A CREATIVE WRITING PIECE BY CAROLENE MÉLI
Have you ever just wanted to take a leap?
You know the kind that I am talking about. The one that makes you nervous, makes your heart flutter, makes you look around anxiously wondering if anyone else can hear your thoughts.
Have you ever just wanted to make a change?
You know the kind that I am talking about. The one that’s been on your vision board for years. The one that encourages you to daydream. The one that seems too hard, too expensive, too crazy to bring to fruition.
Have you ever had the feeling of loneliness, like no one got what you were trying to create?
You know the kind that I am talking about. That feeling of second-guessing yourself at every move. Succumbing to those strange, confused looks from those around you. Not believing in yourself just because it’s easier not to.
Have you ever had an idea?
You know the kind that I am talking about. The one that keeps you awake at night, makes you nervous, makes your heart flutter, makes you look around
anxiously wondering if anyone can hear your thoughts.
Well, guess what?
So have I.
So have we all.
The question is, what are you going to do about it?
Leaps are there for the taking my friend. The difference is that the onus is 100% on you.
We are the leapers of the world. Don’t you get it now? The world needs us and we need it.
We have all its beauty and intrigue to thank for our adventurous souls. And if you think that your soul is not adventurous, I call your bluff and say, impossible!
Maybe it’s just time to reintroduce yourselves to each other. Like two long-lost lovers destined to meet again.
We are the leapers of the world, remember? It’s time. And if you don’t know where to start, well… I happen to know a bunch of incredible, outrageously adventurous, entrepreneurial women who would love to meet you.
