First of all, I felt overwhelmed by the amount of support I received in relation to my big news, so thanks for that!
I am feeling about a million emotions right now. This place is truly amazing. It is beautiful and I was pinching my self during my ride yesterday.
But if I am being honest I am also feeling fear.
I wish I wasn’t! Trust is something I value and trusting that everything is going to work out is part of that. Last time I moved to Colorado though I didn’t last long. I was injured and depressed. I was running out of money and in turn I ran home. As you can imagine, coaching high school cross country is not a big money maker. While I don’t value living large, money is money and we all need it.
That being said I am stressed to find another job. A job that makes me some money but also allows me to live out my passion for coaching. Did I mention I am also back to chasing the professional triathlete dream? Ha! So I need a job that pays the bills, allows me to have a job I love (coaching) AND lets me chase my other professional dream. What a combo, right?
So yeah, I feel scared. Scared that I am going to fail at finding that above job. Fearful that again I will have to run back to California. Afraid that taking this leap of faith is going to be for nothing.
On the flip side I know that I have control of the actions I can take. Fear can be good, fear can motivate! So instead of letting my fear hold me back (obviously that is not the biggest issue since I am typing this here in Colorado), I am taking advantage of fear. I am going to let fear move me. Fear is going to push me to work my butt off for this perfect third job. I am going to run with the dreams that I have because I can’t stop thinking about them. I am going to pray and I am going to trust that things will work out exactly as they should.

What is the biggest leap of faith you have taken and how did it work out?
Does fear usually motivate or paralyze you?
What are some of your biggest fears?
