It’s Saturday, and the first day of a new year. It never ceases to amaze me the simple rollover to a new year can rejuvenate the batteries with hope and aspirations for all things new, and to reflect on the year before.
2010 for me can be summed up in one word: change. I returned to the office after a 15+ year sabbatical, and realized that I’d actually honed some skills being a stay at home mom. My baby turned 8 and reached some major milestones himself, my daughter breached the teen barrier and my husband took a new job in another state. Definitely a year of change.
To any who know the details of our move, they might ask why. Why did we choose to leave a great home, great job and everything typically identified as the good life and satisfaction? I think progress sums it up. It wasn’t a decision made lightly. We took the offer because it was even better and it gave Blake the opportunity to explore the next realm of his field – mobile gaming. It was also a calculated decision that we feel can help us reach future goals. I’m a big believer that you don’t get direction until you move your feet. 2010 was a big year of moving our feet. I’m looking forward to what direction 2011 brings. I’m going to go buy some track shoes.
