Time for Another I Wonder !
Lately I've been thinking and wondering about Leaps of Faith. Don't you just love that phrase? Such thoughts and images come to my mind. But there is a group of images that is unsurpassed ~~~~
(all images courtesy Google)I'll never forget the first time I watched Indiana Jones take that "Leap of Faith." I held my breath, and then when I saw the "bridge" he walked across, my stomach got weak and I almost passed out because of my fear of heights! And no matter how many times I watch that scene, it effects me the same way -- -- emotionally and physically. My heart palpitates, I don't breath, my stomach does flips, and then BOOM...Indy accomplished the impossible. He believed. He HAD TO believe....and I cheer, usually out loud!
Anyone trying to achieve something of importance in their life has opportunities to take that "leap of faith," but how many of us actually do it?? Looking back, I know I've made a few of them, but they were more like "small steps." (Every step in the right direction counts, though, right?)
I'm writing my memoir. Do I have faith in myself as a writer? Yes, I do. But something is holding me back somewhat, making it difficult to make much progress.Obviously if I knew what it was, I'd fix it. Okay...so maybe now it's time for MY "leap of faith," but where? In what direction? Where do I leap?
Please feel free to give me advice and directions, etc!
