Next Move ???

So all sorts of friends and family have been asking me what’s my next move.  I keep telling them that I am taking a few days to just…be.  Get on a more even keel and then I’ll start making some decisions.  It’s amazing to me to see how many folks are wanting me to make big life-changing decisions, more cross-country moves and stuff, in reaction too this situation.  I don’t get that.

I also am having to wrestle with the petty insecure part of myself, beat it back down into submission and continue acting in accord with all those values and ethics that have been previously discussed?

I could stay in Central Florida, I could go to Oregon (apparently its some sort of Contemporary Pagan mecca, or something), or Austin with my fabulous Southern Regional gamer/Witch/geek princess friend Sabrina (no really!  That’s her name!), I could also return to Alaska and (among others) my North West Regional gamer/Witch/geek princess friend Lady R (Not her real name)…

I don’t know yet.

For a few days seek balance, then move from there!

      Possibly and Probably,

      Then too there IS the fact that the me of 3 to 5 years ago would have been more prone to total emotional collapse and deep angst in the same situation!

      …Growing up is SUCH an adventure!!


  1. I’m sure the friends asking you this and offering you alternatives are well-meaning. However, like you, I just can’t picture myself making any sudden life-changing decisions right away under your circumstances.

    The only time I’ve done anything close to that was when I broke up with my ex and moved two months later. However, the two choices were explicitly intertwined at the time. I was already contemplating the move due to other factors in my life and the only thing holding me back was the relationship. So when I placed the question to my boyfriend at the time and he made it clear that the relationship wasn’t going anywhere in the foreseeable future, I broke things off and moved ahead.

    But like I said, that’s fairly different. I was already contemplating such major changes. The breakup was merely a natural part of the decision-making process. And I still took a couple months off before looking for the job that would result in the move.

  2. Know your friends love and support you, that they are tempted to try to Fix It, that they can’t do your work for you. Natural processes take nature’s time. Take time for grief, take time for discernment.

So what do you think?! Opinions? Ideas? Beuller... Bueller?!
