Fear, trembling, and new paths ahead

I'm getting ready to move, to end a job, to get rid of most of my stuff, and step into something new.  And I don't know what it is.  I'm trusting i'll know it when I get there.

So, I'm working through a lot, with a lot of trust, and a large dose of fear and trembling.  Ugh.

Tonight is one of those fear and trembling times, and attempts at trusting, feeble as they may be.  Ugh.

Letting go.  Of just about everything -- so it feels right now.  And being open to new things (which aren't really "things" at all, that I know).

So, though there may be few to none who find this blog again, at least I'm writing.  And trembling.

New adventures.

How exciting! Life is pretty wonderful, and it supports us even when we don't know how it will. Consider the lillies of the field ...

Vic, you seemed more upbeat when we chatted yesterday afternoon. What was that program you attended last night? I shared your greetings and hopefulness with JohnBear ... we are looking forward to seeing you again when you're ready to come up here!

Thanks for posting a comment about starting anew. Aren't we really all starting over every chance we get? New job, another diet, meeting new friends - we hope, turning the page. It is a pleasure to use your blog as the gateway to other interesting writers. I wish you could post more, but I'm glad to see this entry from you. A friend called Brother Bear.

Vic,
When I left the monastery in 2004, after more than 30 years of a happy and settled life, I had no pension plan, no financial assistance, no savings, no long-term job prospects in sight, no ... well, you know exactly what I am talking about. I told friends that every day felt like taking another step out over an abyss -- but every day a Hand came from SomeWhere to hold me up. It was scary, it was sometimes hard. But the Hand always came.
Eleven years later I am happily married to a great friend, a man I admire, trust and love. Eleven years ago I would not have expected to have someone like Tom in my life, much less that the day would come when we could be married.
Trust, hope, love, live. May you be well, may you be happy, may you be ever more joyous and free. May love find you ready.

Just checking in. Hope things are good.

Hello old friend, start writing and know I will follow along your path with you. Strange, I always thought when we became adults the journey would be over, but adult life seems to be one journey after another.

amazing, you all had such hopeful comments, very inspiring! so I have moved across the states, still swimming through the turbulence in unknown waters, but blessings are still coming my way, slowly getting adjusted to all, learning I need a particular skill certificate to get a job here...ok more school at my age...wow, I have to produce, work, before I can relax and make choices and start to make a difference in the world around me. thank you for encouraging words.
