you know that feeling when you’re about to jump into the pool off the side for the first time as a kid? and you’re really unsure about how deep the water is because well it sure looks a lot deeper than 3 feet and well, yes your mom and dad are there waiting to catch you just in case, but man it looks deep, do you dare to take the leap?
it’s the feeling just as your feet leave the ledge and you’ve completely let go, trusting yourself to the arms that await you.
that’s what my life feels like right now.
like i’m teetering on the edge of a cliff and i have a decision to make.
to go backwards is safety, the familiar, things i’ve known and are comfortable to me.
to fall forwards is to accept the unknown and embrace the risk.
but i also feel like i don’t have much of a choice.
i mean, at least to me it’s very clear.
stagnation never ends well. where there is no growth there is no life.
i do not know what changes will come about in the near future but as i choose to step off the cliff, whenever i may encounter it, i fully know that i am safe in arms that have promised to never let me go.
that will always be enough.
