Yesterday I jumped off a very high cliff into the clearest water I have seen to date. To get to the top of the cliff, I had to climb a pretty steep and not so safe wall of rocks. I knew this was a risk but I encouraged myself to follow through with the climb. This was a risk, but in my truest of heart, I knew that I wouldn’t be living life to the fullest if I didn’t take the jump. I have taken risks my entire life, this had to easy right?. I made it to the top, and that in itself was major because I have always had difficulty with climbing. I was proud that I made it to the top. I peered over the cliff, and the jump that didn’t seem so high from the ground had revealed it’s true face. This was scary and higher than I assumed. The water was pristine, heavenly. I hesitated for a moment and thought “ I can’t do this”, but I also knew It would be much harder to climb down those rocks. I was nervous. There was encouragement from on lookers who directed me on exactly where in the water to jump. I paused a little longer questioning myself and just said to my self sweetly “Go” “Trust”. I took the jump and the feeling that overcame me as the ground left my feet frightened and exhilarated me. There was a moment where I felt a gamble going on between life and death as my shriek could be heard throughout the echoes of the river. I landed. The water was no longer cold. This wasn’t any ordinary experience this was something more. Almost baptismal. When I arose from the bottom of the river there were cheers. I could not believe I did it. I was renewed, I was clean, and clearer than ever that I cannot live life in the corners of my passions, my dreams, my hopes. I have to once again reach for what I know I need and deserve. I realized I am not being my truest self, and that my dreams, and passions are what guide me through this life and I need to follow them. I encourage you all to tackle your fears, take that risk, make that plunge into the unknown. You are capable and never alone. #ItTakesAVillage
