Take a Leap

on January 22, 2013

– From The Daily Compass:

Perhaps you have seen, or even been, the child who approaches the high dive, looks down, pauses, climbs back down the ladder, climbs back up the ladder, goes back down the ladder, climbs up the ladder again, pauses, looks, and finally takes the big jump. Somehow, in the climbing and the looking down and the watching others jump and survive and race to jump again, the fear doesn’t necessarily go away, but the longing for the sense of flying grows until it outweighs the fear, and the scales tip.

What leap into the unknown have you taken in spite of the fear?

I have a best friend. She is wonderful. We have been friends since the 7th grade. I have moved all over the US and we have still kept in touch and remained friends. She lives in Austin, Texas. then, life happened and we finally lost touch for a few years. I really missed her. My husband said one Friday “Let’s go see her.” Now, I am a meticulous planner. I must have at least a week’s notice (but usually more) for everything. I do not like to be spontaneous about anything. I have to check to see if we have the money, budget, plan a route, etc. Otherwise, I am afraid that things will go wrong. I wanted to go but I had not planned or budgeted or anything. I REALLY missed her. So, we loaded up the car and went. We threw caution to the wind. We drove from Fort Worth to Austin (four hours) and met with her. We had the best weekend ever! On my way home, I thanked Erin for convincing me to go. It was the best decision ever. Since then, she and I have stayed in touch. I love you girl and I am so glad you are there for me.
