Leap of faith…

51ccSaturday night I jumped.  I did it!  It was amazing, exhilarating and scary all at the same time.  I was standing there looking down with my heart racing and all I kept thinking was “this is crazy, I can’t do it!”  But I did!  I haven’t felt knots in my belly like that in such a long time and it was worth it! It made me feel alive.

Funny though, I got to thinking…why was it so hard to step off that 75 foot cliff?  I had my safety harness, something to hold on to and a big bouncy pillow to catch my fall.  I realized it was my aged wisdom that wanted to hold me back.

When we are young we take risks all the time.  As we get older we are less apt to take those risks and become more and more cautious with age.  In life however, we have no safety harness, no big bouncy pillows to catch our fall and sometimes we don’t even have anything to hold on to.  Yet maybe, just maybe, we should jump in life more often.  Maybe the risk is worth the exhilarating plunge.

When we are single that caution is sometimes exactly what keeps us single.  Maybe we need to walk straight off that single cliff and enjoy the free fall again.  So what if he is not there to catch our fall…worst case scenario we end up with a broken ankle…or heart.

At what point do we realize it’s more about the journey and not the destination.  We are old enough to know how to get from point A to point B but are we too old to enjoy the ride?

I want to be a little girl again; sometimes ignorance is bliss…and exhilarating!!
