It’s a big change you’re making in your life. A step into the unknown. A moment of redefinition.
People are telling you what it is you’re supposed to be doing. And you’re not quite sure – you’ve been doing this thing for so long. Can you do something new now?
What if you don’t like it? What if you change your mind? Will it be hard to find a new meaning? A new purpose?
Can you really do this?
Know what I think? I think: Yes, you can.
It will be hard, but you will do it.
And it will be what you make it. So make it what you want.
Stay true to yourself.
Play to your strengths. Which include integrity, insight and a wicked sense of humor. And a connected circle of deeply loyal family, friends and supporters.
You know this.
Sure, you are leaving one sure thing and going to another unsure thing, but you’re not alone. You’ve got people, my friend.
And these are the ties that bind. And they will bind to you regardless of your job title, or how you spend your day, or where you go.
If you let them, it’s your people that will guide you through to your next great thing. Because I have a hunch that there is a next great thing out there for you, just waiting to be discovered.
What an amazing, life-changing prospect.
You’re a modern day Magellan, charting your own course. On a fantastic voyage of discovery.
Go on, then. Make your mark. Write your history. I’ll be right here, cheering you on every step of the way.
