In my last post, I said that starting Eden Design took a leap of faith. What I didn’t mention, is how absolutely terrifying that was.
If you were to ask my teenage son to describe me, I am quite certain that he would say that I’m overprotective and in most situations go directly to the worst-case-scenario. Unfortunately, I can’t disagree with that assessment. Even though one part of me wants to be adventurous and fearless, my brain would rather spew as many “what-ifs…” that it can before I have to force it to stop. It’s funny to me how we are able to continuously hold within us conflicting perspectives — one says “Stay here, it’s cozy and safe” and the other says “Leap!”
Having to navigate these two feuding parts of me is an ongoing battle that has resulted in great successes and good tries, but rarely a complete failure, or as I often fear – certain death. I’m only half-kidding on that last one. I want to expand beyond my comfort-zone but sometimes it is SO hard.
