NOT Looking Before You Leap

Friday, January 28, 2011

We have heard it all of our lives. The phrase, "Look before you leap." 

I have been thinking about this phrase a lot lately in terms of my own life and everything that is going on. My whole life I have done just this phrase. Looked before I leaped. Weighed out every decision and everything that I have done that could potentially affect my life in the future.

Well, I think it is about time I leap without looking and see where it gets me.

The thought of doing this makes me nervous but it also makes me a little giddy inside. Who knows what just going for it will make happen in my life. Maybe it won't work out the best but at least I went for it. Or it could work out for me in wonderful ways. I won't know until I do it.

Everyone should have one of these decisions at some point in their lives. A time where you just go for something wholeheartedly because you want it in that moment no matter what might happen in a day, month or year. It gives you empowerment over your own life and how you want to live it. And if it fails you can still look back and know how you felt at that moment you leaped without looking and it will get you through.

Think of all the opportunities that could be missed if you are always so cautious, always look before you leap. I am not saying be completely irresponsible and just go through life willy nilly but let caution to the wind sometimes. That is where the greatest moments might come from.

So where will not looking before you leap get YOU? Why don't you find out!

~When you're young, your whole life is about the pursuit of fun. Then, you grow up and learn to be cautious. You could break a bone or a heart. You look before you leap and sometimes you don't leap at all because there's not always someone there to catch you. And in life, there's no safety net. When did it stop being fun and start being scary?~
