Well, I didn't expect the transition from one job to another to be as unsettling as it has been. I have had the exact same schedule every week for the last ten years and came to rely on the regularity. It will take time to find my equilibrium but I know it will come. Equilibrium is so much easier in the water....floating on top or under the water....letting the water support you. The water has been my friend throughout my synchronized swimming career and for the last 7 years of teaching swim lessons. If I "Let go and let God" I will stay afloat. Panic leads to sinking. Trusting the water to support me financially is my ultimate goal.
I finally let go of my steady, familiar trapeze and am swinging through mid air for the next few weeks until I catch hold of my new trapeze. Many thanks to all of the families that I know are out there rooting for me and holding an imaginary net. If you haven't listened to Fran McKendree's song about the transitions in life please do so!

Special thanks to my husband Jim, who is supporting me 150% and cheering me on!
