My guest post on her blog actually went up at the exact best moment it possibly could have. I was sitting at Whole Foods, having temporarily given up my quest to buy a book for class next week, about to have a mild breakdown in the form of whathaveIdonewithmylife and canIreallyhandleallthis?! You know how those mid-move challenges - like figuring out how to work your new shower, finding the right bus route, making room for the 17,000 hangers you don't need, remembering how to sleep without air conditioning - all start piling up after a while? Well, I had watched a mountain of them form and was bracing myself for the avalanche. I sat down at Whole Foods, took a series of deliberate deep breaths, and grabbed my phone as a distraction. Who says twitter isn't good for anything?
Alivia's tweet about my guest post popped up in the first few tweets I scrolled through and I clicked through to her blog to check it out. It was the reminder I needed. I'm here because I think I have something to give to the world. There's an authenticity to it, an energy brewing. And I'm following that because I think it's the very best I can do.
The answered to my panicked questions arrived with peace: My life is fine and yes, I can really handle this. Even more so, my life is good, and I think I can thrive on this. And then I went on to eat my lunch.
All in all, this move had been the easiest move I've ever made. But it's still a move and I am still adjusting. I'm also handling the new school/job administrative paperwork
ANYWAY. I hope you all are having a great week. (We are mid-week, right?)
