quietly honoring freedom

it's been a little over a year since i left a job that was very important to me.  i grieved more than i thought i would.  but it remains one of the best decisions i've ever made.

it's been a little over a year without:
  • being angry at another person
  • trying desperately to figure out the game everyone but me seemed to know how to play
  • being asked on a regular basis to "redefine" my integrity
  • playing dumb so as not to offend anyone
  • living in fear that this was all there was
  • trying to make something fit that just did not fit (i.e. me)
i am so grateful to live in a nation where there are opportunities to risk, to grow, to make changes.  i am grateful to now work with creative, authentic people who see the world pretty much the same way that i do and embrace our differences as interesting sparks that make life beautiful.

happy independence day.
