Reflecting on life, in the moment. Whew! Time to slow down and savor the beginning of the chapter.
“How is it going?” you might be wondering.
I think it’s going well.
I’m still stunned at how fast everything happened
And how it actually worked out
Exactly as envisioned.
I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop,
While hoping there is no other shoe,
And my life really is working out this well.
Two months ago,
I had no idea I’d be living
A mile high,
In a new city,
Renting a room instead of owning a house.
Retired with a view.
Planning mother-daughter visits,
Planning trips to music festivals,
Routing my journey to national parks and hiking trails.
Who would have thought
When I moved to an area and a job
I knew weren’t a good fit for me,
That I would so quickly figure out where I wanted to be,
and my stay would be so short.
I thought it would be two years and out.
Instead it was eight months.
From the time I made the decision, it was five weeks.
So worth the moments of stress.
