Thanks for this wonderful article, Gail. I have recently reached a crossroads in my own life concerning my job, and a few matters of the heart concerning someone I'm deeply attracted to. Some of it I have been able to deal with, but it has been a process as opposed to being an instantaneous "there, I'm done" kind of thing. I have aspirations to further my education and move my life in a new direction, but I'm not sure how I'm going to make it all happen. I admit, when I look at the price tag, I wonder how I'm going to finance this new direction. I'm also really beginning to wonder if love has truly passed me by. I've realized I don't know any of these things for sure or what's going to happen, and I'm starting to become more and more okay with not knowing. The best I can do is keep my intentions front and centre and know they will happen somehow, and move forward with love and hope in my heart. I feel good about this new direction I've chosen, and maybe that's all I need for right now. Your article came along at just the right time ... truly a beautiful piece of writing. Thank you!
