Two weeks ago today, I resigned from my current job and gave 4 weeks' notice. I have two weeks left. In July, I will begin a new journey - head first in the field of grief and loss - as a Hospice Social Worker for a large health network. I'm excited. Helping people as they die, helping people as they cope with the death of those they love, walking through the bereavement process day after day - those are the things I know I can offer with compassion and skill.

It's bittersweet. I will miss my current place of employment, my current co-workers, and the residents I serve. But for multiple reasons, it's time to move on. 

This new position is one of many changes to come. There's more in store and probably more to say. Stay tuned. My blogging days aren't over.

On the Brink

There are things to share. The journey hasn't ended simply because I hit a year and stopped writing daily. 

Changes are brewing. Everything is swimming around...but at the same time, everything is opening up - a wide expanse of opportunity. And even on top of that, things are falling into place. I'm not exactly sure how those three things can happen all at once, but they are.

I think back to what I was doing and how I was feeling this time last year. Oh my...what a different story was being told. I was navigating my way through my first month as a widow, shell-shocked and dazed, overwhelmed and raw with pain and disbelief. 

This June is significantly much so that I feel I've lived at least 3 lifetimes since this time last year. 

Life continues to amaze me. And surprise me. And comfort me.

I have things to share. Stay tuned.
