...of leaping...

to be courageous
is to take shortcuts:
instead of procrastinating,
and pondering
all possible outcomes yet again,
you take a flying jump...
and land amid the action.
you'll only feel lost
if you didn't commit wholeheartedly
in the first place.
commitment plus courage takes you
right where you want to be.
~1,001 way to live in the moment

light + objects= shadows.
travel to HEY HARRIET
it's a new year.
where will you be leaping?
just BE.

Ooh, I like this. Nice sense of mystery.

The subject contains steps. We can climb out of the hole we dug one step at a time. Of course, we keep our eyes on the prize at each step, we never lose sight of our aim. Be it all at once or gradually, we look ahead, our goals yet to be attained...

A beautiful sliver of light down where one might not notice. Unless, you were a shadow addict...

Hey Harriet said...

I was wondering what the image was and discovered from a previous comment it's chippy pillars! Too cool! Yes we do need to commit wholeheartedly when taking flying jumps. Love this post and thanks so much for your lovely words on my blog. xo

Well, that's me...always got my toe in the door somewhere! I love it when you can be talking to someone and an idea just pops into your head and you just GO FOR IT...that happens to me all the time, sometimes people look at me like I just looped the loop...but that's OK...I DID!!!

Heehee...hey Tilda got any spare chocolate stashes for all that snow you've been getting. We've been lucky...knock on wood...just one of them years, but then again...I have a stash!
