Confession time: my favorite all time TV series is Frasier. Naturally I’m thinking of their Leap Day episode, where Frasier encourages everyone to take a leap and try something new, to disastrous results.
I’m all for an excuse to try something new and spread one’s wings. Not so keen on the whole disastrous results part. But here’s the thing: we don’t know what will work until we try it. We don’t know what we’re capable of until we push ourselves that extra mile.
I could have given up on writing years ago. I could have never picked up my craft after years focusing on other avenues instead. But I did. And this time I began sharing my work with the world. This time I was ready to take the leap and fine tune my writing. This time I didn’t put my writing down again.
If you have a passion you’ve been neglecting, maybe it’s time to take a leap and put your faith in yourself. If you don’t, you’ll never know what might be.
Me? I’m still busy with my last leap. Instead of trying something new, I’m going to continue pushing forward. Whether you have something new or something old to focus on, I hope you will, too.
