Season’s Greetings!

Sorry you haven’t heard from me in a while. I promise, I’m here to stay!

In the last month, I have moved out of the home I have known for the past twenty years, finished school for the near future, and happened upon a real job in which I have to think. It’s like my grew up in the last few weeks without me and I’m not quite sure how I feel about that yet.

It’s exciting–don’t get me wrong–but it’s weird.

I feel like I’ve written so much on this blog on stages of life and the shift from one to another. Writing about it and watching it happen practically overnight are two very different things.
Some of it’s scary, some of it overwhelming, but at the end of the day, things are good. I am cared for. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places.

So often at work, I feel so clueless. Learning to ask for help is hard. Especially when I am trying to impress the people I work for. But here’s the thing: Part of being good at what you do is knowing when to ask for help.

I have been blessed by a wonderful supervisor who is patient and encouraging. The publishing world is fairly new to me, especially in the obscure corner the company I work for is dabbling in. Every day is a new challenge. Some of them hard, some of them exciting, all of them what I’ve needed. God is providing for me in such wonderful and unexpected ways.

It’s humbling. It’s a learning experience. And it’s good. Hard, but really healthy. I’ve been given an arena to trust God in and I need to be faithful to that.

It’s a new season and I’m ready to embrace that.

I have now found myself with lots of wonderful time to write and embark on some new projects. I still won’t be up to a consistent two posts a week yet, but at least one. I won’t be leaving you cold-turkey again for a while… or at least without warning.

I just wanted to drop a line to say hello! I’ve missed you all. It feels good to be back in Preppy Bohemia.

xo,

    Happy Christmas to you, and congratulations on this new season! They are indeed as much exciting as they are scary, and you've communicated that so well here. Your adventurous tone is infectious. So glad that you're cherishing all the new, scary, hard, lovely things God is doing with you right now!
