A leap of faith?

When was the last time you took a leap of faith?

I mean a real leap of faith.

The kind that makes your cells sing.
And makes the earth not only shake with you – but applaud you with little trails of generously sprinkled signs that you are on the right track.
Where you weep with gratitude, vibrate with fear, and explode with the joy of being you  all simultaneously?
And you feel more alive than you have ever, ever felt.
And you know that yes, on this day, because of that leap you took – your game changed forever.
And it was you, in all of your clumsy, provocative, raw womanly glory, changing your game and creating a new future for yourself.
By leaping.
With faith.
In yourself.

Most of us were never really taught what a leap of faith even means.
Or how to do it.

Because women that take leaps of faith are the women who step outside of the conventional, and recreate the world.

They are the change makers. The ones who see the future, and recreate the future, for all of us. And they are the ones who have lives that are really and truly worth living.

Sometimes they make headlines.
Jane Goodall, in 1957, a simple secretary, of 23, with no degree, chose to go and live in the jungles of Tanzania to research chimpanzees. She became the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees, running her own institute.
Maya Angelou, who had been born to poverty and abuse, worked as a fry cook, a prostitute, and a nightclub dancer – somehow found the courage to write her first book, then many more, and ended up being honored by reading a poem at Obama’s inauguration and earning 50 honorary degrees in her lifetime.

And sometimes they quietly change their world, and we all benefit.
All the unknown but miraculous women who make tiny incremental leaps of faith towards love. Or creative expression.
Or standing for what they know is right in the face of dissension.

Becoming a turned on, tuned in, self-respecting, fully embodied woman is not a given.
Heartbreakingly, in most corners of this world it is not even an option.
Nor is it a simple task.
It requires reflection.
Tapping into one’s truth.
Speaking out.
Taking risk.
Standing for the sweetest, most tender shoots of one’s own practically unnameable desires.

And, just like all aspects of figuring out how to be human in the best possible way, a leap of faith is not something you should do just once in your life. It’s actually something you can get rather good at. Once you have leapt once, you can leap again and again, bigger and bolder with every go. A leap of faith requires practice.

Most of us are taught to have faith in something outside of ourselves.
We’re encouraged to put all of our confidence or trust in something or someone else. Our parents, our husband, our boss. A political party.

We’re taught to believe that if you go to a good college and get a degree, you can get a job. Or if you follow all the doctrines of your church, your life will be worth more. Or if you play by the rules in your corporate job you will have career advancement and be able to retire at 65 with a pension.

This kind of ‘faith’ is not often the kind that brings a woman further and deeper inside her love affair with herself.

It doesn’t make her feel overwhelmed with the joy of being alive. If anything, it kind of kills off her life force. Because she knows she has compromised on her truth.

My parents’ greatest dream for me was that one day I would become a nurse in my brother’s medical practice, work part-time, and raise babies with my husband.

Instead, I chose a different kind of faith. Rather than shrink myself to follow their limitations,
I took a leap of faith. (Which is no picnic, either, at first.)

Choosing to choose myself, above their expectations, was my first leap.
How was I supposed to believe in myself when I had no track record?
How was I supposed to believe in myself when no one else did – in fact everyone else seemed convinced that the last place that I should look for my next steps was inside my own heart and soul?
How could I leap when I was not seeing very many women making the choice to choose themselves over the expectations of others?

A leap of faith is a requirement for a woman who wants to truly live her destiny.
It is a requirement for a woman who wants to choose her own aliveness and leave her mark on the world.

It’s important to recognize that many men have been taking leaps of faith for years. They don’t feel the need, as we do, to double and triple check our work and be absolutely certain of our own qualifications before taking the next steps.

As Elizabeth Gilbert says in her wonderful book, Big Magic,

“Too many women still seem to believe that they are not allowed to put themselves forward at all, until both they and their work are perfect and beyond criticism. Meanwhile, putting forth work that is far from perfect rarely stops men from participating in the global cultural conversation. Just sayin’ . . . sometimes, strangely enough, it works – a man who seems not ready for the task, not good enough for the task, somehow grows immediately into his potential through the wild leap of faith itself. I only wish more women would risk these same kinds of wild leaps.”

She goes on to cite the way we have been treated in all of human history as the reason that women do not take big risks, like men. And concludes, “…we women must break this habit in ourselves – and we are the only ones who can break it.”

