When I went to Texas I knew I'd leave after four years of college...I knew I'd leave Chile after the summer ended...I knew I'd leave D.C. after 10 weeks of my internship...and I knew I'd leave Utah after only one year. But this change doesn't have that aspect. I'm going to D.C. to start work...the end.
Does it scare me? Honestly, not at all. (Which I find to be a little strange.) But the truth is I'm not scared. In fact, I kind of like it. It's nice. Yeah, in some ways I want to plan the next five years of my life...or at least the next two. Everyone likes having some sort of plan. But on the other hand, I like the unknown. I like having the option to go wherever. Maybe I'll stay at this job for ten years? Maybe I'll leave after one? Or maybe I'll start coaching soccer? Or start a business? Or run a marathon in my free time? Or serve a mission? Or go back and visit my Chilean family? Or so many gazillion possibilities. Ahh yes, I love it.
No definite end. A new beginning. So many possibilities. And if there's one place for this change, what better place to be than our nation's capital?
After all, who wouldn't want to drive by all of this on the way to work each day?
