The unknown

I am afraid of the unknown.  What if I take a jump without a safety net?  What if I fall?  Who will pick me up?  I have lived most of my life by the seat of my pants.  I have always jumped right in, without giving it a second thought.  I never had very far to fall.

This time is different.  With each passing day I am considering moving to North Carolina more and more.  Something about it seems right.  I am afraid that I am misinterpreting something and it will be a big mistake.  What if I hate it there? What if I take a fall that I cannot recover from?  There just seem to be a lot of “what ifs”.

On the flip side, maybe this is what I am meant to do at this stage in my life.  Maybe this is where I am supposed to be?  If I don’t do this I will never know.  I could miss out on something that I am supposed to be a part of.

It is the gray area, the not knowing that bothers me.  It actually scares me.  It also excites me.  I will have to give it some more thought.
