Leap of faith

I came across a quote recently that said “the destination is not what’s important; what’s important is the journey.”

We are urged throughout our life to be cautious and aware of our actions. But sometimes, we need to let loose, we need to take chances and risks. Trial and error is an important part of our social development and emotional growth. We can’t truly appreciate our successes without understanding failure.

So today I urge you all to try something new. It could be as small as taking a different route on your way home. Maybe you’ll find a new coffee shop or restaurant along the way. It could be as large as sky diving or climbing a mountain. It could be something that enhances your character like learning a new language or taking dance classes. Or even something that feeds your soul like volunteering.

Try something. Experience everything. Learn from your mistakes. Take a leap of faith!

    I work for a state governmental agency and are so risk-averse it’s ridiculous. Everyone who’s a political appointee is terrified of making a decision because that makes them vulnerable to backlash if things go wrong. Blame is the coin of our realm. It’s dispiriting. I already agree with what you’ve written, but it’s a real boost to hear it from someone else, too. Thanks!
