It's been a while since I've done something new. About 3 years to be exact...
Not that I haven't done anything new in 3 years, cause the time has been filled with lots of "new." It's that it has been 3 years since I've done something big.... and new... and different... and scary.
Considering that 3 years ago consisted of me, most likely, doing the biggest most challenging "new" things in my lifetime... I thought this would be easier.
Moving to a little town in Germany by yourself to start a new job?
I sounded like a piece of cake!
So what's the problem with...
Half the distance (well more than half...).
Half the fear.
Half the language issues.
Double the knowledge.
Double the experience.
... It seemed like I could flow right into my new life without a glitch.
Needless to say, the feelings of being overwhelmed, lonely and afraid will always be there... No matter how large the change. The challenge is to think more on the feelings of excitement, drive and passion that are going on inside. Don't think about how far you still have to go (in my case it's only been 2 days of work), but think on how far you've come... because that will be what pushes you forward to get where you want to be.
