Falling. Leaping. To descend.

Falling. Leaping. To descend.
The giving over of control.
The finding of great reward in risks.

I’ve been falling a lot lately. Both figuratively and literally.

In and out of water. In and out of my head.

I think to truly live you have to be willing to fall.
And to leap.
With the real testament being how you get up. 
And how you land.

The daily work is to fall in love with yourself.
Without that you can’t give your heart to someone else.

I fell in the ocean last night. On accident.
I fell because I didn’t commit, because I hesitated. 
 But it was peaceful and I didn’t panic.
I just felt grace, giggles and goodness.

After I had gone under, I thought, well, shit. That’s funny.
And I opened my eyes and the light was there.

I knew where to go.

So I reached for it.

And friends were there to catch me. 
And I caught myself.

Feeling alive is good.
Nothing like a dramatic entrance or exit.

Splash.

Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