She is right; we must break this habit. And develop a new one – a new habit which is about taking our place on the world’s stage and as a vibrant, fully expressed creatrix of our own lives.

We can do this.
In fact, we must do this.
We do not have time to waste in re-digging the trenches of other people’s expectations.

The true nature of a woman does not ignite until she has made her desires her north star, and has started off with teeny awkward leaps, in the direction of her dreams.

Leaps of faith do not have to be so graceful. The important thing is to just jump, vault, or skip. A little. Bit by bit. Even a hop of faith is awesome.
We will gain momentum, and game, with practice.

Instead of counting on one another to compromise, let’s count on one another to leap, with faith, in the direction of our dreams.
You know, deep inside, every cell of you wants to.

In the comments below, I want to know:

  • Where in your life are you on the precipice of a leap of faith?
  • How would you leap, if you had the courage and confidence that everything would work out?
  • When have you taken a leap of faith before, and how did it go?

You have an opportunity to take a leap of faith right now.
Be it a tiny leap or a massive game-changing leap – you have the choice to trust and reach for your desire, right now.

We all do.
It’s time.

    I took a leap of utter faith when I met my soulmate about 3 years ago. I never looked back, and I was right on the money about everything. Now that my life is better than ever, I’m cutting back my semi-workaholic tendencies and fulfilling my lifelong dream of traveling as often as possible. I do credit the Sister Goddesses here for encouraging me to keep the faith while searching for my soulmate. They were spot on! I’d love to take even more leaps, despite the fact that my life is so damn good and no longer needs revamping. I don’t know what’s next. Seek to leap, or relax and savor?

  • Holly Watson December 26, 2015, 10:46 pm

    I made a huge leap of faith this year by leaving my sad, dead, relationship of over 20 years. Next was to attend the event in Miami, which started to crack me open – enough for me to sign up for Mastery 2016! I’m not sure what my next leap will be, but am really excited to take it!

  • Goddess Stacey December 24, 2015, 7:44 am

    Thank you Mama Gena for this email about taking a Leap of Faith. I have been going through my metamorphasis for 10+ years (Leaving my ex, moving out on my own, buying a house for me and my sons, starting in two 12-step programs and currently celebrating 6 years in one that has changed my life the most, meeting an amazing man who has been my adventure partner now for 2 1/2 years). In this past year I’ve become stuck, even while moving forward on my own personal awarenesses and growth. I have been struggling with finding my passions, and finding ways to live them. My boyfriend gave me the money to attend Miami Immersion. Although a MG follower for years, that helped me in many ways. Reading the Leap of Faith email inspired me to write a Desire, which I feel is my new business mission statement. It will be a leap of faith to jump further in and start my dream job through my own business. It is also a Leap of Faith that I do this even though the signs my corporate job will be crashing (I see signs). I continue even though I am unsure of the status of my Love life. I forge forward even knowing the huge debt I carry will be a stress. But. I want to feel ALIVE. I Desire to feel the passions MG always talks about being so key. Doing this, will be my biggest Leap of Faith.
    I appreciate all my SG who are supportive in so many ways!!

    I fell in love with a new concept, a travel club social network, my husband and I sold everything we had to help start the company, our house in Burbank California, our cars, we downgraded our expenses massively, and for the first year of the company we worked beyond what we thought was possible. Ten years later, it’s become the largest travel direct sales company in the world, it beat out Expedia in multiple awards, and now my husband and I travel for a living and we get to empower entrepreneurs around the world. It’s pretty surreal how we both left our jobs as police officer and government employee and took a huge dive…and it worked!! Loving life now!!

  • Abbie December 18, 2015, 1:40 am

    I’m on the precipice with a career change. I alternate between arrogant confidence and blinding fear. I have no idea what to expect. I would like to leave my safe but limited job to start my own business. I definitely want to feel excited about what I do again. How would I do it if I already had the confidence? Get more education and experience about what I want to do
    which is dog training. Then I would find business help and mentors. I want to have a dog day care, training and dog
    performance sport facility. Even
    saying it (writing it) out loud is pretty
    scary. In the past I have taken a leap. .. once when I went traveling alone for several months to New Zealand and Australia that turned out well. Now I have a family and I don’t know how to take care of them and go for it at the same time. ..

