Transitions for Sabrina

"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."
 Anne Bradstreet

Currently in the life of Sabrina I am entering a transitional phase. The trying thing about it is I don't really have a timeline as to when it will be complete. Of course graduation will be a signal in someways. But really, until I get a job and then start that job and get my feet wet, the transition will continue. If I had to put a time on it, I would say from now until around October. Whew! I get nervous just rereading that.

I want to share this with you all though so that you can pray for me and this time in my life. I am not exactly scared because in many ways I feel prepared. I am kinda anxious, and sometimes worried, and maybe even knit-picky and that does not help anything.

I am going to get my resume out there at a job fair specifically for Teachers and Administrators (that will be me kinda) tomorrow. It's from 10-1 and I would appreciate all prayers and positive thoughts then and throughout the next few months as I have to walk the path of uncertainty. As I know full well, it is not my favorite path. I often try to scurry off of it as soon as possible. However, there is trust and faith on that road. And I need to grow in both. So this time I am going to try and breathe deep, and not plot ways to get through quickly, and maybe even be still and find peace in the fact that I know it will all work out for good.

This time of transition can bring forth a new Sabrina. The one who will be 27 this year. The one who has spent 2 years in graduate school and has learned more about herself than she thought possible. If you want to change, well now is the time to do it, so "they" say. And I want to transition better, I don't want to repeat old patterns. Instead I want to embrace the fact that right now I cannot see my future clearly at all.....and though that is petrifying, if I am 100% transparent, I know with some grace, mercy, strength, and wisdom it can be done. Here's to the journey!

I love how you are able to convey your feelings into words. Just reading this made me flash back to my own transition periods in life. I know, as you know, that God has great things planned and laid out before you. The tough part is just being patient and keeping that peace as you find the right path to head down. I am and will continue to be praying for you my dear friend!
