Crossroads

A girl finds herself at the place where three roads meet, and she knows that she must travel down one of them. One leads to academia - the school to be determined according to what can be studied and/or written in three months. This road makes the Dream more possible, but it also deters it for a while. One leads across the ocean to new beginnings and cultural experiences. This road leads to immediate almost-Dream fulfillment, mistake or not. That is, it isn't the Dream exactly, but it might lead to exact-Dream fulfillment. The last road is under construction. A stop sign posted at the end of the third road prevents the girl from truly going anywhere. This one is the road of stagnation built from the status quo, from complacency. It is definitely "the responsible choice" in a capitalistic terrain.

The girl hates the idea of stagnation, but is leery of the other two choices. She wishes someone or something would push her in one direction or another, but she knows that in order to really feel comfortable, she has to carefully consider them all.

Help.

Ah Ginger I know you are ready to make a change and maybe you need to step out on faith and take that risk in order to be fulfilled and not live a life of regret!! I know it's scary, especially in our economic state!!

I too am going to have crossroads to consider at the end of this school year. It's about 85% sure that my current position will be cut next year so I am faced with lots of decisions, one possibly being making a move closer to were you are now!!!

Who knows but I am pretty sure things will be changing for me soon!

I am too much the thinker myself, and have to examine every frigging angle to death, but I only ever regret the things I don't do. Be bold!

You are a strong Woman to have accomplished all that you have already. I know if I could have had a teacher like you when I was in school I would be a lot better person and citizen then I am today. God knew what He was doing when he led you to teach (along with Rich). I am so proud of both of you. LOVE YA LOTS, ALWAYS!

On your deathbed, will your final thought be I wish.......? I offer my favourite quote:

"We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand." - Randy Pausch

Play your hand well and follow your heart!

No matter what, you will always have Dutch and I to support you in the path(s) you choose. We love you guys! Remember, every path has an exit ramp..... And decide what you want then decide what you are willing to exchange for it.
