I have a fear of flying. I'm scared of heights. I'm mortified to step onto the dance floor. I've never been on a roller coaster (well, not a real one -- I guess you can't count the one in the kiddie park.) All these things take a giant leap of faith, trusting the universe, letting go.... believing.
And yet, I know that someday I'll do these things I'm afraid of. I'll board an airplane again because I want to go places and see the seven wonders of the world. I'll climb a steep mountain because I want to experience the breathtaking view from the summit. And while I may not go sky diving or bungee jumping (that might be asking a little TOO much), I'll step onto the dance floor someday and twirl and spin and take that leap -- and fly. See -- that beautiful dancer in the photo below by muchadesign? That's me someday. Really. I trust... and believe.
Until next time.
