” God placed the best things in life on the other side of your fears”
I’ve always been very cautious in life, well kind of sort of lol, I have always been scared of failure. I’m telling you that FAILURE was my worst nightmare. I would literally run away if I sensed that I could.
Two years ago my company gave my coworkers and I over 20 cities to choose from and we only had 2 days to decide. After we chose a place we had ONE WEEK to move and to start our new position in a new city.
Do you know how terrified I was to have to move all of my things by myself across the country ALONE? I have never lived on my own ever. I was terrified.
I decided to move to California. I could’ve moved somewhere closer but I thought to myself “if I was going to move I might as well go big”.
As soon as I got on the plane I cried. I was finally leaving my comfort zone. No more being dependent on my family and friends. Now it was time for me to grow up.
Living here so far has been very challenging and rewarding at the same time. I’ve dealt with some really hard times to the point where I wanted to give up and just leave. I have gained so much confidence in myself. I am always overcoming fears. I am so amazed on how I am pushing forward and learning myself.
Most people come here and leave when things get tough but I am going to keep pushing forward. It’s easy to go back home instead of being in California with no support system but I feel like I’m here for a reason. Once I figure that out I will be ready for my next adventure!
Fear will not defeat me.
