Looking over the edge

Posted: April 23, 2007 in Uncategorized

The wheels have been put in motion at work for me to move to Australia, and with that have also started the hours spent lying awake in bed wondering if I’m doing the right thing. Much like the picture above, this is a safe jump, and I won’t plummet off the edge with nothing certain to catch me, but if I don’t like where I’ve landed, there’s no clear way back. Part of me wants to see it turned down, just so I can feel I did what I could, but still won’t be thrust into the unknown. The other part of me feels I’ve put off major changes for too long, and I need to make sure I don’t shy away from this just because it makes me uneasy. It’s so easy for me to stay where I am, letting nothing change year after year; I have to not let complacency dictate my future. I am casting myself off the cliff, but do so facing forward.

The whole thing is still a “maybe”, pending internal company processes, which are always notoriously slow. So for now, I’m just left to wait and ponder.
