Surprise by Ashley Ambirge
I will not hide my tastes or aversions. I will so trust that what is deep is holy, if we follow the truth, it will bring us out safe at last. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Think of a time when you didn’t think you were capable of doing something, but then surprised yourself. How will you surprise yourself this week?
Oh boy. When do I ever actually think I am capable of doing something? I do things. I think that surprises me.
You know. I’m going to go with my current work situation. I knew what I wanted but wasn’t entirely confident I could figure out how to get it just right. I knew I’d figure something out, because not figuring something out is never an option… but I definitely lacked confidence in getting exactly what was right for me, for this time/place in my life.
I’m feeling really great about how things have actually worked out. I think the clarity of vision made everything fall into place beautifully. Despite my lack of confidence about it throughout the process of getting there. I’m so grateful that making a big scary decision a few months back, riddled with the recurring wave of lack-of-confidence, became one of the best life decisions to date.
How will I surprise myself this week? Oh jeez. I’ll get caught up on my Trust 30 challenge! How ‘bout that!
