The last two leaps of faith I took had quite a few steps leading up to the leaping moment.
In retrospect it’s fascinating to see how one thing built on the next and then there I was, ready to leap.
Both times I started to doubt myself at certain points. Both times somebody unexpectedly nudged me to keep going.
They didn’t push me up or talk me up, they just reminded me to trust myself.
One of my yoga teachers would often ask, “What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?” I loved that question because it let me dream, it set me free, it tricked my mind into venturing out of its perfect, safe little box.
Leaping I’m realizing is actually just letting go. Letting go of how I need it to be, how I want it to be, how I wish it would be, and stepping onto the solid ground of how it is and into the enormous potential of working with what I have.
Letting go is often as easy as looking within.
Looking within and fanning the flame of life so that you can see your way clearly and inspire others to light themselves up as well.
