It’s Abby here. So excited Allie got things started off for us!
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about certainty, or more accurately, uncertainty. As a college graduate still looking for a job, there’s a stability lacking from my world. I don’t know where I’ll be 2 months from now. I could be in the exact same place. Or not. I do know though that I used to want that sameness, that 9-5 job so badly. Routine. The day to day sameness.
But life is turbulent. As much as we try to manufacture a path, one single path for all adults (job, house, marriage, kids, you know the drill…) it only makes sense that that path really doesn’t fit everyone so well. I’m just learning that. Maybe I will have all those things evenutally. But right now, no. And I should revel in that.
I won’t get these turbulent, boundless days back. They are fleeting like everything else.
There is, inside me, some wanderer. A restlessness. A desire to flee and fly. The rustle of leaves beat from my heart and I yawn the noises jetliners make — I swear.
