I'm the type of person who likes to have all the answers. I like to know what's coming next. And I don't like making big decisions without having all the answers.
But do you know how well that works? Let me help you out... IT DOESN'T!!
If I waited to have all the answers or to know what was coming next, I would be forever in a holding pattern. I would never move forward. And I would be stuck in the same place.
How boring does that sound?!
Yes, making changes and moving forward without seeing or knowing what's ahead can be scary. Believe me, I know and understand this really well. It actually gives me anxiety when I am in situations like this.
And I've been here before. Not knowing what decision to make or what next step to take. It's so difficult. I tend to go back and forth about what's right or what's best. And I've found when I try to control the outcome, it tends to backfire. I have to trust in God that He has my best interests in mind. That all I can do is make the best decision for me with the information I have at that time.
So here's where I have to confess and maybe eat a little crow. If you recall my post from a few weeks back about marriage and leaving, I now know that making the decision to leave, just like making the decision to stay, is insanely difficult. There is no "easy" about anything when it comes to marriage.
Let me be very clear about one thing: I have zero idea what the future holds for me, but I HAVE to move forward. I can't be stuck in this same place over the next several months or even years. I would be absolutely miserable.
Oh - and to clear up one more thing: life is going to move forward, with or without me (or you). How do you think it would feel if you woke up one morning and realized life had just passed you by? That you had been stuck in the same place for months, years, decades?
I don't know about you, but I don't want to end up that way. Not even remotely.
So here's to having faith in myself, faith in God, and taking risks. I'm going to think big, even if it's scary. Because life is good. I am blessed. And I'm not staying in the same place. Nope...not happening!
Remember...you don't have to have it all figured out to move forward!
I hope you have a beautiful week! Stay strong, think big, have faith, take risks. It won't always be easy, but it will always be worth it!
With love and wellness,
