Leaping

Last week marked the one month point of me starting my new job here in Georgia. While things haven't turned out the way I had hoped they would, I'm finally starting to find my way though the disappointment by learning to celebrate the fact that I had the courage to leap. Leaping into the unknown by moving to a place where I know absolutely no one was a big test of my faith. I knew it would be, but I failed to realize just how big that test would be. But I did it anyway. So many people always have a what if....and I didn't want Georgia to be my what if.

I had people in my life tell me that Georgia was too far away and that I wouldn't like it. I shook off their doubts and kept packing boxes. Even after all the disappointments and frustrations, I don't regret taking the leap. I absolutely needed to shake up my life and in the past month, well, my life certainly has been shaken. I needed to move here to prove to myself that I had the courage to do something big. I needed to step out of my comfort zone in a huge way. There's so much magic and beauty in the simple fact that I took a breath and stepped of the ledge not knowing what was going to happen.


I'm choosing to celebrate, That I had the courage to leap. That I had the courage to swallow my fear and head into the unknown, even if that unknown has been completely different than I imagined it to be. That I'm strong enough to not be defeated by this, instead I'm making new plans, charting a new course, working on finding a new ledge to leap off of into the beautiful vastness of life's possibilities.
