Lucky in Life

I have been extremely lucky in that, throughout my life, people and opportunities have appeared at a time when I needed them most. The other day was no exception.

I made a decision a while ago that I was going to take the risk and change jobs. Despite the fact that I was making good money, not working weekends (that says a lot for a nurse), and moving on up in the ranks of a stable job.

 As I look at my life, I am appreciative that I have a wonderful husband, a supportive family and amazing friends. I am happy. However, as I age I become more conscious of the fact that life is short.


With that in mind, I made the change and immediately after experienced lots of feelings of elation and excitement, swiftly followed by anxiety, guilt and self-doubt. It has been an emotional roller coaster.

The other day I had the opportunity that I hadn’t previously considered as I didn’t believe it was available to me. I found myself in the right place at the right time and yes, I was scared, but after the experience I knew that what I am doing is the right thing.

Occasionally there are still some small feelings of doubt, but at least I know that I have the support of the ones I care the most about.

That is what life is all about.


What about you guys? 
Have you changed directions in life?

  1. Oh I'm in the process of considering changing life careers. The teaching thing just isn't happening but I'm not sure what I could go do. I'm glad your change was very positive!

  2. Back when the housing market crashed, I was let go from my architecture job. It was sort of a blessing in disguise, because I wasn't really happy with the path I was on. After that we moved to a new state, I worked in retail for a while, and now I'm a stay at home mom. I read something a while ago that talked about the average number of career changes people have... it's quite a few. Do what you enjoy! Life is too short. :-)
