January steamrolled me in ways I didn’t expect. I quit my day job after eight long (and sometimes terrible) years, the kids are in middle school (the most evil three years of anyone’s life), and my agent and I parted ways. So much change at one time could be enough to make anyone pull a Rip Van Winkle.
But before we disappear under our covers, we should take a moment. The old has to be cleared away before the new can be born. Maybe this change and uncertainty is the passage from one state to another: Change as a chance to get it right.
When I learned to ride a horse and got dumped, I dusted myself off and got back on.
February must be dusting off month. I am in a new job which treats me well. I’m working a new writing project, another is in a contest waiting to be judged (*fingers crossed for making finals*), I judged a contest, and this weekend I get to read/review a book for Jamie Farrell. All brought to me by … change.
Look for the opportunity hidden in change. Be resilient. Let’s see where 2017 takes us.
