A Chance at Humble Beginnings

It’s weird to be more at peace with the unknown.

The strangest part of what the next chapter entails is the fact I am still determining who or where I want to end up. I’m still in a whole different level of exhaustion after moving out of my apartment last week (a story for another day). It’s been bizarre to slowly acclimate back to life with a predictable routine of various tasks and personal responsibilities, while also trying to attend to the reality that I need to figure out what I want to do next. There’s something at least a little unsettling about those conditions that I need to be prepared to wrestle with as I have to believe a better future will be there for me.

I have to consider this turning point in life as a new beginning. It’s sort of a chance to step back and humble my expectations. I have little to write about in large part because I’m trying to recuperate from everything these last six months (and the last bit of Chicago). But I do hope that I can make a more concerted effort to find what I want to do for the rest of this year. Hopefully, writing here can only continue to give me more direction on that front…
