It looks scary. That big chasm between where you are now and where you could be.

Maybe someone comes along for emotional support. The other friend is just along for the ride.

Take the step to the ledge and find a comfortable spot. Take a deep breath. Let the fear and your breath out. Now leap.

Maybe your frown turns into a yell of absolute terror. The initial grimace may turn into a smile and then a laugh.

When the journey is over, you could never want to do it again. You could want to do it a million more times.

Take a deep breath and make the leap. Enjoy the journey.

Today, my kids went tubing. I learned how to paddle board and navigate a kayak with a rudder.

Some of us were scared. But we took the leap and had a blast.

The leap is worth it.
