Part of what makes a new beginning difficult is that it’s unknown and a shift from the normal. New things disrupt our lives and take getting used to. I’m pretty good at adjusting to changes, even embracing them, but adaptation really does take time.
I was already leaning into this new direction, anyway, but it’s become more abrupt than I would have liked. I wanted more easing into it. I wanted to take my time to learn and wade in at my own pace.
But then we don’t always get what we want.
