Im at the edge of the cliff. Standing and gazing up above at the people soaring high with their full fledged wings wide open. How do I get up there? I have no guidance because my parents, whom I solely depend on my entire life does not know either.
In a recent video that featured Steve Harvey, he discussed about how we need to take the jump. Its okay to be afraid. It depends on what you define as happiness. Are you alright with seeing others soar in the air ? Do you want to be like them? If you want to learn to fly, the first lesson you need to learn is to fall. When you take that leap of faith off the cliff, you’re going to get hurt, get scraped along the edge of the cliff, struggle and maybe fall. But you will eventually learn a very valuable lesson and learn how to fly.
My theory is, just take the jump. Don’t be afraid to fall. If you stay put, you’re never getting anywhere in life. Take the jump. For even if you fall, you learned a beautiful lesson and you gave yourself a chance in life. Your chance to use the wings you were given. To soar. Even if you end up fancying a life on the ground after having a taste of flying, you had a life well lived. You made full use of your time and opportunity and you made it happen.
When you’re old enough and have kids to tell your stories to, they will look up to you and you’ll have an amazing life story to portray. Do not be afraid. What’s the worst that could happen? You won’t die. Its an amazing journey where you truly find yourself.
Live life to your full potential. Take the jump!
