Cause An Uproar

“As long as I continue to push out into the world,” said Susan Jeffers, “as long as I continue to stretch my capabilities, as long as I continue to take risks in making my dreams come true, I am going to experience fear.”

It seems that lately I have been doing so much stretching of my comfort zone that it is like the elastic of my life is all worn out. I feel like I need a weekend alone to nail down some of the ideas and thoughts that are tumbling through my mind in a free fall. I know that a big change is coming as I can feel the buildup of pressure. Sort of like when you are climbing in elevation and your ears pop and then you realize how much pressure was there. 

I wrote this down the other night for someone, and I think that it captures a lot of what I have been thinking about. I have been making a friend of my fears around money, and it has been showing up in interesting ways. There are so many different keys to this lock that fears has on us – the off road experience is certainly better than the highway of life!


It is a leap of faith to believe in yourself and leap into the branches of magic and possibilities.

It is a leap of faith to trust each of us “sisters” to do our part.

It is a leap of faith to dare to believe that you can manifest this kind of fuel for the journey.

It is a leap of faith to create a path where none exists and go somewhere that you have never been.

It is a leap of faith that allows you to find a destination that no one knew was even there.

It is a leap of faith to face the unknown with creativity, rather than grasping at what you think are the known quantities of how something should be done.

A leap of faith isn’t what achieves a goal, it is what brings the goal out of the unknown and into existence. It births the goal.

While it is happening, the leap of faith doesn’t feel like anything that you ever want to repeat. Surrendering is letting go of control and it is terrifying. Then it’s over and suddenly you can’t stop thinking about how wonderful it was.
