Strange as it might seem, one unsuspecting uniform – and its removal – landed one woman veteran at a crossroad of her identity, her career, and her purpose. What happens when you are faced with a decision to change? There are some circumstances we have no control over, and there are others we decide to take it upon ourselves to follow another path.
When you have been in a career most of your life, and there is a major shift which causes you to depart from everything you have ever known, now what? What about the children who go off to college and you are now an empty nester? The successful marriage you thought would be to death do us part or was it your husband’s death which left you a widow.
The nature of a woman is to nurture, to take care of, to comfort, and pay attention to others. But what if you wake up one day and there is no one around you to care for but yourself. Will you know how, would you be able to look into the mirror and identify with the person who is staring back at you? Will your purpose change?
This story of a woman’s transitional periods in life will inspire you to embrace change. If it hasn’t happened to you already, it will, change is coming.
