Today marks two years since I left my 10-year career and stepped out of that beautiful and safe, yet often suffocating space.
It is true, it took incredible courage for me to make the first step. What is also true is that it has taken more than courage to take the second… and the 1,0000000000th step.
It has taken radical trust to keep walking as my path narrows.
to sit down when I am tired.
to change course after the 1,000000000th step.
In the last two years, there have been a few days where it all has been crystal clear.
Truth is though, most days and moments I am literally “walking by faith, not by sight.”
I am on a faith walk.
To be and stay on this course is to be both battered and kissed by wind, worn and cleansed by rain, burned and warmed by sun light. To trip and fall down over smooth trails.
It is to be picked up and carried over the roughest of terrain.