  • Melissa December 17, 2015, 7:48 pm

    Once again your blog is a complete inspiration and I agree completely – I’m in the middle of reading Big Magic too! I took a huge leap when I decided to change careers, move back home and get divorced after almost 20 years! The image I had for myself is leaping. I wrote this blog about the experience and wanted to share it with you because I so understand the courage and necessity for all women to leap no matter what their dream or vision professionally or personally. Once you decide to leap – the universe and GPS will take care of rest.

  • SG ABISOLA December 17, 2015, 6:31 pm

    Thank You, Mama Gena, for acknowledging, appreciating and accepting the awesomeness of every woman on this planet. It is because of the women in my life who took leaps of faith that I am where I am. From Harriet Tubman to Dr. Barbara Ann Teer, I see that magnificence flows from a woman who takes a leap of faith. It empowered them to live an extraordinary life full of adventure. My leap of faith was taking the SWA’s Mastery course a second time in 2015. Once I decided, the universe made the money and the time available. I am living out my life! Oh yeah! As A Ageless Goddess, I am preparing, planning and pursuing my heart’s desires and my pleasure desires with the kind of zest that seems to come because I said so and I asked. It is the power of commitment, sisterhood, self care and belief in the greater good that fuels me. I ride the waves of being in the now, forgive my past and move on with pleasure. Ready or not, 2016 is coming and I anticipate and desire a even better year!

  • Liz December 16, 2015, 11:25 pm

    I have told my husband of 14 years that our marriage is not joyful, and I need a divorce.
    He is stoic and has no joy…I am alive and love to live! I figured out that his stoicism is poison to my soul.
    Watch out world! Here I come! 🙂

  • Rebecca Forde December 16, 2015, 9:34 pm

    I read this today after taking my leap this month. I had become very comfortable in my work situation. ..I can work when I want, take as many or as few clients as I want, but with that cam a feeling of not really doing my bodywork modality justice. I do not want to promote that here, but it is a true healing modality. I mean LIFE changing for people. That is why I decided that after 17 years as a specialized massage therapist I decided to close my studio doors. I felt that until I can treat clients as often as they need I was really not doing the modality justice. Reducing my work load was not enough. I closed my doors to feel completely clear and open to the next opportunity. What I was not expecting was the small tremor of my loss of identity. Not expecting that AT ALL! So clearing and leaping I am! Last night I even had a physical clearing…vomiting and laying on the hallway floor for about 1 hour. To be clear, as awful as that was I had a sense that I was not in danger, but that it was a much needed release. I feel so on track today and ready for whatever comes my way. SO glad I tuned in to your website and can’t wait to share what comes next.

  • Kate December 16, 2015, 8:33 pm

    The place in my life where I’m on the precipice of a leap of faith is in ending my marriage. If I had the courage and confidence that everything would work out, I’d call a divorce attorney today and then tell my husband and daughter of my desire to be no longer married. I had the courage to leap in the past when I asked my mother to divorce my dad. It was so freakin hard but definitely worked out so great for all of us. It was necessary for all of us. I also leaped in faith when I left a great paying job in law which is what had felt like was the profession of my destiny. I left to become a teacher in a tough economy for teachers and got a job for the upcoming school year after completing my certification program – a time when everyone said how impossible that was. I took a leap of faith when I got married. I trusted I could do it even though I had promised myself I’d never marry after witnessing my parents’ marriage and then divorce. I suppose the marriage and my leap of faith has served its purpose in getting me to the place I am now – ready to take what feels like the biggest leap of faith of my life: divorce.

  • Deanne December 16, 2015, 8:14 am

    I am turning 35 in 2016. I made a huge leap this year…the biggest of my life. I left a troubling (although secure) job, and picked up and moved to a new city. I know no one; I am literally starting from scratch. I’ve spent most of my life in fight-or-flight mode. Now, that I am under a somewhat smaller amount of stress — I make substantially more money — I realize I have never been happy. I’ve always been working toward that next achievement, that next foothold, but I’ve never felt as if I truly ARRIVED. Well my goal for 2016, my 35th year on this planet is TO ARRIVE. 🙂 I want to travel, finish my book, and find a love for the ages. I’m still unsure of myself, but I hope stepping out on faith will guide me to where I need to be.

