I am doing my best to not look in the rear view mirror but am focusing instead on the future. It's only been 48 hours so I will allow myself the occasional panic moment but not for very much longer. Michael has been hugely supportive and I think he is excited for what this may mean for our relationship and our family. As anyone who is part of a 2 working spouse family knows, it is an incredibly difficult lifestyle to lead. We have even had conversations over the last month about me phasing to a part-time position. All this does is speed up the timetable. My choice to be unemployed? No. Something I wanted? To be honest, yes. Do I wish it happened on my terms? Of course. But it didn't and I am getting OK with that.
So the question I now get to address is: What do I want to be when I grow up? For this next phase of my life? Everyone always talks about pursuing what you love in life and everything will fall into place. What do I love? That's easy: training, mentoring, and racing. So if you need a training buddy, give me a call (PIC that means you). If you are looking for a mentor/coach, drop me an email. Race season is almost here:)
I'm trading in my high heels for running shoes. My work wardrobe will now consist of training gear. This could be fun.
Here's to my re-focus on my existing status:
Oh the possibilities.
