A lot of things are changing for me and many others this month of June.
We have resident physicians graduating and going on to become independent doctors.
Some people are moving on to new job positions, offices, careers, workplaces, or even retirement.
The weather, though inconsistent, does feel mainly like summer and with it the optimism of preparing for something new.
Make no mistake.
Obstacles are still popping up from time to time.
Fires still have to be put out.
But with it all, I feel extremely positive.
Grateful for what has been accomplished in the past. Proud of the lives touched. Warmed by the people who have allowed me in their circle at different phases of my life.
I’m sitting here in my home.
Preparing to go to work.
And I am excited about the future which is abstract, unpredictable and at times downright scary.
Yet I embrace the new.
Bring it on.
