I’ve always wanted to skydive. To feel my heart about to come out of my mouth, to stop myself from vomiting upward into my own face, to fall and be yanked back in the nick of time.
But leaping didn’t happen that way. I decided it would be way more fun to quit my day job and freelance write full time. Like the guy in The Shining.

I believe God is happy with you for taking this leap! I look forward to reading about all the ups and downs of this journey. Wonderfully written post, as always!

No groaning; all cheering. Regardless of the outcome. You took that leap. That is a success in and of itself. You are chasing your dream. That is never a groan, disappointment, or anything of the (negative) like. Chasing your dream can only be seen as a cheer…and if it means some roadblocks on the way, well those are just roadblocks and opportunities for lessons learned for your next leap. Go with the wind (and your heart!)! You have my utmost respect and support!!!
Wow, if I could fit all that on a bumper sticker…! And, yes, I feel like the leap is the key no matter what the outcome. I’ll learn from every bit of it and be braver for the next change.
