My life is pretty different lately.
I did not end up returning to law school for my second semester. It was a bit of a shock and I am still adjusting. I will not bore you with the details or decision making process, but I believe this was the best choice for me.
I did end up accepting a full-time position at Summit, my climbing gym and place of work for the past year. I was thrilled at this opportunity, and my first few weeks serving as the assistant general manager at my home gym has been a great experience.
I did not really plan or expect for either of these life-changing events to occur.
But they did.
And here we are now, weeks into these changes, and I feel grateful!
I used to think I was resistant to change.
And I definitely still am in a lot of ways: I don’t love goodbyes. I don’t love big moves (metaphorical or geographical). I don’t love starting over.
But the older I grow and wiser I become, the more I realize change isn’t harmful, it’s transformational.
Staying still, staying in the same place, staying stagnant never helped me. Saying yes to the old and no to the new never helped me. Oppositely, when I leapt into the unknown, when I said yes to something new, when I dared to be different, my life has always changed for the better.
I’ll be real with you: I’m scared.
I dreamt and planned to be an attorney for years. And now I am not quite sure what is in store.
But I’m also thrilled, excited, beaming! To continue working for a company I love, to keep hyping up rock climbing, to keep welcoming new faces into the climbing community. This new job has been the greatest gift of 2021 thus far.
I talk a lot about hope and expectation in this space. Even though my life is veering in a direction I didn’t predict, I still have hope, I am still expectant of a bright future and good things to come.
I am excited to continue sharing my story, my life, my heart with you. I’m excited to share all of the good things to come.
