Don’t be Afraid

What is holding you back?  So many times in my life, my intuition has spoken to me. Sometimes I listen. Most times, fear has held me back. It’s a quandary. But I don’t want to live my life living with “What if I had….?” No, that is not how I want to live.

The past year has presented so many opportunities to listen to that voice inside, to take a leap of faith and go for it. So far, my intuition has led me in the right direction. When I doubt it, I find myself regretting the decisions I’ve made.

Yet another opportunity for a leap of faith has presented itself. Knowing what I’ve experienced, living the life I have for the past year, this time I am choosing to follow my gut, take another leap and see what happens. I don’t think things present themselves in your life by accident. There is a reason and I, for one, choose to follow the road less traveled and see what happens.  The past year has been a ride, a wonderful wild ride and it tells me there is much more waiting for me. I can’t wait to see what happens!


About Andrea Cole

Four years ago, I followed my dreams and my heart by quitting my job, selling my home, and moving myself back to Seattle from Washington, DC. I didn't know how things would turn out, but I knew whatever life held in store for me, it was going to be in Seattle. And what a ride it has been! I now help others live their lives through rewarding career and meaningful retirement coaching. My website is Update: After 5 years of living in Seattle and experiencing the rapid growth and rapid degeneration of this city's charm, I made the decision to leave. I now reside in Orlando, Florida where I continue my work helping people find new jobs as well as active retirements.
