Looking back on milestone moments in my life I’ve always felt a certain level of excitement to the unknown. Whenever I couldn’t comfortably predict an outcome there was always a certain level of fear but also joy in not knowing what will happen next.
I think the earliest memories of the sheer joy and fear of the unknown was the start of a new school year. I’d run my hands over new pencils, tapping my finger lightly on the pointed tips. I would squeeze and then release my hold on flat pink erasers, rub my hands over two pocket folders that were shiny and uncreased. I marveled at my new scandals or brand new sneakers that were spotless in a corner next to new clothes that had tags freshly popped. A new bag pack awaited use and often was laid out next to all my new clothing and supplies.
I find myself at this place again. I’m experiencing joy to the unfamiliar as I transition out of one role and into another. The sheer joy of the unknown literally has me giddy with excitement. During quiet moments of reflection I find myself talking to God.
I’m here. I’m ready to step into the unbeknownst with my heart filled with jubilation.
