It's kind of poetic that I re-begin my blog on my birthday. I started a new life chapter on Monday. And honestly, it scares the crap out of me. How am I going to afford the mortgage payments while keeping up with all my bills? What kind of dbag am I to leave my team and the company I've had the pleasure (mostly) of working for? But after much thought, planning, and surprising set of circumstances, I saw the opening of the path I've always wanted to be there and took that step -- and it was important that I took it. There are times in your life when forces greater than you push you in the direction that you're life is destined to go. I've ignored those signs long enough and now that I've set the sail and turned the page, I don't know when I've been as happy, excited and anxious as I am now. But I KNOW that I'm still at the bottom of the hill looking up. But it's my hill to climb and I'm ready! Happy Bday!
