Jump In.

I had a dream recently in which I am going skydiving with a friend. I am really scared that the parachute won’t work. I say to my friend, “This is a risk where I believe I might either feel amazingly wonderful and free and strong afterward … or I could die.”  As I am talking to him, something in me says I should just do it. That chances are on my side that the parachute will work and it will be amazing to float in the sky.

I keep thinking of this dream. About all the ways in which I keep myself safe by not “jumping in.”  The more I think about it, the more I realize that the biggest fear I have is that I’ll die without having jumped fully into life. That my time will be up and I’ll wish I had jumped MORE.

Today, ask yourself this:

What one thing would I most like to do, but feel afraid to do?

Then, do this:

Maybe we can inspire one another to leap.

I’d love to hear your thoughts …