    • Radell December 16, 2015, 6:44 pm

      Hi Deanne, Wow, that is so powerful! I love your words and your courage! Good for you for stepping outside of your comfort zone. I know what you mean about always being in flight or fight mode. I live near a city and always thinking about moving. Being 35 and still unmarried I debate daily if I am still living somewhere true to myself. What made you finally move? And what is your book about?! 🙂 Congratulations on making a courageous life for yourself.

  • Miriam December 16, 2015, 7:30 am

    I had a dream…yes sound a bit Martin Lutherish – I was on a cliff edge looking down and around. A voice (I name it the universe) said “go walk across to the other side”. It was a chasm. I told that universe that no way was I going to walk to my death. The universe replied, “We love you. We will take care and keep you safe.” Yeah right I said. No way. The universe – well it nagged at me to walk – across that huge gap to the other side. I kept resisting until I said “right you want me to kill myself. Ok I will.” With purposeful steps I marched head up over the cliff and walked until I stopped. Then looked down. Holy cows! The path beneath me, yes a path, started to rock. I saw darkness and stress. The universe said “don’t look at what was look to the light. We are here.” So I kept going towards the light. I got to the other side. Such joy filled me. Sunsets of colour surrounded me. Fireworks of light were everywhere. The universe said well done. Go forth and conquer.
    I left my safe high school teaching job of 18 years. Highly stressful. I had many health issues from stress not now. I now am following my passion. Writing a medieval fiction novel set in 1104. Loving every day of my new career. It’s been a year now. Half way writing this saga. I’m excited. I walked over the edge. I know that the right editor and publisher or whatever will come my way when I have completed my book. So yes that’s my cliff hanger. I’m blessed to have a wonderful supportive husband and family and friends.

  • Rivky December 16, 2015, 4:24 am

    Leaps of faith, oh yes, !!! left 2
    Not easy had not much support at the time, but thankfully I had the faith to do it ,
    Leaped into my third and best one ,9 years ago
    And huge leap of faith is coming to mastery so unknown at the time the BEST thing I did, mama Gena , I will always be grateful to you!!!!

  • Melissa December 16, 2015, 4:19 am

    Thank you so much for this spectacular piece. I’ve been leaping since my late teens. The biggest leap by far was recently leaving my career of 15 years, my 5 year relationship and life behind to move to another city where I knew no one, had zero job prospects and no home, to pursue my dream of being a writer and burlesque dancer. It’s been wonderful, serendipitous and challenging all at the same time. I’ve grown so much that I hardly recognize my old self, and could not be happier!

  • Ami Ronnberg December 16, 2015, 2:24 am

    My leap of faith is to respond for the first time to a blog:
    Your letter about taking a leap of faith excites me, ignites me and makes my heart beat with joy. Thank you Mama Gina!

  • Rita December 16, 2015, 1:46 am

    Yes! Leaps of faith. Been doing that a lot recently…really going out of my comfort zone. Always worth it.

  • GuruNischan December 16, 2015, 1:40 am

    I just LOVE you!! I am leaping in such major ways in my life right now! I am eeeeking in joy and fear and all of the range of emotional keys that are playing through me right now! I am leaping into the LOVE that I am and allowing pleasure to be my indicator of movement in any direction. I am feeling deeply my anger, my rage, my guilt and shame of my sex, and surrendering to these deep places in me that I have hidden away for too long. I am loving myself in this place. FEELING myself so deeply is awakening new electrical currents in me. I feel an inner surge of sensations in me. Ready. Bursting. Beautiful.

  • Evelyn - The Toy Tamer December 16, 2015, 1:01 am

    Leaps are what make life sizzle! Without them, life is just same old, same old.

  • Barbara J. Simon December 15, 2015, 11:54 pm

    Over a decade ago, I did a Native American Vision Quest – designed for the psyche of women, with a female guide. It changed my life, set me in a new direction, solved some medical issues, and family tree mysteries. I’m still stunned by how valuable the process was. Now that I’m in a new phase of my life, needing to leap again, it has been remarkably valuable to look back on that Vision Quest structure and format, realizing that the fear I feel is akin to the fear I felt in the rituals. Am scared, alert, aware of my surroundings like an animal is aware of the forest, and I’m experienced at transforming. This next leap is going to be amazing. If you think you would benefit from a Vision Quest structure, with a guide, to show you how to move into the unknown in a healthy way – contact me.

    • Frances Charteris December 16, 2015, 3:30 pm

      Hi Barbara,
      I would love to know more about Vision Quest you went on.
      Thanks for offering more information.


