This entire year has been all about change for me and while some most has been out of my control, there are some things that actually are in my control.
Change is so scary. We get so used to our comfort zones but realistically, we cannot grow if we aren’t open to change and transformation.
It’s the fear of the unknown. The fear of what if it doesn’t turn out the way I hope. What if it does?
It’s also been an interesting journey in not so much the fear of failure, but fear of success. That’s another whole topic altogether. Luckily I’m facing them all and stronger for it.
I’ve been taking a few leaps of faith lately, well, to be fair, they’re more like baby steps and feelers but they’re proactive and I’m of the opinion that if I don’t try, I’ll never know and I don’t want to land up with regrets or wondering “What if?”
My soul has been whispering for a while now and I’m listening. I’m following my gut. It’s scary, but I’m facing it dead on.
Hold thumbs for me and wish me luck.
