Taking a Leap of Faith

Pardon my ignorance, but I must admit that I have never before imagined that you could actually grill pastry.  I never thought that fresh butter slowly melting on top of grilled pastry can be such a delectable delight.  It was a friend from work who introduced me to this sweet indulgence a week ago, and I must say that I am now a fan.

The sweet has suddenly turned sour when he told me he was leaving his job for a better opportunity elsewhere.  I will miss him not only because there will no longer be a delicious piece of hunky meat walking around the office, but also because on a few occasions, he has been my confidante.  His IT expertise has rolled over to the love department, and I have been a regular customer.

And then, the sour now turns into flavorful.  It is his moving on which has served as a springboard for me to finally think about my goals for the future.  A few posts back, I wrote about my thoughts on turning into a full-time work-at-home mom, and he was one of those who felt strongly about it.  We started out at this company at about the same time, and he identified with how burned out I felt at work.  His leaving now inspires me to act towards achieving my goals.  If he could do it, so can I.

When I wrote that post, I was still uncertain about what to do, but things are starting to become clearer now.  I will not bore you with the details of my goals (because even I bore myself sometimes!), but let me just say that I now have an action plan of sorts.  I also considered the various comments left by my lovely readers in coming up with a decision of what to do with my life.

Timing is everything.  Prayer will help see me through.  Things may not go as planned, but I have faith that an Invisible Hand will guide me.
