New adventure? I keep peeking back.
“You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place, I told him, like you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again.”
― Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in Tehran
It’s ok. I don’t mind something new. But it’s like jumping from stone to stone over a stream. You’re never quite sure about the next stone ’til you land. I’ll adjust to the new stone when I land. I know that. The feeling mid air ..that’s what I’m not too crazy about.
I’ve been through knowing I’ll “never be this way again” and that’s ok too. I will take that part of me and build on it or around it. Right now I’m just not sure where I’m heading. I’ve got to take that step out my door…just not today. Today I am still peeking back while I look for a direction to head forward.
