I have the above quote saved on my phone. Although most of the time I consider myself a realist, when opportunity presents itself, I try not to flee but instead take advantage of it. I took advantage of two situations, that were causing me great pain, loss of a job and a relationship (or two), and were on the verge of breaking me. Instead of breaking me, after a somewhat, maybe longer than I wanted pity party, I took them both head on and turned them into positives. A new job opportunity that challenges me but I enjoy immensely. Relationship pain that gave me an outlet to writing about it, which has helped me in healing and opened me up to a wonderful community of bloggers and finding something I have become passionate about.
Embrace the opportunity, no matter how scary, even if it is out of your comfort zone. You never know what may happen and you may be pleasantly surprised at your strength and the result of taking that leap.
Happy Monday. Wishing everyone a great week.
