Sometimes you just have to pick your feet up and take that leap...and hope for the best.
A few years ago, our family took a leap...we sold our gorgeous property and home, packed up everything we owned that we didn't sell, said goodbye to our family and friends, and took a giant leap of faith. I'd be lying if I said there weren't days I regretted that decision...when I feel lonely and misunderstood, when I feel like noone seems to understand (or care) how hard that was and what a sacrifice it was for my whole family. 👋
But, then there are days that I see the growth in it. I see how little things have come together into big things, how community is being built here, how neighborhoods seem to change around us, and how many opportunities we've had to be a Blessing to people we never knew 3 years ago. And I think to myself...what a wonderful world. 🙄
But, seriously...life, mine at least, has a way of surprising you. Of knocking you upside down and bum up, surprising you. Of flipping your reality before your eyes, surprising you. Of punching you in the face right of the blue, surprising you. Of...well, you get the point. Life can hurt, but in a good way in the end, even if not in the moment...once you figure out the why and the who of it all. I feel confident we made the right decision, I know there are things at work I have yet to completely comprehend. So, for now, we continue on, feet up and faith in full-swing.
So...take the leap. Jump as high as you can muster strength for, and let the tire swing of life catch you!
Let me know...how have you leaped lately?
