i did it.

September 1, 2010

here’s the thing…i live in a dream world. i don’t mean the dream world
that you float into after drifting off into a delicious sleep. i mean a real
world where every day holds the possibility of enchantment, discovery,
unexpected adventure (!). here, let me show you —

in the last 8 weeks i flirted with the following  (in no particular order):

1. going  wwoofing in greece
2. au pair(ing) in sweden like my fearless friend
3. getting my masters in social work in a weird city
4. training to be a yogi
5. ending human trafficking with friends
6. learning wilderness skills and guide in the smoky mountains (what?)
7. going to chef school down under

all amazing options & all with a big, amazing BUT.

you see, in order to do any, i would have to leave my amazing job.
the job that God, in His faithfulness brought me to when i was SO lost.
the job that taught me SO much about the world out there. yea, that job.
the job that i now feel God pulling me out of. wait a minute – what will i do?!
i wasn’t sure i wanted to know. i dream, but it doesn’t always mean i act.
i was like lot’s wife — hesitant to move forward, but knowing i can’t stay put.
i don’t pretend to know everything about God, but i do know a few things –
His least favorite temp is lukewarm and His pet peeve is a fence-rider.
i’ll let you in on one of His likes: break-neck, all-out, %100 commitment.
so, i did it. i resigned. no, not my two-week notice, try two-month notice.
baby steps, friend. this whole blind obedience is new for me, ya know?
this is where i’m at and if it leads to any of the above, AWESOME.
if not, God will still be awesome.
watch out world, here i come.(holding God’s hand of course).

“remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. behold,
i am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
i will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”

-isaiah 43:18-19 (thanks God)
