The past couple of weeks I have had the desire to leave Charlotte. This desire comes up every once in a while but for some reason last week it hit me really hard. I was ready to call my aunt and uncle in Normal, IL and tell them to look for job openings there because I just wanted to get out of Charlotte. (I started saying “ABC= Anywhere But Charlotte”.) Then I thought hmmm… I am meeting friends all over the place maybe DC would be a good place to move to. Really, I was ready to move north. And for those of you that know me well, know that moving north is NOT something I long to do! I do not like being cold. I actually enjoy the warmth of summer. If I could make it summer 9 out of the 12 months here in Charlotte I would… December, January and February can be cool but that’s it! 😉
There’s a restlessness within me that I can seem to shake at the moment. I feel stuck. Feeling restless and stuck at the same time is always a recipe in my world for hiding out. This weekend I will head to Boone, NC to spend time with a friend which will give me a break from all the craziness in my world. I won’t be hiding out! 🙂
Honestly, I’m wanting things to change in my world. For some odd reason I have always thrived on change. It doesn’t scare me as much as it does others. Mainly because I see it as a challenge.
Restlessness = Rumbling in my soul
So I am waiting patiently not so patiently at the moment, to see what the next step is.
Psalm 27:14 “Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage. And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord.”
Are you doing anything exciting this weekend?
