Fear is a burning bridge

Over the past several weeks I’ve made a lot of decisions that will have a lasting impact on my life. I’ve set the wheels in motion for things that will ruin my finances, end my career, destroy a friendship, and send me into a spiral of doubt and uncertainty.

I am so excited about my future and about the opportunities I have in front of me. But at the same time, I am more frightened than I ever thought possible. Some days, I can pretend that everything is going to be OK. But some days, I can’t.

Fear is a burning bridge behind you and a dark, foggy, trail-less forest ahead of you.

Sadly, my flashlight runs on hope and faith and I seem to be running low on supplies…

(But tomorrow will be better. Right? …)

  1. You know that I TOTALLY get how you feel! TOTALLY!!!!! And all I want to do is give you a biiiig hug and tell you that everything will be ok! 🙂 (But if you’re like me, sometimes when people tell me that…that doesn’t even help!?)

    We all make plans and try to control how things will happen – what we need to accept at the outset is that it may not happy the way we plan 🙂 However!…either way, things will work out….hmmmm, I’m trying to recall my Facebook status from a few days ago..uuuuhm…..ah:

    “Faith is established conviction concerning things unseen and settled expectation of future reward”

    Take each word individually and makes notes on what they mean 🙂

    For the first time in my life I’m also making a decision that will have a huge impact on my finances – and it’s not even as if the South African Rand is a strong currency 😦 I’m living on the bare minimum (bread and water kind of stuff) – but, I keep on reminding myself that I’m doing this for my future happiness.

    Go forth and be blessed!
