Into the Grey

Starting a new journey can often feel like going on a journey into the fog or heavy mist.  You do not know for sure where you are headed, only that you are going down a new road.  It is a new adventure.  It can be scary or great.  A lot of how you look at it depends on your attitude.

This picture was taken on the top of a mountain in Jefferson National Forest in the middle of heavy fog and pouring rain.  I could not see in front of the car more than a little bit and it was scary, yet I knew that even if I missed the road and fell off the mountain, everything would some how turn out alright.  

I have to remember this when I start out again in a month on a journey to find yet another place to live and a new job.  I know some of where I am going, just not the practical things, such as where will I live or work and how will I get what I want to bring with me to where ever it is I am going.  A lot of questions now, but time will show me where I am headed.  I just have to listen carefully and keep walking.

Remember what it felt like the first time you ever ate ice cream or visited an ill friend in the hospital?  Sometimes, you have to step outside yourself and try something new.  Today was like that for me.  My current management is restructuring and my last day at my current job will be March 26, 2010.  The future awaits.

What will it hold?  Is it a gamble?  Will I survive the next sequence?  Only time will tell.  But for now I have loose ends to tie and keep treading water as I have been doing.

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
