I'm on the precipice of major change in my life. This change is necessary and I should embrace it, but to be honest, I'm feeling anxious. New job. New city. New house, or most likely an apartment for a while. A downsizing and a decontenting.
It's hard not to agonize about these decisions. I'm not presented with three jobs at the same time and get to pick the best one. I might accept a job that looks good, only to be offered my dream job the next week. The question swirling in my head: "Is this the right move for me or am I settling?
I know that six months after the change I'll feel more comfortable. And I know that whatever I decide to do will not fall into place perfectly on its own. I need to make the change work for me.
So many people go through life with no change. Same location. Same job. For their entire lives. Inertia, but not necessarily bad.
I'm thinking hard about priorities in my life. Two that immediately come to mind: Staying close to my kids and family. Work-life balance.