  • vivienne Bruniges December 15, 2015, 11:38 pm

    But this time I have the support of Mama Gena and many many Sister Goddesses..I am a new woman, a brand new me.
    Thank you Mama Gena your school has helped me re find myself and re-focus the needs around myself for the first time…I am a shaky and wobbly at times and ready to stand in my own power for the first time.
    Thank You.

    • Frances Charteris December 16, 2015, 3:49 pm

      I quit teaching after 25 years as I promised myself I would. It was a leap of faith. I took
      others: moving to Jamaica, then Texas, New York, San Diego, Boulder, Paris …
      I dream of sensual hours and authentic living and creating—inspired by lovely SGs I met this year. Thank you, Mama Gena! Ready for mastery, open to deep change

  • vivienne Bruniges December 15, 2015, 11:33 pm

    In 1991 we emigrated from England to California to set up home with our 3 and 6 year old daughters, leaving our families behind. It has been an amazing career in the medical field and now I am ready for a new leap of faith.

  • Claudia December 15, 2015, 11:26 pm

    Love everything that you wrote, it’s exactly how I feel. Everyday I remind myself that I need to do this, to follow this path that is not perfect and clear. There’s no other way and I have tons of faith that’s pushing me along! ❤️ Also you have to become your biggest cheerleader, drilling it into your brain everyday and read beautiful inspiring material like this❤️

  • Mary December 15, 2015, 11:00 pm

    I am on the precipice after realizing that leaps of faith and following your intuition or inner wisdom are closely related. I don’t think I could take a leap of faith that didn’t involve a sense of deep knowing that things have to change. I left an unsatisfying, confusing marriage after 27 years, and struck out alone, feeling guilty and lousy about being silent for so long. After 5 years I am finding my voice, and appreciating my feminine powers, which I repressed or suppressed for so long. I’m learning to value myself as a woman, rather than only as a musician or teacher. With the recent passing of my own mother, I realize how much she gave me that I didn’t appreciate. I want now to honor her heritage, rather than only honoring my father’s influence (musician, teacher, bread-winner). The leap I am taking now is to become a homemaker: to create a home in a new location, closer to relatives and friends. A home that will be beautiful. decorated with intention, reflecting my emerging values. A home that will embrace many parties of delicious food, music-making and hilarity. A home that will include a brilliant, loving man. And more wonderful things than I can imagine. And if it weren’t for you, MamaGena, and several other wonderful women who have shared their voices, I wouldn’t have the courage to do this. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  • Susanne December 15, 2015, 10:48 pm

    I took a big leap of faith earlier this year. I left my husband of 22 years. I had been wanting a change for years and I finally did it. I moved to the beach which I had always wanted to do and met a guy( younger than me) and I am having a great time with great sex ( which I didn’t have in years)! I still have some leaps to take with decisions about a career but I am confident that everything will work out as it should be….

    • Rose Tenaglia Dunn December 16, 2015, 12:12 am

      Congrats on making the leap. I have been on a similar journey for the past five years, having left my husband of 26 years. Met a great man, lots of sex and feeling beautiful for the first time in I can’t remember how long!! Stay the course, when fears arise, surrounding career, etc ( as they are want to do…they are telling you to STRETCH!!)
      Keep going, girl!! You got this!!

  • Teresa December 15, 2015, 10:45 pm

    My latest leap was in declaring to the world that I wasn’t celebrating Christmas, Chanukkah, or anything else this year. I was going straight to blessing my family with my time and attention, with gifts purchased solely because I thought they would like them, with no expectation of any hoopla or tradition whatsoever, and with no made up responsibility to some higher power who has better things to do than worry about whether I’m celebrating “correctly” or “enough.” I have a terrifying sense of rightness and freedom at the moment, and I’m seriously looking at other life choices to make sure I’m really choosing and not just being carried along by the flow.

