exactly where you need to be

We spend a lot of time anticipating the future, wishing our present was different or would hurry along....perpetually drawn to thinking about what we wish for rather than what is. But, the honest truth is we are exactly where we need to be, exactly where we're meant to be, at every moment. If we were meant to be somewhere else, we'd be there. It's all part of the plan. It's all necessary. Everything will work out the way it is supposed to.

I'm writing this to remind myself, not because I believe I have all the answers to life. 

I'm in a period of great transition right now, and although I am extremely adaptable and almost addicted to change and adventure, I really do not do transitions very well. It's like my man Pablo Picasso once said: "every act of creation is first an act of destruction." Oh yes. And when it comes to my personal approach to creating something new, I am extremely destructive. I have always been an adamant believer in cleaning house.....purging the past, resolving unresolved emotions, working myself down to a blank slate that I can really create something solid and new on. But, that very approach makes for some uncomfortable transitions. I guess you could say I take change pretty seriously:)

What is there to look forward to though? For starters, my husband and I are leaving Southern Connecticut…..a place that embodies a lifestyle, set of ideals, personality, culture and landscape that are basically the exact opposite of what we want to be a part of. While the troubled economy is making our desire to move a little difficult, we are looking forward to (somehow, some way!) moving on from this chapter in our life while attempting to create a new life filled with mountains, trees, friendly faces, family, art, community and simplicity. Ahhhhh….
