A written record of your own life can be surprising.

Reading back over my posts of the last four years reveals this movement that I did not realize had been so intentional.  These desires I was having, moving to decisions made, causing tangible results.  It's fascinating.

I wasn't happy with where I was so I made some changes - had some set backs - but ultimately landed (more or less) exactly where I wanted to be.

It's extremely reassuring.  The only thing that hasn't really pieced together like I would have hoped is the relational side of things.  But relationships aren't like careers and life moves.  They tend to be much more finicky.  Though I have improved by leaps and bounds.

It has taken time.

The first two years in Denver felt like a lifetime, and the last four (nearly) have felt like a blur.

It makes me all the more excited for what is to come.  Between traveling, and relocating.  I am curious to see when I will once again be looking back and reflecting on what I have accomplished.  And at that time how far I will still feel from where I need to be.
