Good Things Come

I love the chorus in this song that goes:

"Don't get down cause good things come when you stop waiting around,
Good things come when you stop looking.
So don't get down, you just gotta stop looking."

Today, I reflected on the steps that brought me to where I am today in my work.  I stopped waiting around and made this leap into a different workplace, with different people, different teaching.  It was scary, but looking back, it was so worth it.  Right before I made the initial leap, I kept questioning myself.  Was I making the right choice?  Looking back, the answer is so obvious. 

I was telling someone today how blessed I am to be working where I am now.  I almost gave up teaching earlier this year.  But this person I spoke to today told me: "good things come to good people."  This is truth:  Good things come to good people.  You just have to stop waiting around.  You have to leap.  Have faith.

I too took a leap only now I'm waiting to see if it pays off. Your post makes me feel I'm already better for having done, so thanks.
Warm regards,
