I am in the midst of a vocational transition - moving from one location to another. A question that has been coming up a lot is "how do you feel about the move?"
And my honest answer is "I don't know."
I don't know because it is so new that I haven't had enough time to process it yet. I don't know because I am feeling all the feelings right now - sorrow at leaving folks I know and love. Excitement about what may come next - just to name a few. And I don't know because I'm stepping into the unknown.
Or so I thought.
But it dawned on me that each day is the unknown. Each day I sit, stand, play, move, and be in the unknown. Which is a big admission for a planner like me. To say that even my plans are wishes until they can become reality because I don't know what each moment holds.
The unknown can be scary. But it is also full of potential and possibility. How can you embrace the unknown and all that it may hold?
It seems like such a simple question - what brings you joy? - yet, for many of us, we get so caught up in our heads thinking of an answer that we ignore what our heart is saying.
I find joy in simple things. This past week I found joy:
What brings you joy? And who shares in that joy with you?
