Scared to take the leap?
I stood at the edge of the cliff, water below 🌊
Just like in my career, the question was...
Would I take the leap?
It was a warm summer day in Eastern Oregon 🔆
My friends and I were headed out in the afternoon.
Down to take a walk and a dip at a local swimming hole 🏊
As we made the walk in I was talking with my friends
The probably couldn't tell but i was scared shitless😨
Jumping and bouncing around
When we got to our destination my pulse started racing ❤️
As I looked over the edge my heart in my throat
I could see the water from the creek racing
downstream, creating rapids
Folks jumping in, laughing, playing, having a grand old time.
There was my friend, the adventure seeker, outdoor guide
He fit right in
He jumped right in
He splashed right into that cold water
A scream of abandon
I was jealous...wishing i had the courage to live that way
SO I DID!!
I said yes...until 5 minutes went by.
Everyone was cheering for me; they could see the struggle was real.😱
Then i remember the kind words of a stranger:
"If it helps, I'll jump with you."
And maybe thats how you feel right now.
Looking out into the future of something exhilarating in your career
💗Your mind full of ideas that excite
💗Your soul full thinking of the lives you'll impact 💗Your heart racing with the thought of jumping out into your dream
If only you believed.
Sometimes what you need to take the leap is for someone to come alongside you and say:
"If it helps I'll jump with you"
Another three minutes went by and we counted down
3...this isnt safe
2...this is a mistake
1...i'm going to die, i know it
15-20 feet later i was in the water celebrating with my new friend.
How bout you?
are you still stuck on the edge of the cliff ready...
to take the leap?
