It dawned on me this morning that everything around me is changing. Just about every aspect of my life currently hangs in the balance. Will it? Won't it? Will they? Won't they? Will I?
So much is out of my control, but lately I've been thinking about all the changes I've made this past year. 2010 has been eye opening and heart breaking and life altering. I've been given more responsibility than I've ever had before. I've had to make countless decisions and the choices I make count. They matter. I've never been more confident in who I am and what I'm doing. It hit me last week when I walked into work, set my things down in my little corner office, and picked up the stack of papers waiting for me. Holy crow. I'm a grown up.
2010 will always be the year that I landed a senior position with an amazing company at the ripe old age of 25. It will always be the year that I finally asked for help when I needed it. And it will always be the year that I looked in the mirror and genuinely smiled at my reflection.
Perhaps it'll be the year of another thing or two - guess we'll have to wait and see.
So even though I have hundreds of questions and zero answers, my faith lies in the future. I think it's going to be bright.
Won't forget, can't regret...
P.S. Thanks to your outpour of love and support, my dad (the JDIPC) has agreed to a monthly post on JGIWC!
