Leap of faith
Hands up if you hate heights? I do. I always have. Which is why it still amazes me to this day when I look back on the time I agreed to do a bungee jump. There I was, with my boyfriend of the time, on a dream back-packing trip to Australia. By the time we reached Queensland, my boyfriend decided a bungee jump was most definitely called for.
So it was with huge surprise that I found myself perched on the edge of a 75 metre ledge, over water, counting down from 3 to 1 and ready to dive “superwoman” style into the abyss.
Of course I did it. I’d jumped before the guy even got to 2. Spurred on by youth, pride (and a few beers), I took one of the biggest leaps of faith I had ever taken to that date.
Paralysis of the unknown
There is only one thing on the other side of fear, and that’s growth. Next time you have the choice, push through the fear, acknowledging it for what it is and what it gives you, which is the courage to carry yourself to the other side where immense growth awaits you.
