When you leap...

The net appears. I have heard that saying a lot, but
I had never experienced it. Now I have. I felt the net
forming the minute I quit my job, which felt very
much like jumping off a cliff :-). I have another wee
job tomorrow and for the last two days I have worked
on glazing the nine clay pieces I have done. Glazing
is every bit as hard as I have been told and I am afraid
none of my pieces will be saleable, but I won't know until
they are fired. It's okay, I will learn :-). During the last few
days I have felt so calm and so loved and so very taken
care of. I KNOW all is well and I will never take or stay
in another job because of fear. This Be Brave project has
been the most powerful thing I have ever done. I am into my
second month and I am committed to it for life. I must say
it can be intense, look how much my life has changed since
I started doing it. I recommend it to anyone who is feeling
stuck or wants to change their life in a hurry :-).
Thanks for all of your moral support. I love you.

Dearest Annie
I am absolutely HAPPY for you. I know the feeling, the fear and the insecurity, but once we are over that..there's no stopping us!! The feeling of freedom is so exhilirating that we only move on positively from now onwards. Hold on to your dreams and I am happy too that you have good support around you. I'd drop by for coffee and a hug..if only I am that near, but nevermind, I send my love and hugs virtually to you :D I am happy to know you and happy for your too! happy weekend, much love and hugs!!

I should totally do it, Annie. Are there any rules or guidelines? How do I know I'm being brave and not stupid?

And that's funny you feel so loved this week because it's been an I love Annie week for me.

I'm happy for you!

How lovely that the be brave project has turned your life around. You are an inspiration. Can't wait to see the glazed pots.

I'm so happy for you. My Being Brave was when I quit my job to stay at home full time with Livvie. I didn't think I could handle not getting a paycheck, but I love it.

Hi Annie, it is wonderful to hear how everything is turning out for the better in your life.

If glazing is anything like sewing, sometimes the mistakes can be the attractive part of the end process.

Wishing you courage and contentment.
