Ever want to change your life but were too scared to do it? Yeah, me too. But if you are willing to say screw it and embrace your fear rather than let it control your destiny…ANYTHING is possible.
How do I know? Because I’ve ‘been there, done that’ as they say.
In 2011, I gave it all up – my home, my marriage, my job, my security – and embarked on a journey with no certain outcome. Was I scared? Hell-to-the-fucking-yeah. Was I worried about what people would think? Sure (gotta love being insecure, right?). Was I more-than-slightly nervous about what my future would hold? Most definitely.
But I did it anyway.
And while I won’t pretend to tell you every day since has been easy, fun or fantabulous, I will tell you that it all has been worth it. Even on those days when the struggle seems oh-too-real. (Of course, for those days there’s always rum.)
And all things considered? I don’t regret a moment of it. Well, maybe packing stilettos in my tiny “must take to the islands” suitcase, but other than that…nothing else.
So whether you’re thinking about quitting a job that is slowly killing your soul or walking away from a relationship that has exceeded its expiration date or moving to the place that makes your spirit sing, I say JUST DO IT.
Life is too short for anything less than living like the badass, fabulous woman you are.
