  1. Very timely topic! I just faced a LOT of fears, when I gave up my job of 10 years (which I hated, and which was making me physically ill from the stress), signed my house back over to the bank, and relocated my family 1200 miles away. It sounds bold–and at times it was terrifying–but the actual risks were so low. It was really a lot riskier to remain where we were, in a situation that was slowly destroying me.
