A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about an unexpected curve-ball.
The curve-ball was confirmed yesterday. While I won’t go into details, I will say that the curve-ball was not as shocking as I thought it would be.
It has been said that when one door closes, another opens. I hope that is the case.
Change is scary, period. I don’t know about anyone else, but I thrive on the familiar and the comfortable. I need that schedule and that routine to get me through the day. But the reality is that we don’t grow until we step out of our comfort zone.
I am a believer in fate, that everything happens for a reason. I also know the value of hard work.
This curve-ball creates an opportunity. Though to be honest, the curve-ball is anxiety inducing, I know that I will come out of this stronger and better than I was before.
I am aware of the opportunity before me.
I could go back to where I was, but that is up in the air as of right now.
But if that does not pan out, I have to force myself to look at my present situation as a challenge and an opportunity.
I know it won’t be easy. I will make a few mistakes along the way. Where and when I will end up is a mystery.
But life is a mystery and a challenge. Nothing is guaranteed.
I put my faith and my hope in the hands of my creator, the one who watches over me and everyone else in the world.
I know that everything in life happens for a reason. The hard times I’ve been through have made me the person I am today.
I know I am stronger than my fears and my insecurities.
Doris Day once sang the following lyrics: que sera sera, whatever will be will be, the future is not ours to see.
Tomorrow is a new day, a new chance and a new opportunity.
