Dear Self,

The thing about leaping is that you can’t know if you make it or not.

That’s why the stakes are so high.

It’s real.

I’m staring at something that I really care about and I really want to make happen…but if it doesn't work I have a lot to lose and I’m scared that if I lose all that stuff no one will be at the bottom to catch me.

Which is really me saying people only like me for my stuff.

I don’t think that’s true…but how do I know?

Maybe I only like me for my stuff?

Or at least find it easier to see myself as valuable when I have that stuff to offer.

Leaping into everything that matters to you sounds simple and idealistic and like everyone should do it…until it’s you standing on the edge of the cliff asking yourself…

“Do I make it?”
