I’m on day 28 already of the single woman’s 30 day blogging challenge: Describe a moment when you made a big, bold move. In any area of life: Career, Love, etc.
When we talk about bold, it means courageous, confident, and fearless; ready to take risks.
At present, a big, bold move that I have done in my career is when I have worked at the same time started studying for my Masters of Science in Nursing using my own earned money, without asking for my tuition from my parents. For me, it is already a sign that I am becoming independent as a young adult professional. Since I am so dependent with my parents especially my mom, with that action, I am taking few small steps of independence. Thus, I am proud of myself by being able to pay my bills and by even living on my own too without any house helper.
As an introvert, a bold move that I have done in regards to love is when I’ve confessed my feelings or love to someone. I think that is one courageous move. Although, you have to face the consequences of the action, because what happened to me might happen to you as well. First, he may get shocked and totally cut off ties with you or even block you in social media. Second, he may tell you that he treats you like his sister. Third, he may ignore you because he’s scared to reject your feelings.
In the end, I’m just thankful that I did it courageously even if it is just online. Hehe.
Don’t worry. At least you have shared what you feel. Did you know? I’ve heard from someone that girls who don’t get to confess have a harder time moving on than those who did? Pero depende pa rin siguro sa personality.. Kasi there are those people like me, who have a hard time forgetting my mistakes done. That is why thankfulness and being grateful regardless of the circumstances around is a must. Worshipping God also helps. It turns my mind to focus on the goodness of God despite of and in spite of such things and not to my own self.
Although, I know it’s still painful because you did not get what you wanted. But, trust in the Lord that He always has His best interest for you. We don’t really know what the future holds, but we can rest reassuringly that God loves us as His beloved. You are loved more than you know. You are worthy and fearfully and wonderfully made.
Anyway, I feel like I am capable of making more fearless moves. One at a time, I am facing my fears. I’m grateful to God for making me feel the fears and even overcoming them at the same time. (*kaba is real. Haha!) Actually the mere fact that I am sharing my feelings to you here, while writing down my thoughts is already a bold move for me. So kudos self. 😉 You are getting better and better everyday.
Lord, thank you that you promise to deliver me from all my fears. Thank you that your angel sets up a circle of protection around me as I pray. Lord, I thank, praise and worship you today.
