I just crash landed back into reality.
The weekend was amazing and there’s much to do now that I’ve scouted the land, so to speak.
Reality is mean isn’t it?
I barely walked in the door before my mind was filled with the many things that need to happen in the coming week.
This is the trickiest part of any transition.
There’s so much to do to prepare for what’s ahead and yet you want to and need to finish well where you are.
The emotions of crash landing hit me hard.
Excitement and sadness mingle together, along with a dose of calendar reality.
Life goes on. Time ticks away. And I can’t help but wish everyone and everything would slow down for a minute.
Honestly, I have a difficult time with the messy middle of transitions.
God is so faithful, though, to walk along beside me and to encourage me to keep going, to press in.
Yes, the future is bright. Yes, there’s a lot to do.
I am choosing, however, to look ahead while soaking in the goodness of my present.
I am not leaving here in a hurry.
I will cherish the time and all the reasons I have to be thankful.
