When in transition, sometimes you can feel like you’re covered in raw edges, and everywhere you touch, you’re going to hurt. That is until you run into your new thing. But what you don’t realize is that being in transition is not when you’re most vulnerable, it’s when you’ve made that leap. It’s especially true if you’re leaping into something new, unexplored, not “safe.” When you’re in transition, you’re still hanging on, clinging to a comfortable unchanging, boring place. You’ve yet to become vulnerable. But when you make a decision, that’s when vulnerability starts.

But just think, once you’ve made a decision, at least you have one sure thing going for you: you’ve decided. Time to smooth the raw edges of your life. Leap.
