Leaps of Faith

 “Sometimes your only available transportation is a leap of faith.” Margaret Shepherd

A friend gave me a card with this quote on it several years ago. Periodically I read it and consider the wisdom in its simplicity. Wise as it is, the underlying message is not always so easy to follow. Or is it?

I’ve spent the last year deconstructing me: who I am, my priorities, my values, my relationships. It’s been an exciting process that started with a simple question, “If you could do anything, what would you do?” Sadly, I wasn’t sure how to answer the question, but I was determined to find out.

I’ve emerged much happier, and driven by the desire to stop doing what I should do, and start doing what I want to do. I’ve bought my ticket… have you?
