From Fearful to Grateful

Blessed.

So very blessed.
Today my first Paparazzi paycheck deposited since retiring Solomon and I am crying. Sobbing.
Overcome with emotion.
.
I was terrified, scared out of my mind to think about letting go of the “steady” income until I had a very enlightening conversation with my mom about how life is different now- when our grandparents started jobs they ended at the same one 40 years later bc it was safe, secure, guaranteed, and their employer took care of them.
.
Life has changed.
.
No matter the employer, if you passed today they will replace you before you were in the ground.
.
Nothing is safe and secure, least of all the job you’re in.
.
Taking the leap in retiring Solomon was full of fear but I faced it and did it anyway, and the rewards have been outstanding!
.
Our lives have changed, our relationship has changed, we’ve changed individually, and our finances have changed! Today’s Paparazzi payment was more than 3x what he would make on a month!!
.
We stepped on faith, I clung to the promise that if God feeds the birds every day how much more will he do for me, his child? And we worked in faith knowing that all things work together for the good of those who love God.
.
And we’re just getting started!
.
I understand your fear. Trust me when I say feel it but do it anyway! Whatever your dream is, do it afraid!
.
The rewards are worth it!
