Embracing Change, Again!

Over the past couple years I’ve had to learn to embrace change, accept it and whatever new path came along with it. I actually feel a sense of freedom in knowing that I can and have done this. I won’t say I don’t have some anxiety from all the uncertainty we’ve lived with, but letting myself let go has made a huge difference for me. And more change is afoot .  . .

After several months of wondering if Thad’s employer was going to follow through with a promotion and relocation for him, he decided to stop waiting around and put some feelers out outside the company. And so last Thursday was his last day! Next Monday he starts a new job with another company that will allow him to telecommute! I think he is going to be happier (and that makes me happy!). It also means that we will stay in Michigan for the near future at least. Many of our friends were thrilled to hear this news!

With this decision also came the opportunity for Thad to pursue a dream. As I type he is in Austin, TX with Baron Baptiste for Level 1 yoga Teacher Training bootcamp! I am so incredibly proud of him and excited for him. And missing him terribly too! I know this will be a life changing experience for him and a part of me is sad that I am not there to share it with him. I look forward to hearing all about it in detail when he gets back.

I know this is not the end of big changes in store for us, but I do feel it is a positive step forward and hope for more good things to be coming our way!


  1. Congratulations to Thad! What wonderful news! But I'll miss you out here.

  2. Very happy for you guys even though a bit sad you won't be out this way again. Jackie, you are an inspiration and I will take your words of wisdom as I too may be embarking on a change.

  3. Congrats to both you and Thad. You deserve good things to happen!!
