In Search Of....Erin categorized her post this morning as "In Search of a Remarkable Life." I read her post on my crackberry (which I would dearly love to chuck off a bridge) this morning on the metro as I rode into work. It struck a chord - what am I in search of? As with so many "big questions," the answer to this one came to me as soon as I articulated the question.
I am in search of contentment.
I've been thinking recently about how this is a year of waiting things out. I am not content in my professional life, but cannot make a change until I have a year or so under my belt. Some big changes are in the works in other aspects of my life as well, but those too involve waiting and some uncertainty. And I realized as I sat on the metro that what I am ultimately seeking is to be somewhere, personally and professionally, where I can see myself living the same basic life for the foreseeable future. I want a life where I don't have to have a "this will be over by...." date in order to get through the week.
Will I find that contentment? I think so.... just not quite yet!
