Change is good. That's what they always say. I am petrified of change...I try to stay away from it as much as I can. You have given inspiration to a gal who hates change...You will be fine. You will do your thing the best way you can, and if writing is what your new job is about...You are gonna kick...butt...You're amazing!

I have also just moved and changed my intended career path. I thought my last home was the one I was going to grow old in, that I was going to continue with my business part time and be a part-time homesteader. Now I'm in a different state working WITH my husband in our retail store (we divide our time at home and store so we don't have to be with each other twenty four hours a day) and I've learned a lot from this whole huge change. Pretty much the same as you've learned. I learned that it's not important to live in one place forever, it's important to be flexible with your direction in life to accomodate all the unexpected turns, if you follow your gut you will most likely continue to find yourself in situations that are good for you, even if they aren't what you expected.

Maybe this new job is important to help you hone your professional writing skills that you will need for some larger more personal project in the future. Maybe when you don't have two house payments any more you will end up achieving the other dream, the one you had to let go of in order to keep yourself financially afloat. Or maybe the way things are unfolding for you and your family right now is exactly how it's going to be for a long time because you all find great satisfaciton in it. Who knows? You will, in time.

I have learned now not to worry about it. I keep building new ideas of how I would like my future and let it unfold as it needs to. I'm strangely at peace with that. A very new thing for me.

Lots and lots of luck Kelly!!!

Good luck with your new life! I really respect the fact that you took risks, changed your lifestyle, and now are changing it again.

Hugs to you, Kelly! Doubting ourselves every now and then is what we moms do best, don'tcha think? Change is exciting! Good things always come out of change, even if it's "just" a real good life lesson. And it's never too late to come Full Circle and (finally) end up doing what you dreamed of doing decades ago. I'm living proof. Best wishes to you all!
