Finally Landed!

Yes!  I am ready.

Finally cut the cord.

Made that leap of faith.

 

When it’s right it will feel right.

No explanation necessary.

Walk away from the confining four walls.

 

What’s next?

The ocean is wide!

Dive in and explore.

 

Finally.

There is no holding me back.

I’ve procrastinated long enough.

TRUST

 

 

My thoughts are hazy.

Sleep last night was interrupted.

 

A premonition of sorts?

Maybe just a reminder of what needs to be done.

 

They say it's all about the timing of things.

Is there ever a right time or perfect timing?

 

More often than not, one just has to trust.

Trust in the not knowing.

 

Trust in the uncertainty.

Best of all, trust in him up there.

 

Somewhere in the sky behind the haze,

Someone is watching over me.

 

This I trust 100%.

Smitten!

In the South of France.

Second time around, the love gets stronger!

Thousands of miles away, her mind is able to switch off from reality.

Her heart beats with excitement each waking moment.

Oh! how the smell of the ocean invites delight!

There is no ending, only beginnings.

Clarity

 

Struggling to break free from a toxic work life, 

I've forgotten what a quiet moment sounds like and feels like.

Staring at the window and watching the sunrise,

Today I find myself sitting at my work station alone.

Alas! this moment of silence reminds me of my core.

Not all is lost, just at a standpoint in between crossroads.

The next steps are beginning to clear.
