Navigating The Unknown
Talking with her about all of this made me do some serious self-reflection of my own. To speak candidly, this last month has been a total whirlwind, and currently, my life feels like it's smack dab in the middle of uncertainty. We're waiting to hear whether or not we successfully acquired out first-choice home. We need to be out of our current home by the end of March and we might not know about this next one until two weeks beforehand. That's scary. I also recently booked a couple of photography jobs for this spring that will completely push me out of my comfort zone. Self-confidence is certainly a fickle beast, especially when it's directly proportional to a steep new learning-curve.
The thing is, I know that change is good. Challenge is good. I (mostly) thrive under pressure, and pressure is what these next couple of months will likely be characterized by. I'm equal parts terrified and hopeful for all that's ahead. The sun still rises up over the horizon every morning, and as long as I've got air in my lungs and a heart beating in my chest, I know that I can face--and conquer--anything.
P.S. That sweet little mug up there is named Waldo. We spent the night at Emma's place on Saturday night, and so did he. Waldo is as big of a cuddly sweetheart as they come. He and Tiho became fast friends.
