My life has been full of mini, and sometimes giant, leaps of faith.
Like the time I quit my steady-eddy university job to try out an exciting new adventure in no-guarantees corporate America. Or when I left my corporate job 4 years later to follow my dream of being a full time artist. And then 4 years after that when I stepped back into corporate America because I had a hunch it was the right thing to do (unexpectedly, I divorced 2 years later, so it was VERY right).
Each of these leaps was absolutely for my highest good.
However, when I was in the process of deciding which path to take and simultaneously contemplating many options, I bounced between sleepless, fear-filled nights and feeling totally compelled to jump off a cliff yelling “yahoooo!!!”.
In the end, in spite of many conflicting voices in my head, I usually took a brave and blind leap into an unknown future.
Thankfully the universe has consistently responded to my heartfelt jumps by providing a safe place to land that is even greater than my original dream. And with each successive leap, I have learned to trust that my path is being divinely guided, and that no matter where I land, it will always be much better than where I started.
Will I leap again? More than likely, but not now.
Today I am planting the seeds that will be harvested sometime in the future, but in this moment, I have no idea when and/or how.
In the meantime, I am patient, fully present and enjoying the over-the-top amazing life before me.
What I’ve learned with life experience is that indulging in fear-filled thoughts about what could happen, and probably never will, is a waste of my time and energy. Now when I hear the scared part of me screaming for attention, I calm it by asking the Universe to make it crystal clear when it is time to take another leap, and what direction would support my highest good and that of all concerned.
I would love to hear about YOUR last leap of faith, or about the one you are contemplating, or are about to take in the comments below.
It takes a lot of courage to step into the vast unknown, and your story of bravery, whether tiny, monumental or somewhere in between, will support everyone who is meant to read this post.
