I tend to move every 5 years. It's not on purpose per se, but my life seems to flow in 5 year cycles. I hate moving and change is terrifying to me, but now that I have a few of these cycles under my belt, hindsight has revealed that these zigs and zags on my life journey always end up allowing me (or forcing me) to make some necessary adjustments.
As I leave full-time employment and dip my toes into a nebulous new world I wonder who the heck am i when i stop defining myself by my career or relationships? Homemaker? Artist? Educator? What do I "do" when my job is not defined by an HR handbook ?
I do know one thing...I want to simplify and be more mindful. Today's farmer's market reminded me that kind of life is out there. Inspired me to stop for a moment and just be. Just breathe. Thanks Farmer's Market for a little glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel!!
