I’m Terrified — And It’s Okay

So I quit my job at Google. Brave decision!? A lot of people congratulated me. Told me I have guts to follow my heart. Said that they were inspired by my gumption.

Truth be told: It’s scary. I am terrified. I am riddled with doubt. I don’t have a regular paycheck. I have to pay for my own health insurance. I don’t know what the future will hold for me. I don’t even know exactly what I want to do — it all feels a bit like a blur at the moment.

And yet: It’s all okay. Life is technicolor for me now — all the ups and downs, all the emotions, all the self-doubt and the moments of invincibility — everything is amplified and pure. It’s kinda cool. And terrifying. And awesome.

Are you terrified? Scared? Confused? It’s all going to be okay. As long as we’re doing the things we’re doing for the right reasons, it’s all going to work out.

Run! :)
