While things didn't go so well for her, there are many people out there who would tell you that their lives just wouldn't be as good now if they hadn't taken a big leap at some point in their past. You don't have to learn to actually fly and cast magic to shake things up. If you have a big career change, you're moving countries or there's a big shift coming up in your personal life, you might find yourself freaking out and wondering how to cope. Changes are scary.
I moved to Japan in 2010, having never visited the place before. Lots of people told me "I wish I could do something like that!" Less than two years later, I was moving to Prague (with the fiancé that I found in Japan, oh yes) with even less certainty - no job, no idea where I'd live, just a pocket full of dreams (well, and a little cash; it does help).
In my first ever VIDEO ENTRY I talk about making big leaps in your life. My video entries are delightfully named Tea with Gwynnie, because I'm so very British that I just can't resist sipping on a cup of tea while talking to you. Posting a video is a bit of a leap for me, too, as I cringe when I watch myself on camera... but I figured hey, I might as well see how it goes.
So, here it is... enjoy!
