It’s not easy moving from a familiar comfortable place, setting,relationship or circumstance to something NEW. Never mind you may be unhappy, unfulfilled or unrecognized in that current situation, but hey you are use to it, its familiar this is what you know. Your mind swirls around with ‘what if ?’ situations….what if things get worse?, what if you can’t hack it ?,or #bitingnails what if you are not good enough?….eeeks!. and believe me we can come up with many more head spinning scenarios.
Well over a year ago after months of praying and talking I kicked those what ifs to the curb and resigned my job in financial management (a job i started at the bottom to get to where I was) in early 2015 to do something ……NEW …..squeal!!. I was finally taking action.
I started off blissfully excited, full of hope at all the possibilities that lay ahead……after the first few months, I had many nights of self doubt, nights spent crying and wondering if i had made a mistake, ‘how could I have though ?’ I questioned myself, I felt the passion in my core, why wasn’t I doing great. I still wasn’t ready to give up and with my gladiators cheering me on with prayer and perseverance I pressed on. As I write this post close to the end of 2016 and one full year at my new career, I am happy to report my bad spell was followed by some amazing results which had me smiling Sooo wide my face hurt…my journey isn’t over alas, it has just begun and i know it won’t be all smooth, but i am learning to trust God and focus on my destination not the times spent passing through the valley.
