Leaping into Less



It's been ages since I've played at Jamie Ridler's studio, so I popped over this morning and her question What Leap Do you Wish to Take? gave me pause.

What LEAP do I wish to take?   Jamie, I'm already leaping tall buildings in a single bound and stopping the occasion speeding bullet in order to accomplish my goals.  In fact if I keep leaping at this pace, I'm likely to spring myself right into burnout.  I've done it before.

Leaping it kinda my thang. 
My Meltdown SoulCollage Card

The question begs to be asked:  What constitutes a "leap" anyway?  Isn't a leap an action performed without knowledge of the consequences?  An act of faith?   In that case, I'm not leaping at all because I know my hard work and actions will result in success.  The leap for me then is slowing down.   

Woah...my palms just got sweaty.  I must have hit a nerve.

So the leap I wish to take now is letting go, slowing down and doing less...while keeping the faith that it will all work out.

Now that's a leap worth taking.

Slow is not necessarily boring or uneventful. It is just different and shows you are growing big time!

Hi sister girl....am so here with you....but I seem to run more than leap! I am looking forward to this summer...calming down and just sitting a bit everyday..even if my mind want so leap..I will be just vegging in the sun (with sunscreen) and breathing..just a bit. May you find some time to breathe and smile and not leap..for a bit!
Hugs to you hon, Sarah

As Liz wishes for herself, I wish for her as well. Slowing down is often just as much of a leap as moving forward. Enjoy the special moments that by slowing down you will be able to see.

I can see how that might be a hard leap to take. But sometimes less is more. You'll have to keep us updated!
