The first day of the rest of my life!!

Today I said goodbye to everything that has been my life for the past 2+ years, and hello to everything my life still has yet to be.

I said goodbye to an office that was more or less been my home away from home, many hours of work (or golf) was logged….

I said goodbye to friends that have become so much a part of me and my life.

Friends that have stepped in as my Oklahoma Momma and have held me up during my most challenging days…………

Friends that simply made me laugh………….

Friends that provide support in times of doubt………..

Friends that exuded a calming spirit………..

I said goodbye to friends, one of the hardest things to say goodbye to.

I said goodbye to bosses, co-workers, and an office filled with more dynamic than a Sigmund Freud study.

Amidst all the goodbyes I did not lose track to what I was getting ready to say hello to.

Next Wednesday I will be welcoming the rest of my life. A life I hope is full of passion, zest, promise, giving, and a sense of accomplishment. A life full of open doors, answered prayers, challenging opportunities, and bonds made. We all have the opportunity to grab tight to new adventures and to let those adventures change our life.

What an amazing sight to sit back and watch your life begin to fall together and what peace you find when God is the one opening the doors for us to walk through, rather than us forcing our way through closed doors we feel should be open.
