I was standing on the pier last night, looking over the edge at the dark sea, and like usual, all I wanted was to Jump. I have this fascination with the ocean, a quite wicked one, but I believe it’s just very intimate. I’ve always loved the open waters, the sounds, and smells, but the only problem is that I never learned how to swim. Oddly enough, when I’m standing by the edge, I’m never afraid, and all I want is to close my eyes and jump.
I think part of the fear is that we know.
We know that we are afraid and that mental block stops us from jumping, even when that’s all we want to do.
We know we deserve more out of life, but it’s terrifying.
The simple act of taking the metaphoric leap into the dark cold ocean of
unknowns and fears,
Well, it’s petrifying until we jump.
I believe that everything we desire and crave is on the
other side of the unknown, over the barrier our mind creates to protect us from
pain, not knowing that sometimes it’s what we need in order to grow. Even if you do not know how to swim, Jump.
Part of growing is learning as you go.
