I don't like change. In fact, I avoid it at every turn, but there comes a time when you have to either crap or get off the commode. Everyone faces this sort of situation at least once -- when one decision holds a million possibilities and/or consequences.
The only question is, do we have the courage to choose? Or, do we just stay on the path we've been on because it 'feels' safe and familiar, even if it's leading us nowhere. True, there's a boatload of difference between the known and the unknown. The known means comfort and familiarity. Problem is, oftentimes, the 'known' holds hidden as well as overt dangers we're too blind or naive to see.
This is a post about fear, something I'm very familiar with having recently made a very frightening career decision. One thing I learned was that I was never going to get on the right path until I took that first step off the wrong one, and when I speak about 'wrong,' I'm not talking about a situation or circumstances, I'm talking about a mindset.
What did I learn? That I had to leave my doubts and fears on the cutting room floor and take a chance. On me.
