uncertain, curious, and ready.
The clock is winding down FAST!
I gave my notice at work three weeks and two days ago. Somehow those last three weeks seemed to drag. But today, my last Monday at work, flew right by. And I have absolutely no doubt that the next three days will be no different, if not even more sped up.
It almost feels as if there will be this enormous buzzer in my head that will sound at the end of the day on Thursday, and I’ll start the free float that will be my immediate future. Right now, I imagine it as a dreamy, haze-type feeling. I’ll get back to you if it does indeed feels like that.
It’s all very exciting at the moment, and I’m enjoying it for all that it’s worth. I know that the excitement won’t last. But for now, I’m reveling in it all.
Last week, my soul sister Alisha (a.k.a. LuLu) gave me two gifts. [Sidebar: Alisha is sincerely one of the most generous people I know. She has a “prize” for me almost every time we see each other. Sometimes they are tiny trinkets. Sometimes they are bigger treats. But they are always thoughtful and meaningful—in my book, the best gifts of all.] The first prize was a magnet to add to my suddenly overwhelming collection. The second prize: a small book packed with poignant and timely truths and tools, titled Radical Careering: 100 Truths to Jumpstart Your Job, Your Career, and Your Life.
As I’m reading this rad little red book, I identify with many of the descriptors, recognize “characters” that I’ve worked with, and realize for the eleventieth time that my decision to take this risk-laden jump into the deep end was SO right!
