My life is about to change. This is always the case though, right? Change is always lurking over the horizon? From day-to-day, minute-to-minute…
What’s happening with me these days:
One planned change I intend to make is to go back to school next year. I’m looking at New York University’s offering for an MFA in Literary Reportage. I would love to take on this challenge. Universe, do you hear me?! Thank you in advance! This endeavor would only move me closer toward my potential and into a career that I’m passionate about. Being around creatives gives me life.
My daughter who commutes to college should be living on campus as of next fall – which would render me a real empty nester. I’ll miss her – but, change is good. 🙂 One downside: I’ll be responsible for walking our dog Gracie. Unsure why I let my son convince me to get a dog. Welp!
The Parent Life
My mother’s been in and out of the hospital lately and is needing more help deciding on a course of action as far as medical treatment and living arrangements. I live the closest to her although I’m one state away. I’m gonna have be a lot more involved in her care. Change is on the horizon, but I haven’t figured it out yet.
Travel & Companionship – Life!
Also – I’ve been doing some traveling; I know I’ve refrained from sharing those stories here. My travel companion and I have been making great memories together – and that makes me happy. Next up on my radar are London and Ghana! Woop woop! My only reservations are that I get panicky on airplanes (really bad sometimes), and I need just shy of one hundred vaccines to go to Ghana. Gross exaggeration, but I’ve never considered getting a flu vaccine, or any of the others. Bleh.
There are changes happening at work (my 9 to 5 job), but I’ll save you the torture/ boredom!
Yea, my life is about to change – for the best! Isn’t that what we’re about – expecting the best?
I should tell you that there’s a lot happening that’s taking me outside my comfort zone. But that’s where the best, most fruitful changes occur.
What kinds of changes do you have on the horizon? Anything you hope to do or accomplish? Any advice for handling unexpected change, or aging parents? Any travel plans? Budding new relationships? How do you hope those changes will impact you?
