Living in a state of uncertainty is something I don’t do very well. In fact, I think most people find discomfort in the unknown. Leaning in to uncertainty means you have to surrender yourself and let go of micromanaging every aspect of your world. Leaning in to uncertainty means you have to be vulnerable.
I’m on the brink of a lot of change, but am still standing on the edge looking at the plunge I’m about to take. Now that my daughter Amelia is 9 months old and I’ve gotten the hang of this whole motherhood thing, I can now focus on something else other than surviving as a new mom.
My career and life path are changing. I’ve been working towards a change for years now. I’m ready to finally step off the ledge and take the plunge. I am terrified. I’ve been staying in my comfort zone while dipping one foot into other waters for years now. It’s easy to stay in the known. It’s predictable. There’s comfort in predictability. However, there’s restlessness and discontentment for the curious and adventurous soul in staying comfortable. Taking the plunge means you are opening yourself up to failure. Failure has a negative connotation to it, but really failure is a beneficial and beautiful thing. You learn when you fail. You grow when you fail. You stay stagnant when you choose the known and comfortable. Where’s the opportunity to grow in that?
I am ready to surrender. I am ready to pursue my passions wholeheartedly. I am ready to let go of fear and forge a new path on blind faith. Faith that I can do it. Faith that it will work out even if I fail. Faith that failure won’t break me, but instead build me.
I am ready.
