Where do I begin? I sit here, fingers on keyboard asking for guidance as to what to write. It has been nearly two months since my last blog, “Everything Is Changing, All At Once,” and I’ve struggled to find the words to express what I’ve been experiencing as the dust settles after the big change.
We landed in Midtown, Atlanta with all of its city lights and sounds. I can say that I am in awe of the beauty of this city and of the energy that it embodies, yet I find myself feeling a bit intimidated by the vastness of it.
I find myself missing my home, missing my children and missing my friends. The momentum that carried me these past two months, with the preparation and the actual move, has slowed. Reality has set in. Nothing is familiar and finding balance and serenity takes extra effort.
Self-care and practicing what helps me feel grounded is of most importance at this time. The simple tools such as prayer, meditation, and connecting with the wise and amazing women that are in my life is what helps me to remember that all is well, and that I am not alone. I take life one day at a time as I continue to trust the guidance and know that the higher purpose of being in Atlanta will reveal itself in time.
