Leap

"I guess what I'm trying to say is I don't think you can measure life in terms of years. I think longevity doesn't necessarily have anything to do with happiness. I mean happiness comes from facing challenges and going out on a limb and taking risks. If you're not willing to take a risk for something you really care about, you might as well be dead." -Diane Frolov

I recently wrote a fear narrative for english about the first time I went cliff jumping, Its also titled Leap. What can I say, it must be a favorite or something.

Its powerful, that word Leap.
Risks.
Chances.
Risking it all for a hope of what could happen.
Taking a chance to change something for the better.

You tell me, is it better to play it safe and have a grand ol' time in our comfort zone, or to push ourselves to do things we never thought we could and become better people?
I think if you're not willing to take a risk for something you really care about, you might as well be dead. ^ (see what I did there heh heh)

Now of course my fellow beings this does not mean to be stupid.
Its kinda like the whole "YOLO" concept. This is not an excuse to do stupid things, but rather a motivation to do things that help you grow as a person.

Takings risks can be Scary. Terrifying. Difficult. But completely and utterly worth it.
In my experience and I would hope in yours, something good always comes out of taking that Leap. Even if you have a bad or say, undesirable, thing happen, it still helps you learn and grow and stretch yourself.

The more you Leap, the closer you are to being who you are capable of being.

Don't let fear rule you, be who you know you are and then even more.
Love people while you can.
Enjoy life.
Write letters.
Buy old typewriters and film cameras.
Draw.
Write your soul dry.
Appologize.
Make someones day.
Wake up early to stretch and make a nice breakfast.
TAKE RISKS.
Compliment others.
Don't regret anything.
Just, simply, Leap.

That's where happiness lies.
Fear nothing, you have all the help you need, love. (Wherever it may be coming from.)


 
 


 




Just, simply, Leap.
Change your life.
You choose how your story ends.
