Leap of Faith

It takes a leap of faith to get things going
It takes a leap of faith you gotta show some guts
It takes a leap of faith to get things going
In your heart you must trust.

~Bruce Springsteen

The world is wide open.  Opportunities exist at every turn.  While stability is a gift, sometimes you just have to take a ‘leap of faith’ and then hang on for the ride. 🙂

Honoring your soul can be scary if it means you have to leave the norm you have known.  My personal philosophy isn’t easy for most, but it is the only way that I can walk in the world. Believe that doors will open and they will; breathe deeply and know that each breath leads where you need to go.

Freedom is not given to us by anyone; we have to cultivate it ourselves. It is a daily practice… No one can prevent you from being aware of each step you take or each breath in and breath out.”

~Thich Nhat Hanh

 One week ago, I took a leap of faith by deciding to “officially” make some professional changes; I found the strength to listen to the inner voice that resides inside my soul.  The risk is huge, but sometimes you have to listen to that silent voice inside yourself.  Regardless of the fear, you have to take one step in front of the other and create the path that will honor who you are.

The challenge is that honoring yourself has a cost; sometimes you have to disappoint those you love and respect.  In the midst of reality, take a big breath and realize that loving yourself has to trump all.  With one life to live, soaring is the option that will propel you forward.

May each of us be blessed to walk gently within our world.

May we have the courage to love ourselves and honor that which we need.

May kindness always be a guiding force for good.

Some days are full of questions; some days are full of answers.  My hope is that I find balance with both and do the right thing for all who I touch, including myself.
