Being brave

I am afraid of the journey I'm embarking upon.  My job was making me physically ill and I was being taken advantage of so i decided to jump into the unknown.  I know the universe will take excelllent care of me because I 've already seen angels appear in the form of my new boss surprising me by giving me money on the day I announced I had quit my job and was ready to work for him, in the form of calling a big client to ask her to follow me to my new company and having her listen to me cry for a few moments, to the client who I had called for a loan and who turned around with a great business proposal.  To the facebook friends who wished me luck.  Most importantly, to my Mom for supporting me in her way. 

It's Sunday at 9 pm and I have to work at 9 am tomorrow.  I have to put on a brave face and get a lot of work done.  I need to be methodical and calm, not emotional and frazzled.  My new boss has seen me cry and needs to know I can handle anything.

I also realize that I can't date right now.  A cute man asked If I want to meet and i don't want to.
