The new year is upon us. Unsurprisingly very little has changed. I’m still putting all things into perspective. I’m still working through who I am. I’m still ok.
There have been some decisions I’ve been making in the latter part of last year. This is all about opportunity. I’ve long felt that I’ve out-grown Portland. I’ve been here for most of my life and certainly all of my adult life. I’ve been through so many good experiences and I’ve grown tremendously here. But, I’ve had some really challenging and terrible memories here, too. There are none of those that I would change, that I would give up.
However, I’m ready to give up on Portland. It’s time for me to move on. I’m ready to make a real change in my life. Lately, I’ve just been sleep-walking through the motions. Doing all the same things I have always done. Not pushing myself to be engaged, to be focused, to be anything more than what I’ve thought I “should” be.
I’ve told most everyone about my plans, but there are probably some that I’ve missed, so this will come as a surprise to some, I’m sorry for that. I really wanted to have that conversation with as many as possible in person. But, we’re not going to dwell on the “what ifs” we’re going to celebrate all the good times we’ve had so far, all the memories we’ve made, and all the things we’ve experienced together.
I’m ready for something new. I’m ready to share this new experience and adventure with you. Stay tuned. More to come.
