Is It Over or Just the Beginning
Last Tuesday I got an email with the Subject: Furlough Update. I was one of the last employees to get notified that my job was being terminated.
My time in Hawaii is over. I also knew that it was a possibility given the impact of Covid on our company. I’ve been looking for new work but still the finality left me with a sludge of feelings for a couple of days. I find endings of any kind hard.
Hawaii was an adventure for me. Something about it called to me three years ago when I was offered a job here. When I got here, I expected to find another state but soon realized it was its own country. The beauty of Hawaii softens you. It has its own rhythm whether watching a hula dancer, a surfer, or a sheer curtain dancing with the trade winds. Everything flows. I had some friends tell me who have lived here for a long time. “Hawaii’s energy has an effect on you. It will break down your armor.”
And it has and that’s a good thing. Growing is always good and some days here have been the hardest I have faced. Yes, even in Paradise. So now I am returning to the Mainland to my hometown to my family. I am excited about this next adventure because I am following my heart and soul. My head can keep me up at night if this is right or wrong but i know when I follow what calls me I can never go wrong.
Is it time for things to end? What’s calling you?
Together we journey endings and beginnings,
