In a blink

Sometimes, all it takes for life to change, is a blink.  A fraction of a moment and the whole scene changes.  What is, becomes a, once was.

There's been an angst in the air, undertows of change.  I'm not sure what that is but I feel it coming. 

I had a lot of time to think over the past week, clear out a little space in my head to breathe.  I don't venture into my head very often, if at all.  Like a bulldozer, I just keep moving on through, pushing aside what isn't urgent, whether it's important or not.

So, in the blink of an eye, I took a plunge and registered for school...in Alexandria, Virginia.  It all happened slowly at first...but then all at once, before I even realized what I had done, I received a scholarship, paid tuition and class starts on Monday.

I scraped together a little hope, some extra faith, a lot a prayer and now, I'm headed in a new direction into the field of Health and Wellness.  I am going to be focusing on functional medicine, not making symptoms the problem like we are so accustomed to.  I know it seems like I just decided today but I have been studying already for months and months with countless hours of research.  The idea of school has been in the back of my mind and it's taken a lot of time to find a program that I believe in.  I'm sort of creating my own niche but in a nutshell, I am combining biology and nutrition to work with people struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction, eating disorders from anorexia to overeating, MS and possibly helping people with cancer.

I'm not giving up on design.  I love being a space planner.  My job is fun to me, even energizing.  I love creating and seeing a plan on paper come to life.  I love helping people, listening and empowering them and creating homes and businesses that bring peace and joy to people.  This new adventure is something I will do in addition to design.

It feels big and scary.
