The second reason is that I've been contemplating a fairly big change in my life.
I've never been terribly good at change. It is much easier to live comfortably in the rut I have dug for myself over the last few years. And while I know that I will eventually build a new rut, for a little while life will probably be uncomfortable and complicated. *wrinkled nose* I don't like to be uncomfortable.
But (big breath) I've decided to bite the bullet, and this week I have been job hunting. My plan is to fling as many doors open as I can and see which ones God opens and which he closes.
