I looked at my last post date and it was a month ago. How does a month go by so quickly? What work have I really gotten done? I had another month added on to my leave and yet I’m still here in this emotional wonderland.
Why wonderland? If you look at Alice in Wonderland, she is in a crazy mixed up world. A world that doesn’t quite make sense. A world in which she needs to discover herself, and how to “escape” or “get back home.” It’s a place full of twists and turns and confusion. She’s not sure who she can trust or what she should do. She tries everything. Follows someone who seems to know their way. Listens to someone who seems wise. Tries to make friends and adapt.
It just came into my mind that this time has been that for me. These past three years have been a time of growth and change, adapting to a new environment, confusion, wondering where I am, who I am and what my purpose is. I feel like I will always have times in my life where I’m questioning these things. Next really is to figure out what I need to do get to my next path.
As the caterpillar asked, “who are you?”
Side note: started preparing for next trip. 🙂
