Navigation

I don't know where this is.

Adulthood requires a lot of navigation. And with all that navigation comes a lot of forethought.

Right now I'm navigating the beginnings of a new relationship that is most likely heading towards marriage and house-hunting and children. And right before the New Year I'm navigating past the end of one of the most energy-sucking jobs I've ever had. I'm navigating through the dawn of my actual career, attempting to mangle all the confetti-like pieces into something solid and coherent.

Shit is a lot of work. And so I'm saying all this to say that little of what I do in this life is easy. And that even when on the cusp of amazing opportunity and incredible change it can feel kind of awkward and daunting. It DOES feels exciting. But I know that there is quite the journey before me*, quite a few steps before I reach the other side of the bridge. And then once I get there, I'll surely have some other challenge to surmount, another obstacle course to expertly navigate through.

*I know it always seems like my life is an unpredictable whirlwind, like I'm always on the cusp of some dreamy and life-altering experience, but the truth is, that's how your life becomes when you're constantly going for the gold. I'm always pushing myself and stepping out of my comfort zone. Are you?
