Shaken, And Stirred

Last night there was an earthquake at about 5:40 AM EST. It went down like this:
*wake up*
“It feels like the apartment is shaking, is this an earthquake?”
“No, this is Indiana it’s got to be another wind storm like we always have.”
*looks out window*
“Ok, so it’s an earthquake”
*count the seconds*
“Seven or so I’d say”

And then I felt that it would have been nice to be able to hold someone. To tell and be told that “It will be alright. The ground does that sometimes.” I think it’s funny because my biggest opposition in the past to looking for jobs in Silicon Valley and other regions in California is that I don’t want to deal with earthquakes. I think Indiana is letting me know that it’s ok to be afraid, just don’t let that fear paralyze you.

    Isn’t funny how the world shows us where we need to be and what is holding us back from being there?

    I feel like this entire year has been posted with signs pointing in the direction that I need to travel:)

    NOTHING happens without REASON. But it’s what you do with the knowledge gained from these occurrences that determine where and how far you will go…
