Celebrate: Final Countdown

November 13, 2013

Today is my last day at the Beacon and I know it will be bittersweet. Change happens—we can embrace change and grow or deny change and be buried. I choose to grow on.

Today I’m celebrating change and the beneficial time I have spent at the newspaper. I’m celebrating my health—the antibiotics are doing their work and I’m feeling almost back to normal. I’m celebrating dodging bullets, new books and new friends.

I’m celebrating that I have so much to celebrate.

    It’s exciting and a bit scary to change things in your life, but you’re totally right about the importance of change and growth. Without it we stagnate. Good luck on your new ventures!
