Sometimes you gotta leap!

Starting out on this new venture has been somewhere between exciting and nerve-wracking.  You ever envision something, work on it, tell a few people, then get all nervous when its time to really get started?  Well, that is/was me.  Call is divine guidance that the idea for this site came to me one day in August 2015 and I began to write the ideas down.  I worked on it, got all excited, then life happened and I let it fall by the side.  My husband and a few other friends would occasionally ask me about it, but when I gave them more excuses than timelines, they too eventually stopped asking.  There were even some people who told me this wasn’t where they ‘saw’ me- blogging.  That hurt too.  But then a few weeks ago I got my nerve up to take that leap.  I jumped into making some decisions about my 9-to-5, and as if that wasn’t scary enough, I took another leap to start ATWM.com.

The night after I made the first post live I could hardly calm myself down to go to sleep…and my alarm goes off at 5:30am (sometimes 4:30am).  My mind raced with all kinds of questions and thoughts.  Would people like it?  I can’t believe I finally did it.  What would my friends think?  Oh my God did I really just click “Publish?”  Is this a good idea?  Is this going to work?  And the questions and thoughts rolled on and on and on until I finally told myself to STOP.  I had to calm myself down and realize that there is a reason this idea was given to me and I needed to silence the negative thoughts and just do it.  So, with a grateful heart, here it is!  –krystal
