This was the last day

So. If this were my year of liberation, I’m now really free.

And slightly frightened.

It’ll go more slowly than I planned; this afternoon I got an offer to work 10 hours a week from remote until my successor is trained, and I took it. And I’ve gotta make the move and I don’t know why I feel so anxious about it.

But in essence, this phase is over.

More than slightly frightened.

But also: more than slightly relieved.

  1. The unknown is always a bit scary but, being who you are, I’m sure all will be well no matter what lies ahead. Just contemplate the obstacles you have undoubtedly overcome in the past and have faith in what lies ahead! You are in many people’s thoughts and prayers I’m sure! (((Hugs)))

  2. Sounds like an ideal transition phase, with the remote job keeping you connected to the old life, and financially secured, too. Hope you can lean back over the holidays and forget it all for a bit, just enjoying the moment. Safe travels home!

  3. Thinking about you. I am not frightened for you because I know you will be better than fine in your new environment. But I am relieved for you to be moving on from a part of your life that wasn’t making you happy. Good for you for stuffing the fear far enough down to move forward. It is not easy.

  4. The unknown is usually scary and some people do not accept changes easily, but you were brave enough to start the process and that alone says you wanted to do it. And when you want to do something, you can. it may take a while to get a total grip on everything, but you will. Everything changes for a reason and it usually turns out for the good.

  5. 10 hours is a nice base to ease you in to the independence you crave. Thinking of you and wishing you eveyrthing positive in this transition. You’ll be fine, things tend to have a way of working out in the end, especially for smart, talented people like you.

  7. You know I’m thinking about you.
    You go – free – slightly frightened – anxious – slightly relieved. I hope in time, you’ll find your liberation so you’ll focus on being free ❤

  8. Stepping off the edge and into the unknown is always frightening, even if it’s something that you really want to do and involves positive change. Once you settle into your new surroundings and your new life, you will look back and probably think, “Thank goodness I had the courage to move forward and make that change.”
    Bonne chance!

  14. I’m so grateful for all of these positive thoughts — now that I have been able to catch up with them and see just how many have accompanied me. They were encouraging to read when I saw them at first and just as heartening now. Thank you!
