Leap of Faith

There comes a time in our lives when we have to take a leap of faith. We must step out of our comfort zone and venture out into the unknown. I am at the precipice and have been there for some time now. I have not been able to cross over because there was no plan in sight. I have lamented to God for not rolling out the proverbial carpet for me. Increasingly, as the sun rises and sets, day in and day out, my patience for mediocrity continues to erode. I move closer and closer to the edge.

The spirit is calling forth and telling me to take that leap. Such is the nature of faith…the absence of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. There out in front of me is my plan. It is a plan to hold fast to that faith and leap! Wheeeeeeeeeeee

  1. M,
    Go for it!!!! I’ve sensed for sometime now that you are and have been ready to jump. Trust that there will be an angel there to catch you, throw caution to the wind. Months ago, I wrote in my status that “I don’t suffer foolishness, or fools for that matter, lightly.” Sounds like you are at that place. I tried calling you the other day because I wanted to discuss with you a previous note as well as some other things.

    The next time the question is posed: Just say, “I want to do a PhD.” If you don’t, it will nag at you forever. My 2 cents!!!

  2. There is genius, profound brilliance, in that sister’s words:
    the utter simplicity in her words:
    “Next time…just say, ‘I want to do a Ph.D.'”
    borders on divine, my friend, DIVINE.

  3. yes, because it’s true. a fine brother once asked me the question, and i didn’t have an answer or was afraid of the question. it was the first time someone took into consideration what “I” wanted so i didn’t know i could answer the question. but, my answer would have been “marry you and have our babies.” how profound that would have been for me. but, the conditioning had been “not to know or be afraid to think of the possibilities.” i don’t believe that will happen again, with me. trust that you have someone who loves you enough to want you to be happy!!!

  4. okay. i know i don’t know you, regina, but i’m going to ask the question that is burning on more minds than want to confess it:
    so did you marry the fine brother and have babies??

    respectfully,
    M.
