I felt something coming, that sense that what I was about to do would bring something new but I did not expect it to be so drastic. I hadn't done anything out of the ordinary, it was a simple trip to visit friends and evolved into something much more.
It was almost like visiting my childhood home, going back to a place I had lived when I was young and innocent. The people and places were the same but it felt so foreign to me. The harder I looked for that old sense of belonging the more distant and isolated I felt.
I usually embrace change as a wonderful aspect of life, the evolution that is so vital to growth and expansion. But this was so unexpected, for something that has been such a constant in my life to suddenly feel so unfamiliar really caught me off guard.
Now I am coming to terms with what this means for my life going forward. What I thought I was moving toward has changed and now it is time for me to allow something new to begin.
