So, I did a thing today.
I resigned from my job.
When it comes to taking leaps of faith, this may very well be the biggest one I’ve ever taken. Like, I probably need to stretch these old legs before I attempt this grand jeté.
In the past, whenever I’ve made a big decision, I knew that there was something else coming down the pipeline for me. A surefire step that I would easily transition into.
And because I knew what was next, it gave me the confidence to let go of what I had.
But this time, it’s different.
This time, I’m stepping out into the unknown. Onto a staircase that I can’t see. And if I can’t see it, how do I know it’s really there?
This certainly is a new season for me — one that leaves me both excited and terrified.
I am constantly casting down doubts of my worth in this calling.
Because I’m human. And those thoughts are there.
But with that, I am also reminded that God doesn’t call the equipped.
He equips the called.
So here I am, Lord!
After 4 years, 8 months and 4 days (yes, I counted), I’ve closed a chapter that has been such a big part of my young adult life.
The chapter that began after a 5-month long frustrating job search.
The chapter that started one month after I launched this blog.
The chapter that was, but is no more.
Today is a bittersweet symphony, my friends.
But tomorrow, we get to work.
To the work family that I leave behind,
You all have shown such faith in me, in a time when mine was scarce.
Thank you for the belly laughs, the ugly cries, the dance parties, the prayers, the lessons learned and the words of encouragement.
I love you all.
So here’s to you, one last time…
I am Kaitlin Walden, and I am #DriventoDelight!
