The picture captures what I am feeling at the moment.
I have came a long way, and I am somewhat hesitant to see what is up ahead of me.
I am in a new chapter of life.
No longer a student.
Now a professional adult.
With that transition happening now, I find myself in odd places--
Novice, but certified interpreter with a master's degree...
Job assignments beckon, yet I have no guarantee of a salary...
Young, but confident.
Too easy for me to take those wonderful experiences for granted,
And I try to remind myself-- that I have came far and I should enjoy my successes gracefully.
I always feel life is short when I should realize I do have a long life ahead of me.
I look forward
to that next step.
