This is my happy place. Sitting in my apartment with a huge cup of tea and my two sleepy cats, listening to the new podcast episode of Timesuck by Dan Cummins. It’s quiet and cozy, and right now I can pretend like there’s nothing outside in the world to bother me.
I’m about to go through several big transitions in my life all at once. In a few weeks I’ll be starting a coordinator position in an unfamiliar field. In July I’m getting married. We’re also moving, my fiance wants to buy a house more than anything.
All I can think is ‘I’m not ready.’ I can’t do this. Maybe somewhere along the lines I made a mistake and now I’ve bitten off more than I can chew.
What if I fail.
I signed up for all these challenges, but now I just want to crawl under the covers and go back to my easy, predictable life.
Life is about change. Transitioning. Moving forward. Making connections, investing in others, and experiencing growth.
I know that, of course. If we always stay in one place we’re not exercising our true potential and challenging ourselves.
But right now, I’m not sure I have enough faith for myself. So I’ll just have to take it one day, and one moment, and one prayer at a time.
