Jump Ship Now
Being present in the moment helps with discovering how to really live change…
I’ve made changes in the past 2-3 years. But also am holding on to a lot of old patterns, habits of fear that keep me from taking BIG steps in a new direction. In moments I can more clearly feel that I’m still standing on a sinking boat. The water is up to my ankles and getting higher now. But I had become so used to the soggy feeling that I could fix my gaze elsewhere and ignore it.
This morning I was hoping to put words to the felt sensation I most often have in my stomach when I wake up in the morning. It’s a nagging feeling like I left home and left the stove or the iron on or something. Finally the words came. I have to jump ship now. This one I made home and built with scared eyes and a scared heart is going down.
I must jump ship. And I don’t have to be afraid that what I leave behind is anything I need. Look forward and jump.
