This week’s Five Minute Friday word is ‘Surprise.” **Make sure to click on the image above to find other great posts from the linkup.** Here goes:
Sometimes your life is going along smoothly and predictably and then, surprise, it turns out God might have something else in store for you instead. I kind of feel like that is what happened to me over this last week in regards to my job.
It all started with a chance conversation with someone. I wasn’t even sure how much to share when she asked me what it was I did for work. But I told her and then something prompted me to say, “But I really like writing too and would love to do something more with that someday.” Her response to that simple statement of mine has caused me to rethink the possibilities in my career path.
This all certainly came as a surprise since I hadn’t exactly been thinking of switching anything up job-wise anytime soon. But I guess it has made me realize that chance encounters and a simple start to a conversation can really be what changes the whole course of a life. So will anything come out of this for me? Only time will tell.
