Seasons

Time has gone by so fast since my last post when I started my new internship and weekend job. There’s not much time to blog when I’m working seven days a week. Who knew?

Transitions are never easy, but they don’t have to be drudgery. Eventually we adjust to whatever it is that is changing. I feel like I have adjusted to my new workflow (lifeflow?), even though it will all be changing again.

I’ve learned to see more things in life as being temporary, subject to disruption. I’ve personally realized there are seasons in my life. They come and go in ways that are usually beyond my control. I have learned not to resist the changing seasons, but to anticipate when they will change and prepare myself to facilitate the change.

Taking the risk to come out here is probably the best thing I have ever done. It was a pivotal moment for me and many others in my life.

Now I’ve reached the point that most things here are second-nature to me. I could easily show someone all my favorite places around the city, even though I’m still discovering new ones.

I think when you grow up in a place, you tend to take it for granted, even if you don’t intend to. I sometimes wonder if I could done more in the region where I grew up. Maybe one day, but for now I am where I need to be.
