It's been crazy. I am a nest seeker by nature and change in my routine is not always welcomed. These past 2 weeks, I was trying to get all the tasks at work done and passed on to the rest of my team. Everyday realizing quitting was the best decision I made. Until I freaked out. I know new job jitters is normal, but I was really panicking. Self-doubt, buyers remorse. I went through a roller coaster of feelings.
Until it was not anymore...and all it took was a few words from my husband: "Ana, everyone has faith in you, but yourself." It really took me by surprise. I wonder how many of us go through this insane sea of emotions when it comes to how confident we feel in our competencies. How many of us doubt we are capable of a lot, even though we have succeeded in many trials or continued on, even after failing.
I am now excited about this new path in my career and about being once again out of my comfort zone.
To me courage is to keep going on, even when afraid.
