I Jumped So That I Could Fly

A few months ago, I wrote the post Don’t Quit Your Day Job…” the dilemma of whether or not to jump off the runaway train headed towards Working To Make Someone Else Rich.  I decided to jump about a year ago, but I was afraid of life’s uncertainties.

So I rode awhile longer waiting for the perfect time, hoping the train slowed a bit, but knowing that it never would.  I contemplated for months and made the classic t-chart listing all the pros & cons.

I jumped.
I jumped so that I could fly.
There are so many things that I want to do – that I can do.

I am in control of my success and happiness.  Life is still uncertain, but that’s life.

Looking back I wish I would have jumped sooner, but better late than never.

Sometimes believing in yourself and having someone believe in you is all you need.

I’m Just Sayin’…(Damn!)

Almost through bustling over here onethird of it, I do not want to waste.

    Congatulations! You had the courage to make the change. I’m in a train as well, close to the door, but I still haven’t successfully overcome my fear to jump off. Nice post!
