Leap before you look…


I know that’s not how the saying goes, but if you looked, would you take that leap?  Probably not.  Sometimes it is better to go ahead and make that jump…just don’t forget to attach bungee cords to yourself.  In life, your bungee cords can be your friends and family.  A few of my friends made some life changing decisions lately, and now we are all wondering how that will work.

It is highly possible that we second guess ourselves at every turn and wonder if we made the right decision.  We might even, oh say lie awake at night and then when we fall asleep, have very strange dreams about going back to college and Dumbledore being your professor.  I mean, I don’t know anyone who has done this, but if I did, I would tell them to stop drinking coffee late at night and go to bed.  It sounds like this dream was telling someone to go back to school and get a master’s degree, but I can’t be sure.

If you have changed jobs this year, consider yourself lucky.  Don’t fret about the new job (yes I know that’s easier said than done, this is me you’re listening to), embrace it as best you can and be positive.  Positive thoughts help us overcome the negative that threatens to overpower us.  Once again, I know this is not easy, but with practice, you can do this.  I recently had to remove someone who was being very negative on my social networking site.  I rarely ever have to do this, but we are grown people and sometimes you need to act that way.  I didn’t even have to think twice about it.

Make a list of some things you want to try but haven’t had the courage to do.  Put your bungee cord on and go for it.  Right now, before you talk yourself out of it.  The worst thing that can happen is you’ll bounce back.  Seriously.
