Leap

Images via: 1, 2
When it comes to life and to living, we don't know what's going to happen. We don't know where we'll be, or who will be there with us. The future has yet to be written, and as the days unfold, so do our stories. I think that's kind of the magic of it all. That we live with endless adventures and possibilities. We can't control everything around us, nor, should we want to. Which is why, most of life is a leap of faith. Faith in ourselves and in others.  Faith in the sky, and in our wings. Those first steps in a new direction can be scary or difficult. Do we go cautiously? Or do we throw ourselves without warning, into the wind, and hope for the best?  Maybe our landings will be rocky and we find that we have to pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off. Maybe they will be smooth, and for a while, we find ourselves content. Or maybe, with the biggest leaps of all, our landings will take us to a place where dreams are reality, where our hearts fly, and where our story truly begins. One leap could start it all.

Great thoughts - and this year is all about taking those leaps of faith. The first steps are scary, but once you get going the fear turns into more excitement of the unknown.
Much love,

And yes it's very well written, as usual when you are being thoughtfull ! :)

"When you come to the edge of all the light you know and you're about to step into the darkness Faith is believing one of two things will happen: there will be something solid to stand on or you will learn to fly"

Loved your post! It reminded me of this quote. Loved you 1st one too. Thank you!

Thoughtful, Mindful, and Pithy. I enjoy also your creative picture match. I recently took a leap. I had no idea my life could be this wonderful. I vote for "...throw ourselves without warning..."; building the courage is the hard part, but the return is oh so great.
