A bend in my road...

Today's post reminds me of a song by Green Day. The opening lines are: Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go So make the best of this test, and don't ask why It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right, I hope you had the time of your life. I am at a turning point, a crossroad so to speak. For the last two years, I have worked two jobs, a part-time one being at an assisted living facility that also has a wing for Alzheimer's residents. I have been there for a few years and have learned so much about the end of life process. It is equally as important as the beginning of life entry of birth. I have learned about the different types of dementia and working with the elderly. All of this compiled with developing relationships with family members and staff has given me so many opportunities and lessons in life. As enlightening as the experience has been, sometimes we also need to listen to our inner voice or spirit guides who tell us that it is time to step away. That is what I am doing. I have been promoted at my primary full-time job and with that will come new responsibilities. I also have learned from my mother's death that time is precious and life is fleeting. I haven't had weekends off in over two years. I am going to take some time, re-acquaint myself with myself, my home and family. I will take time, be still and enjoy the small details of this trip around the sun. Looking forward to what new adventures lie ahead. I am taking a leap of faith and trusting my journey! Keep Smiling! :)
