Until very recently I believed that other people could live their dreams and that other people had choices I was not able to make. I gave all my power away. And it was sad to be powerless and choiceless. It felt like being stuck. What little energy I kept for myself I used up trying hard at all the things. There is never enough trying hard. It’s exhausting and also sad. It was time to make my own choices. So I did.
I want to tell you all about how I quit my job after twenty two years, and my husband got a job for the first time in ten years in another state, and that I became a stay at home mom (for however briefly) and how we made a plan to take our kids out of school so we could travel until January. But I haven’t found all the words, yet. For now, just look at this costume i saw at L’Opera Garnier in Paris (I went to Paris and London after I quit my job), you guys. Try making choices, too. It feels great. The world is waiting for you to show up.
