Taking a leap of Faith

The movers and shakers throughout history outwardly appear to have missed the developmental line for acquiring the emotion known as fear or failure. Many live their whole lives free spirited, able, and willing to jump into the next new trend, or better yet pave their own path. This nostalgic behavior built men and women like Abraham Lincoln, Harriet Tubman, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Ronald Reagan, Mother Theresa, Margaret Thatcher, and so many more. I however, joined in that line of fear and failure and must have asked for a double scoop. I’ve lived my life safe, erred on the side of caution, and with little willingness to tempt fates. But not anymore, I have willing joined those who jump into new pools, swim around, and then change course as things happen. A small bit inside sweats in the corner, as this change shatters all those things I’ve habitually shied away from to avoid jumping into a new pool. Nope, today I did it! I’m willingly swimming around in the next big pool. Today I get a little dirty. Today I embark anew. Today I take the leap of faith.
