A New Adventure

i tremble to want
i fear to resign myself
i burn to destroy
all that is
has been
not just wipe the slate
but shatter it to the ground
make it my footpath
~Soa Aona

Did you ever feel that the life you are living isn’t yours? More a façade than a life? These are the questions I have been entertaining recently. Yesterday, while sitting in a staff meeting, I decided to do something about it. I resigned and determined to move to DC.

I know this sounds a bit extreme, but this is how I make my best decisions. Without over-thinking or excessive planning. Simply when and how the mood strikes me. That’s how I got to Charlotte. I woke up one morning and decided to move. No job, no place to live. Without that choice I wouldn’t be the person I am today, and, craziness and all, I really like me. I never would have met the people who have become some of my very best and dearest friends. I would not have been able to work for, what I think is, the best company around.

Now it is time for a new adventure, and no good adventure is ever planned. I will take all I have become thus far and use those pieces of me as the cornerstone of something new.
