Baby steps and leaps of faith, that’s where I am at in this new life I didn’t choose but am adapting too. Photos show the past and still, I have no idea what, even the near future holds.
I’m venturing forth with a leap of faith in a new to me industry, Retail, that I am enjoying and thriving in so far. It’s happier than healthcare. I feel anxious when I think of healthcare; a little PTSD from the past 9 years.
In addition to a new career, in five short months of widowhood, I have used the time not only to process my grief but to build my own small business on eBay. In this short time I have reached Top Rated Seller Plus. It’s a goal I didn’t really try to hit, but I did, and I’m proud of it.
In my present topsy-turvy world I have cleaned out closets, made new space, filled some of it with new things. I worry about finances, about my house, and my logical side says this is a bad time for a career change. I can’t change nor control what happened to me in the past, but the dawning tomorrow is something I have at least a little control over. So I’m choosing different this time. Nothing is the same. I get a re-do, at a tremendous price, yes, but I get it. Blessings abound.
