I jumped today without a parachute.
I decided to take all the risks and follow a dream, follow my heart and put to use all my gifts.
That is not to say I am not terrified, I am.
What will I become?
Will I end up destitute and homeless?
Will I leave my mark on this world and inspire someone?
The thoughts running wildly through my head are so jumbled there isn’t a coherent verse to put down.
I risked it all today.
I am leaving behind a career I have held for almost 20 years. I am setting my soul free from the corporate cage. I am going to nurture my soul and stop living a practical, passive life.
I am setting my heart free today.
I told the man I am madly in love with exactly how I feel and even if it is not reciprocated I will be the woman who took risks. I will not live with regret. I will be able to openly say that I opened every last bit of life left in me to the universe and trusted that I would sprout wings.
I am leaping off that fragile limb in an attempt to save myself, my sanity, my heart, my soul.
I am putting everything on the line, to gain what I want the most. Freedom. I want a free heart, a free soul.
I jumped today without a parachute, but I am not one for soft landings.
