Today was not a particularly stellar day. Full of self doubt. Second guessing. I hate second guessing. I work very hard not to rethink a decision that has been made and effected. Because, well it has been made. You can't go back. But, I can go forward. I certainly am not standing still.
I had it pretty good. I had a safe job. Lots of holidays. Lots of sick time built up. Was it secure? Well not really. But, it felt more secure than my new job feels right now. I had an office with a door I could shut. I knew what I was doing. I had built up a good referral network and I was trusted. But, I walked away from all of that. I walked because I needed to do something different. I needed to be engaged. I need to remember that.
I was struggling. I need to remember that too.
And there are no guarantees in life. I have this life to lead. I am grateful I pushed on the doors and they opened. I am glad I took the leap. I will remember to breath.
My word for this year is strength. Kind of blows me away when I think of all the things I have experienced in 2012.

If you long for it, lean towards it.
I am surrounded by good folks who are full of encouraging words. Take risk. Do not play it safe.
Dare to try. Step up. Show up. Ship.
So. I am. Going to make it work.
