My Biggest, Boldest Move

The biggest, boldest move I did thus far is when I decided to work abroad. 
It is the boldest move I've made because I did not know what awaits me.

I didn't have any problem with my job before that. I was paid well, I had great friends. Yet, I still chose to step out of my comfort zone and leave everything familiar in exchange for uncertainty risking everything I've got.

I lost my savings because it took me a couple of months to find a job. When I finally found one, the job was easy but the people around me made it tough.

I thought too that I was starting a good new relationship, but working away put an end to all that.

When your morals contradict with what you are "forced" to do, something inside you just does not function well.

I was constantly sick. There were times I literally couldn't breathe.

Everything I've held on escaped from my grip. I started questioning God's purpose for me and even doubted myself.

Fast forward to the present, that one bold and big move I did chiseled and polished a lot of rough edges in me. I held on to God like it's my only chance of surviving. Because let's face was.

I realized that earning more than double becomes useless when you are not happy and at peace with what you do.

Looking back, that big change that happened brought me big realizations, introduced me to beautiful people and spared me from the relationship that I would have settled with.

It showed me that sometimes being strong is the only choice you've got left.

Like an eaglet, I was pushed at the edge of a high cliff by my Parent Eagle so I can learn the most important skill I need to learn.

I learned that I can fly if only I would let go of the things that weigh me down.

  1. It is amazing how God will push us to the edge so that we go further & do more & have greater purpose in Him. Glad to have stopped here from True Story. Blessings!

  2. My last job, was frustrating at times, but I said, "I will never quit." After 10 years on the job, and reaching age 72, our departments were offered a golden handshake that amounted to roughly $200 extra a month added to my pension. Although I promised to never quit, I did not promise not to retire, so I thanked God for his provision and retired. Thank you for sharing your inspiring post with us here at “Tell Me a Story."
