Leaving well

There’s a fine line between endings and new beginnings

Reflections on the community I just can’t quit

Honouring the past to understand its influence on the present

This is place where I felt driven out

This is the place where I was needed, but not wanted

Caption: “Too much disruption and agitation is not good. Our cultures and behaviours don’t tolerate that. You become ‘that’ voice. People feel insecure about it. Being a change agent is exhausting and most leave. So maybe it’s culture and behaviour that need to move with the times.” by @thepagey

This is the place I chose to leave

The beginning of the next chapter

Caption: “Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamp of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach…. The world you deserve can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it’s yours.” — Ayn Rand (thank you Jo Mortimer!). Credit: quotefancy
