Leap, and the net will appear

…said American naturalist and essayist John Burroughs.

Too often, we hold ourselves back, so whenever anyone takes a leap, I feel energized. Of course, one person’s big leap is another’s small. But that’s the beauty of leaps; they’re personal and meaningful only to the leaper.

People can encourage you to leap but the leap comes from you only when you’re ready to leap. Notice I didn’t say “want to.” Most of us want to leap, but often we’re not ready till we just can’t stand it anymore.

You have to beware the naysayers, those who want to hold you back or infuse doubt into your plan. Prudence is all well and good, but warnings usually come from a place of fear or envy, cloaked as wisdom.

The reason the net will appear?

Because you bothered to take the leap. In other words, there’s always a positive outcome from any change. It’s a law of the universe. That’s why waiting till there’s a net before you leap is unnecessary…..©Jane Pellicciotto,  Allegro Design

Ah, at long last, leap into spring. Spring arrives today and it came in with a return to cooler temps. Close to freezing this am, but the 55mph winds have blown themselves out, at least for this morning.

Time change, Spring break, St Paddy’s day, I may celebrate spring by taking a nap. Plus, I had to change a light-bulb this morning. Glad my wife has the energy to jump!

Jump for joy on your journey††nada te turbe††jim
