I took a winter walk into town yesterday as the snow fell in great flakes around me. The street was soft and soapy with salt, and the world looked slightly happier and cozy as I walked toward a major unknown in my life.
My mission was one-fold: to gird my loins for battle in the professional world. Ever been there? Most have, I'd think; especially in these economically distressing times.
Well, yesterday it was my turn to be brave and take a step into the unknown. (ugh). I was so glad to have the falling snow as a friend.
I thought to myself as I walked that this is the beginning of something new. The Chinese say that crisis is opportunity...Take a step forward, Allison!
Good things have always happened to me when it snows... and today the time is ripe. Wish me luck and a good dose of courage!
