    What a stunning poem. I resolve to remember its words. All the best with walking into the mist and embracing change, Hannah – as always you are an inspiration. (OMG could this comment be any soppier, but it’s how I feel about you, so there we have it.)

    “… become the wind.” A surefire way to disperse the mists 🙂 Wherever you go and whatever you do you’ll take that wonderful Polyanna-like personality with you so you’ll be fine.

    I love that line ‘is it safer to be gray and numb’. Safer, yes, but also…gray and numb.

    I think your last year has generated quite a lot of evidence for the notion that change can bring good things. Here’s to your next 12 months being equally magical.

    Goodness gracious what beautiful words thank you Hannah. I, too, have been skirting around Big Change for a while now and I know it’s time to move in the wind. Endings are beginnings xxx

    Miss Spay Lady, I’m certain you’ll make a good decision whichever way you may choose to go. Change is indeed a good thing! Looking forward to reading about your next step! 🙂

    “Hopes and dreams and longings and anxiety and wishes”… those are all swirling inside me, too, ever so often. Though I’m not as brave as you are. I trust you to do the right thing, lady. x

    Change is only a new beginning, right? I don’t mind change, rather it is associated uncertainty that strikes fear in my heart. Not sure if I will ever become better at managing that. 😉

    I think it’s safe to say that this is the “changey-est” year of my life as well. It’s exciting though, isn’t it? I hope all the new things in your life are welcome additions that bring you joy.

    I’m new to your blog, so I don’t know what change you’re going through, but that was a good poem. Was totally not expecting to like it.

    More changes? It does seem you’ve had so many in the past nine months. I’m confident you’ll make the right decision. Happy Easter xx

    I’m someone who reckons that change sucks but I am also aware that change can be good for the most part. No doubt that there are interesting times ahead for you, Hannah, but I know you’ll be fine 🙂 x

    Hannah, you are just a sweet and lovely and thoughtful person. I understand where you’re coming from and where you’re headed. I’m there with you. It’s crazy/frightening/enlightening/exciting. We can travel through those mists together 🙂 And conquer, obviously.

    Poor Daphne.. that’s always been the saddest story for me.. it wasn’t even her fault! I got sidetrack… 😛

    Change is indeed sweet. It’s scary but exciting and wonderful and helps you grow. And as long as your heart is hungry and open…well, then good things, by dear, good things… I am excited for you, whatever change is coming!

    “Every happiness is the child of a separation
    it did not think it could survive”

    This is scary but right … Most (all) separations are (can be) good, I think, though sometimes not separating can also be good. It’s all in the timing and the mindset, if that makes sense.

    Nice post Hannah …
