Taking that leap today.

Yesterday, I was home from work sick with a terrible migraine, thankfully, as the day went on, it got to be more bearable. I was able to even get a work out in and cook dinner! Then think about a big decision that has been on my mind recently.
You see, nearly two weeks ago I was approached at work with an interesting job offer. This was completely unexpected. I mean, I've worked hard at my job and I have to say I'm pretty good at it. However, this new job offer has caused me some serious stress over the past 2 weeks. I love what I do, I love the co-workers I'm near, but I really didn't know what was holding me back from taking this job immediately.


Then it hit me last night as I was in tears over it.
I was scared.
Scared to come out of the comfort of my everyday, and try something new. I prayed all day for an answer! Wouldn't it just be so easy for God to come down here and TELL ME what to do!? I bet He's havin' a good laugh at me now.

I kept seeing small signs and hearing things said to me; "step out of your comfort zone" "God's plan is bigger than yours!" "trust in Him!"... so I decided to take the plunge and accept the offer today...and yeah, I'm kind of terrified I wont be good at this, or that I won't like my day to day experience at the office...but I've decided to take that leap of faith and say yes to this new adventure.

God's got this, why should I worry?

  3. One of my favorite pieces of wisdom that I think about constantly is that people regret more what they didn't do, than what they did! So excited you said yes to this opportunity, and I can't wait to hear all about it!

  4. Congrats girlie!!! :) I'm glad you are taking hold of this new adventure. What an exciting year this has been for you :) Moving out of your comfort zone has always been hard for me but I feel like I always learn so much from it.

  5. I feel like majority of the time fear is what holds me back from most things I'm always hanging out the fence about. For years I wanted to open an etsy shop and sell my crocheted goods and my headbands but I was always scared so I finally decided I just need to do it! I'm so afraid of failure, but how do I know if I'm going to fail if I don't even try to begin with?! Trying to get it set up with a four month old is another story, but I'm going to do it because, why not?!
