There comes a time in a person’s life when the next move is wholly unforeseeable. You’ve graduated college. You’ve no full time job tying you down. No marriage to take up your time. Like a leaf falling from a tree you have one blissful moment of flight in which you simply don’t know where you’ll land.
It can be thrilling. But change, even for the most thrill seeking person, can be such a hard thing to adjust to. Especially when it comes to someone who’s had a very typical life. Went through all the expected trials of trying to be a perfect student, a good daughter/son, a decent human being. It’s what we all go through.
But for that person, change is imminent. And change is scary. To look out into an unending abyss and see nothing but black. It’s a sea of possibility, and once you embark on a new adventure, with it will come many great things I’m sure. But taking that initial leap..
You can’t know how much will change.
You don’t know if you’ll be the same person this time next year but you just hope you’ll be better. Uncertainty is sometimes a good thing. It makes you question things, think things through more logically. But when you’re at a completely blank slate with no external commitments and no road map, and it’s just you and the open road, you’ve simply got to accept that you’ve made it to this point in your life where change, in some shape, form, or color will be inevitable. Your life needs to keep moving forward, somehow.
It’s frightening. Exciting. Frexciting.
