Like I said, everything is a little blurry, except the fact that I am now counting the days until I enter a new life. With all new beginnings there comes endings. I thought about that a lot today. I will experience the end of my career path with the company I am leaving, and it's quite likely I will see the end of some friendships I have developed over the last two years. There was a lot that I was willing to give up to make this change though, so in the grand scheme of things, that's not so bad.
I am thankful for perspective. I know what it's like to be a working mom. I can appreciate what the other women in my life go through that will continue to be working moms. I also know, from experience, that it's not right for me, not in the sense that I've been doing it anyway. I hope that weeks, months, and years down the road I will remember this feeling I have now.
What are you thankful for this week?
