Take the Leap

You guys, sometimes one of you will post something that just resonates with me. Whether it is your post topic, a quote you shared, a picture, just something really sinks in and I sit and think about it and take the words as a sign.

Over the past week I have seen a few posts and then my Momentum dashboard quote one day is literally telling me that it is time. Ok universe, I get it!!!

While this is totally vague, and I hate vague things, today’s post is more of a reminder to all of us. What are we waiting for? Life is short, and we just don’t know how much time we have to do all the things that we want to do. We keep waiting and saying well when this happens or that happens I will be ready. The truth is, you can never be 100% ready. Taking the first step is on you. Now is as good as a time as any.

You will become courageous. You will become an inspiration. You will like yourself. You will learn new things. You will grow. You just have to take that leap of faith.

Have you ever really listened to the amazing words of Switchfoot?

By taking a leap of faith, you find out who you are truly capable of becoming. Faith sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible; it’s about believing when it’s beyond the power of reason to believe. And courage is being scared to death, and then taking the next step anyway. May you always find the faith and courage to do what you are afraid to do. - read: http://www.marcandangel.com/2014/02/16/15-things-you-must-give-up-to-be-happy-again/:

Take a leap of faith:


One of the benefits of working with really talented writers is that they are always coming up with quotes that inspire us, make us laugh, and have us saying, “So! True!” We’re an impatient bunch here at Think.Make.Share. We didn’t want to wait for these quotes to be printed on cards ...

Everything you've ever wanted is on the other side of fear.:

    I think about this all the time and since I am on old lady I can tell you… it’s true. Take the leap. Do it now, whatever “it” is. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. And… you will never regret trying!

    I do not agree with waiting for Friday, next week, summer, when I lose the weight, when I’m ready. Life is too short.

    Yes take the chance, do the thing! You only have one short life with which to do all the things.

    I adore Switchfoot! They’re words are incredible.

    I agree; if you wait for the perfect time, you’ll wait forever because it’s never the perfect time for anything. Just stop waiting and do.

    100% true, life is too short! We should go for it because we might not be here tomorrow!

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo January 28, 2016 at 1:10 pm

    I love this! That last one is one of my favorite quotes. I feel like this resonates with me too, I feel like I finally took that leap and it paid off, because I’m leaving the job that I felt stuck in, but secure in, and the leave is a risk, but an oh so good one! I can’t wait to hear more about what you are jumping off into friend!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis January 28, 2016 at 1:30 pm

    You’re so right. Life is too short not to risk it so take that leap of faith.

  • Reply Amy @ Getz Girl on Fire January 28, 2016 at 1:33 pm

    Always a great reminder . . . and I’m excited to hear about what good things are coming for you! And yes, life is short so just do it!

    Time goes by so fast, already. I can’t believe it and I really feel lately that I don’t want to waste it doing something I’m not happy with!

  • Reply Erin @ TexErin-in-SydneyLand January 28, 2016 at 11:31 pm

    I laugh at myself sometimes because I see these “take a leap”, “take risks”, “just jump” memes…especially the one that says something to the effect “I want to quit my job, fall in love, run away” type sentiment…because I did just that. (moving from TX to Oz) But, I’ve found that I will know use it as my crutch. Why be risky now? I’ve already moved half way around the world. Well, because my life isn’t over. I need to continue to leap, to jump, to risk to experience even more of what this great life has to offer.

  • Reply Cara January 29, 2016 at 10:00 am

    Love, Love, Love this! I think it’s always interesting to look back on that “moment” or “step” that you finally took and to see how much it really impacted and changed your life. We sometimes sit by in fear of taking risks, when like you said we only have one life to live and we need to live it! Great post, Nadine! 🙂

  • Reply Lindsay @ Broke & Bougie January 31, 2016 at 9:33 pm

    Love love love all of these!
