Got to take a leap of faith, sometimes

This week, I took a leap of faith that paid off. Not a payout in terms of money, new job, or anything of any monetary value. This leap paid off in terms of feeling accomplished and that I made someone, very important to me, very happy. Some were skeptical. Some worried. Some cautioned me. I had to throw that proverbial caution to the wind. At the end of the day, I showed my son that indeed, I get things done. In his eyes, I always fix or make things happen. He also got to see that taking a leap of faith can be risky, but the rewards can stay with you forever.

I was reminded of the other leaps of faith I have taken in life. They were grand and path setting. I was reminded of how I’ve been contemplating a big change in my life that would be scary. I’ve been halted in my tracks, as a result. But that need not be. I need to do this. I have never let fear and doubt bring me to a standstill. I need to get back on that rollercoaster and face fear head on. Time to leap again and again.
