Almost Ready

First. Not Last.

Ever since I was a kid, I always marked the "Last" of everything.

Last day of Summer. Last day of the year. Last day of 8th grade. Last day at each job I held. 

Nothing's changed and I find myself counting down the days as I prepare to leave my current job and state...1 more day at the job (Thursday) and 7 more days in the state - in case you want to count along with me.

Tonite it occured to me that I've had it backwards all my life. Why have I not made the emphasis on the "First"?  The start of something new? The excitement that comes with new beginnings, new surroundings, new experiences? What's up with that, Kath?

Honestly don't know why I've made endings so significant, but I do know that as of this second, I'm switching up my perception to focus on the firsts...and the future.
