Leap of Faith

“Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.”
There are so many times when I over-think things. Whether it’s about anything such as what to buy, what class to take, where to go for dinner, or more serious things that I don’t think you care to know about…I just keep thinking. Sometimes, I’ll try to figure out my answer on my own and other times, I’ll go to people for advice. Most of the time though, I’ll know my answer ahead of time and just need some convincing. After a long week of discussing something like this with others, I realized that I was just wasting time and pushing back what it is that I do/don’t want to do. And then I realized, it’s time to just take a leap of faith. Stop thinking. Stop analyzing. Stop asking people. Just jump right in because what’s the worst that will happen? You don’t know. You also don’t know what the best could be.  

Honestly, just check out this video and be that penguin! http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=TRj6RZ3nFpU …it’s really cute and inspiring 🙂

I know some of you very well and am sure you’re wondering “what if I don’t believe in God, who am I supposed to have faith in?” You. Your parents. Your friends. Your educators. Whoever you want! (But definitely you.) It depends on the situation. When you first rode a bicycle, you had faith in your parents. You knew that they were there for you and you trusted them. (Forget about the fact that they actually let go of the bicycle when they said they wouldn’t…they technically just had a lot of faith in you!!)

But basically, I just wanted to say: stop thinking and go for it. What if opening that door will give you the world’s happiness, even if it’s labeled “do not open”? How will you know until you actually open it? You won’t. Plus, life’s not fun when you follow all the rules. After all, rules are meant to be broken! So go on and have some fun in life. Take risks and see where it gets you!
