Take a Leap

A while back I announced (in my blog and to the Universe in general) that if something isn’t a “Fuck Yes!” then it’s a “No”. I trust that everything is always working out for me if I just flow with the energy… Admittedly, I did forget that for a while…. Lots of things in life can knock you off your intuitive path.

Lately, I’m just flowing along… doing my thing… remembering to be appreciative of all I see around me without a business plan or a 5-year plan… just an idea of the general direction I’d like to go, but open to any surprises the Universe wants to throw in there to make the journey even better. So many awesome things have flowed right in. And I am so very appreciative. So many things in life require a leap of faith… just a knowing it will all work out the way it’s supposed to.

Yesterday I was having a conversation with myself in the shower (I do that sometimes) … thinking about all the times I have just taken a leap and gone for stuff. Then I said out loud – “Universe, it would be cool if you would send me a sign that I’m doing the right things – just trusting… and doing things that bring me joy – with no real plan.” Then I went on about my day and forgot about it… I read an article about yoga and the phrase “take a leap of faith” was in the text and it caught my eye… Then I listened to a real estate podcast while doing dishes – yeah, they used that phrase in the talk too… Then I got in the car to run to the store and a Bruce Springsteen song came on – Lucky Town – and he was singing about a leap of faith. I just had to laugh. Got it Universe. Came home and turned on the television and some car commercial immediately came on that said it too! I was like – Okay Universe… I really got it… very funny – thank you. If the Universe wants to answer so quickly and clearly, maybe I should ask for the winning lottery numbers – LOL.

I was talking with a friend recently about taking chances and trying things. They said they prefer to mostly just stick with what they know works (kind of) for them… something about “the devil you know” and that it is too scary to just put themselves out there and take chances. In a nice way I tried to tell them if you don’t take a chance – you will never know. The worst that can happen is it won’t work out… you will “fail” but that’s okay because you will learn something and besides you will for sure “fail” if you never even try… wouldn’t you rather at least try? Sometimes you might have to try more than once but you won’t regret trying… you will only regret not trying. They then told me they might try “a little” … fuck… that’s just as bad as not trying at all. If you are going to do something – do it all the way… give it your best! Take that fucking leap of faith and try your best with your whole heart! If it doesn’t work out, at least you know you really tried … and you will have no regrets! Really living requires leaps of faith… so does love… especially love.

They said they would still have regrets because what if they looked like a fool and people knew they didn’t accomplish what they went for. My attitude is who cares what someone else thinks? It’s not their life. You are in charge of yours… give it all you’ve got… but that’s me… we are having lunch next week; I hope they went for it and surprised themselves. Especially in love, you have to take chances… reach for the fruit higher up on the tree… not the bruised shit on the ground – LOL.

Freedom is what it’s all about… freedom to go for what brings you joy. Freedom in everything… love, work, life… happiness is freedom. Sometimes freedom requires a little courage. Small acts of courage can change your whole life. Even tiny things can change the whole trajectory of everything… stepping down off my soapbox now – LOL

I will not speak of SCROTUS … I have no words – not any positive ones anyway.

A complex creation that chooses to be quite simple - LOL. I earnestly try to approach life with unconditional love and non-judgement... but I'm only human and perfectly imperfect :)

One thought on “Take a Leap

  1. Every time I took that leap of faith, my life changes in mysterious ways. Unfortunately it is true that one must have thick skin to defend against the petty individuals who will laugh at us for doing something like that. It is a projection of their own fears.

    And I have nothing nice to say about the Supreme Court as well.
