The progression of my professional life hasn’t been anything I could have foreseen when I was in my 20′, my 30′s or even my 40′s…
And now that I’m in the 2nd half of my 50′s…once again it has taken a turn I didn’t foresee, predict or even necessarily desire..
But in this latest turn of events, I’ll say I’m closer to being in a place that feels right … at least in this moment.
The uncertainties will always be there – and in retrospect I see – that they have always been there. We can be lulled into a false sense of security with the day to day sameness that happens.
Make no mistake, there is no such thing as lifetime security…at least not for most people.
So finding whatever it is that “floats your boat” – for at least that particular moment in time, is a blessing. A blessing to be enjoyed and savored like a fine wine.
And I’m thankful that at this moment in time, I’ve found it.
Sometimes finding the current requires being still…because the current is so slow and calm.
And once you find that current, you may still need to put forth some serious personal energy to move down stream…
It doesn’t mean you’re not following the right current – it just means there will be times when you’ve got to do the heavy work to make the next bend in the river.
