As I mentioned in previous posts (and subsequent therapy sessions), I have been in a transitional state for the past few months. I have changed professions, moved and basically adopted a lifestyle that, while quite the norm for the majority of our population, has been, up until this point, completely foreign to me. And though I believe that I made the right decision (or at least the grownup one), I am still having trouble fitting in. I was in the same home for over ten years, in the same industry for even longer. I knew my place. I had my stuff. You know, like my favorite sandwich shop, side-street shortcuts and blowdry bar. Things weren’t always easy, but they were comfortable. And maybe that isn’t such a good thing. I mean, I wanted to start a blog for a good couple of years before I actually launched last summer. But I was scared. I didn’t really know anyone else in the industry, didn’t know the first thing about developing a website, frankly didn’t know anything about anything. All I knew is that is was something I thought I’d enjoy and that I might be good at. I hadn’t the faintest idea what I was doing, but I did it anyhow because it felt right. And here I am now, slowly turning this little hobby into a full-fledged career. I still don’t know what I’m doing. I just know that I love it, I’m having a good time and I feel like I’m doing exactly what I was meant to do. And that’s good enough for me. So I suppose that brings me back to my current “outsider” status. I made the move, the changes, everything because they seemed like the right thing to do at the time. And though I’m still struggling to find exactly where it is that I fit in here, if it’s anything like my blog, I am pretty sure that the clarity and comfort will come. It is all just a matter of time.
