What if… what if… what if…

I normally don’t realize that I have made a life-changing decision until after it’s too late. Because I don’t have the luxury of wasting time anymore, as I enter into my mid-thirties, I am attempting to think before I leap. However, I don’t want to over-think and talk myself out of doing something I know in my heart I need to do.

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.  ~Ambrose Redmoon

When making an important decision, there is always an element of fear present.  This is totally natural… but it shouldn’t paralyze you.  In order to be courageous, you need to have FAITH to balance out the FEAR.  Moving forward knowing that you don’t know all the answers to all the “what ifs” that plague your soul is scary.  But what’s scarier is, never knowing how wonderful things would have been if you would have just been courageous enough to step out on faith!  That is the worst “what if” of them all!

I am making a big decision today… a scary one.  I’ve thought about it for years.  I let the “what ifs” bounce around in my head for far too long.  Recently though, something clicked inside me… and I said to myself, I can’t do this anymore… and I can’t.  I silenced all the noise inside of me… there are no more “what ifs” to be answered.  I am following my heart… taking faith by the hand… and taking that first step… even though I can’t see the entire staircase.
