Shutting the Just in Case door

Shut the just in case door

The letter arrived in the post last month and I have been holding onto it, based on fear.

The old,  “What if blogging doesn’t work out?” I’ll need to keep this just in case.

I woke up to myself the other day.

Watch the video to see what I did with the JUST in CASE door.

    I can’t tell you how much I loved this Caz. Part of me wanted to tell you to stop and the other part was like ‘Yes’ – Do it!

    Fist bumps all the way.
    (You didn’t burn yourself did you?)

      No, but it was licking the tops of my fingers. I think Craig’s yell freaked me out more than was necessary. I’m so glad that part of my life is over. Now I just have to get rid of all my school books. Even more liberating.

    Ha! Good for you! I did the same thing (although not quite so dramatically) 25 years ago when I tossed my nursing registration form and declared once and for all that I wanted to do something in tune with my soul. I am now a children’s author. BTW, you can still teach—just not through the old fashioned ‘grey sox’ channels. In fact, you are still teaching! What a gem. xx.

      Great story Jen!! Thanks so much for sharing. Love that you are a children’s author!

    I’m getting rid of my wordly possessions right now. I have too much stuff and I hope to start my RTW trip within the next 1-1,5 years. I’m aspiring to be a full time travel blogger and an inspiration to others, like the many that have inspired me. I’m also experiencing the “just in case” every day as my plans are riddled with them. “Maybe I should take a course in this and this so I might work with that just in case
    blogging doesn’t pan out…” etc etc. I’m gonna learn to let all that go and finally make the jump. It’s already scary, but that’s because I know I’m serious about it.

    I loved this video, thank you for inspiring me, Caz 🙂

      Pleasure!! Take the jump, but always have a back up plan with the jump so you feel safer.
