I would like some input from you guys. I was approached today about a potential job offer that would involve a significant pay increase as well as the opportunity to meet a lot of new people. I have the credentials to do the work but it involves public speaking. I have a hard time with public speaking. I am shy, I blush... I am very visibly nervous and I'm scared I would make a fool of myself and be stuck looking for a new job all over again. I really like the job I have now and wasn't looking for a new job, just moonlighting work on the side. My co-workers and my boss are supportive of me and I like them so leaving would definitely be a big step outside my comfort zone. I've been there for almost 6 years. The new job would also involve a lot of travel so I would have to board my dogs often and I might end up putting a lot of miles on my car. The ironic thing is, my stbx has tried to get me to do this job for years because I've had this opportunity before and he was convinced I was perfect for it but I was always too afraid. I have anxiety with public speaking and he was so frustrated with me and my anxiety. I'm pretty comfortable meeting new people and learning new things but I'm AFRAID of getting in front of groups of people to talk. Ahhhhh....

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
