Holy crap. Just writing leap of faith as this posts’ title is almost giving me an anxiety attack. As some of you may be aware, I decided a while ago that a big move needed to happen in my life. A big move, cross country, to San Francisco. My timeline was to originally move either by the end of the year (when my lease was up) or when I got a job.
I have been very open and honest about this with my roommate. If I got a job earlier than our lease being over I told her I would have continued to pay my rent until it was up, and since my mom + sister live in the city, I have a place to stay while I am in transition.
Well, last night, my roommate told me that if I move by the end of September or so that one of her friend’s would be willing to do a sublease with me for the remainder of my lease. Meaning I would have no financial ties to my apartment, meaning I could move earlier without a job lined up. But holy crap. Could I do this? Could I pull it off?
While I have been applying to jobs and do have a few strong leads, the process of finding a job when you are not living in the city is hard! A number of times I have had great phone interviews but when they find out I’m not on their coast, I can hear the discouragement in their voices.
My heart is telling me to just do it. Take a leap of faith. I can stay with my mother while I find a job (so no rent,) I am sure I can at least find a waitress job very fast while I am looking for a full-time job, and I know that this is what I want. But its fast! Nothing is for sure. And this would be the biggest leap of faith I’ve ever taken.
Am I crazy to think this is a good idea? Am I crazy to just go? Because I am thinking this is a crazy, good idea that if I don’t do I will regret. I know if I work hard, pursue all the leads I have and budget well, I can make this work. I am going to speak with my roommate tonight to make 100% sure that her friend is 100% committed, and then make a final decision soon. Soon as in like tomorrow! AHH.
What would you do?
I decided that with all this news and the fact that I did not sleep much at all because of this news and my brain working triple time, to take a personal day. I had a long weekend anyways, so I think it is definitely justifiable. 🙂 Don’t tell on me!
Since I was actually home this morning and had time to make something tasty for breakfast I decided to make an egg sandwich. Yum!
It was fast, easy, and most importantly delicious. I made a the egg patty out of 1 egg + 2 egg whites plus spinach with a small piece of pepper jack cheese and a piece of turkey bacon on top. Placed in the middle of a sandwich thin, it was an awesome breakfast. A plum on the side, that I didn’t actually eat. I was full!
Today I am going to get organized, see if I can figure out this big move and get my butt to the gym!
Have you ever taken a leap of faith?