  • Suzi Banks Baum December 15, 2015, 10:39 pm

    Oh…what amazing timing you have MG! I am edgy and nervous and boldly going forward because the cliff from which I will leap is getting closer and closer. I have been practicing since my first Mastery to inhabit the value of my work in the world and this Monday, the website I began after two years of Mastery is about to launch with my name in the URL and an invitation for women to work with me in bigger ways. This is terrifyingly thrilling and some days, like today, I could cover my face and keep on my sweats and stay home. Writing is the way my soul’s desires take shape. My leap is to create a beautiful, well curated space for people to witness my work and commune with me on several new levels. There is lots of wind and beautiful space on this cliff. Thank you for leaping Mama and urging us all to leap too. My cells are so happy! xoS

  • SG Karen Middleton December 15, 2015, 10:25 pm

    Whew, I am mid air in my leap of faith. I quit my soul sucking job last September, have sold everything I own, including my beautiful condo which I said I would never sell. I have boiled my life down to three suitcases and am moving to Ecuador. I’ve never been there, but I am listening to the call of my heart and allowing myself to stop playing it safe and start leaping. I leave Denver after the holidays! And in a not so small gift from the GPS, by way of the grapevine in this amazing community, I have already connected with another SG that lives in the same city in Ecuador! Of course! XO

  • Mary December 15, 2015, 9:59 pm

    18 months ago I decided to plunk down $12k to reserve space, a year and a half ahead, at a fabulous retreat center in Mexico and commit to running my first women’s international sensuality retreat. I was just beginning my more public presence and making very little money, but somehow took the leap of faith, believing that what I would bring these women would change their lives AND mine! And believing that they would come! Last month 10 amazing women DID come — and we are all changed forever!!

  • SG Michelle December 15, 2015, 9:48 pm

    Thank you. I’ve been standing at the precipice for longer than I care to admit. The view is quite lovely but fear have held me back from leaping and feeling the wind rushing past me. Thank you for permission to not be graceful. There’s such pressure for a woman to be polished, especially in business. I want to approach 2016 with curiosity about myself and my ability to serve the diabetic community. It took years of experience and exposure to be the dancer I am today. I don’t know why I thought it would be any different in the rest of my life.

    To filling 2016 with experiences!

  • SG Delicious December 15, 2015, 9:35 pm

    Dear Mama Gena, a big leap of faith when this really fantastic guy many years younger, sat next to me on the couch and asked to kiss me (I had been without any lover for 6 years). We had a short romance and became friends, sort of. A few months later I told him I could see us creating a beautiful relationship (couldn’t have done this without your books!). Here we are 4 years together now and I took another huge leap. Never thinking of myself as possible home owner I said yes to a house, in a different country, where I was visiting for the first time. Now the leap is, to trust we can remodel the house and move there. I would love the energy of a new leap, for way more fun, way more Trust, way more connection with other people, way more sensuality…

  • Cri December 15, 2015, 9:31 pm

    I used to be a big leaper in many ways. But getting self-employed is something else (my ego tells me so!) I rather prefer to be poor than to leap. It’s eating me and makes me sad. Even if I wanted right now I have too few money to get a professional coaching to support me… this really sucks.

    • Lavada December 16, 2015, 2:12 am

      There are government programs like SCORE (Service Core of Retired Executives) part of the Small Business Administration who’s entire mission is to help entrepreneurs and small business professional and IT IS FREE!!! I have great mentors who are helping me build my business, access funding, and so much more! Reach out, you’d be surprised what’s there.

  • Karin December 15, 2015, 9:21 pm

    Where in your life are you on the precipice of a leap of faith? Work
    How would you leap, if you had the courage and confidence that everything would work out?
    I would go to Tony Robbins, tell him its not enough to feed America, you have to house them too and give some suggestions how to do it.
    When have you taken a leap of faith before, and how did it go?
    I have been a headless leaper- bought a property, made some bad choices- hopped across the ocean to marry, now stuck in a difficult marriage

    “The true nature of a woman does not ignite until she has made her desires her north star, and has started off with teeny awkward leaps, in the direction of her dreams.”
    I love this! I divorced my emotionally abusive husband this year, and just recently left my dogmatic religion, which my family is completely wrecked about. I am living my life for me, now. Not to make others happy. Some huge leaps at first, and now I feel like I’m in the teeny awkward leap stage where I am just barely starting to explore this big, amazing world.

    1) Went back to school after the death of my husband, wanted to fulfill a childhood dream, did ! changed my life.

    I have been a ‘leaper’ for years. Know that my life is an unfolding adventure all the time. It does take courage, yet even though some leaps were not as great as I thought that they’d be, I have learned incredible lessons.

    Leaps of faith truly are game changers. Each time I have done that my life and my self have expanded beyond what I had imagined possible.
