Pieces of Me

A Leap of Faith

It was a dull, lifeless Friday in the middle of May. I had been idling on Facebook all day working all day.  Someone, at some point had “liked” a link on Facebook.  It was the Problogger Training Event 2012 event.  I clicked.  It looked interesting.

I came back to the page.  The event was on days that the boys were already looked after.  It was in Melbourne.

I came back to the page.  Early bird tickets had just been released.  They were only limited.

I came back to the page. In the one hour I was at lunch, twenty tickets had been sold.  I emailed my sister, what do you think? Her reply was instant, just go!

I came back to the page. I idled and fluffed.  More tickets were sold each time I checked.

My day ended and I picked up my boys.  Hubby was out for work, so it was just me and them.  For the first time, I took my laptop to bed.  And I kept checking the tickets.  More sold.

I tried to call hubby.  Phone off.  No reply.

In the silence of my house, with my two boys asleep on my bed, the light from the laptop only barely filled the room.  I took a deep breath and let go.  I clicked to buy one of the last few early bird tickets.  And in that instant, I took a leap of faith. My leap of faith.  I trusted my gut.  Shut out my head.  And jumped.  I’m going to the Problogger Training Event 2012. I-am-going!

a leap of faith

I have never impulsively, spontaneously, spur of the moment, jumped at anything ever before. This one is for me baby!  Every minute.  Every ounce.

Exhilaration? Yes.

Anxiety? Yes.

Intimidation? Yes.

Adrenalin? Yes.

I wanted to jump up and down on the bed!

Instantly, I thought, I need to book in my lashes!

    awesome work. Just do it. It will be pretty intense but my advice would be to introduce yourself to lots of people and get talking too. You can make some lovely friendships in real life too. Fun and exciting times ahead for you!

    • oh my goodness, thank you so much…i think I need to sit back and pinch myself…Gemma has read my blog (yes, its no secret that I just love MBN)…excuse me while I go and pass out….a sure sign of how hopeless I am going to be at ProBlogger!

    You’ll have a great time and you will learn such a lot. Blog your notes for rest of us and if you’re getting your lashes done you might as well throw in a manicure too!

    • hi Bree, I’ve booked the manicure and with a bit of luck a few blog posts will come from the conference too!

    The image of you jumping up and down on the bed (with the boys still sleeping on it) made me smile :)))
