As you may know, I’m in a bit of a disruptive state myself. I just moved to California for a new job, and for the next few weeks, I live in a teepee while hubby packs up our home, our cats and our entire life in Portland. It is very lonely and very hard and I was totally unprepared for the culture shock I’d feel from moving just one state south (things I’ve recently learned about California: amazing Mexican food, pervasive car culture, way more sunshine, and… dress shorts???). But it is also exactly what I need to do, not in spite of the fact that it’s hard but rather because of it.
Blogger Whitney Johnson remarks about disruption that “if it feels scary and lonely, you’re probably on the right track.” And that, especially, is why we must cherish the truly good days, the days when things make sense and the world doesn’t seem cold, confusing and uncertain. When the going again gets hard and your path seems strewn with obstacles, you can draw on the memory of good days like water from a spring, and they will carry you through.
Hold them close, these scarce, exquisite, priceless days. You will need them. And that is how you will know that your path is worthwhile.
