Taking the Leap Requires…

As we near the last month, getting closer and closer to our goal date of setting off for the adventure of our lives (while still praying and praying that logistics come together in time), I’ve learned that taking the leap requires something unexpected.  That unexpected something has a lot to do with leaving the comfortable, familiar and predictable and stepping into uncharted grounds whether your leap is big or small.

I say unexpected, but I think I knew it all along and just didn’t want to face it.  Maybe you know what I’m referring to.  I’ve come to wonder if this is the single requirement that causes many of us to walk away from the leap, feeling unsure as we step back from the edge.

What am I referring too?  Disney’s Babble team asked me if I had anything to share about “taking the leap”, and I had to smile.  Do I have anything to share on the subject?  Holy smokes.  What is this mystery that taking the leap requires?   Read this special Babble post I wrote this week, My Family’s Dream if Finally Coming True, but I’m Still Grieving for Our Old Life.

Heat up a cup of coffee or tea, find a quiet moment in your day and read along.  You’ll have to tell me if you guessed what that single requirement was.  Or maybe you’ve found that taking the leap requires other things…I would love to hear what those are too.

Go to my Babble post.  (enjoy!)

  1. Can’t wait to follow your adventures!

  2. Woo Hoo! SO EXCITED for you guys and so excited to follow along! Another set of family friends of ours just sold their home and 80% of their possessions and are going to spend the next two years living on a sail boat. I don’t think either of these adventures sound crazy, I think they sound incredible!

    Thank you so much everyone! I’m seriously in SHOCK! Brian and I have been walking around in a frenzied, crazed daze! He’s making lists on the living room windows because his ADD is kicking in with all that has to be done. LOL! I wrote this post yesterday and just remembered I wrote it and came to check on whether it went live!!! Hilarious. But soooooo good. We are so ready to step into the unknown. I LOVE that song “Oceans” that says “Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders, let me walk upon the waters, wherever you may call Me. Take me deeper than my feet could ever follow, and my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior.” I listen to it every day right now and feel the life and inspiration of it sinking it my very soul and preparing my heart to be stretched!

  7. MeRa you are such an inspiration! It has been so wonderful following you for all these years. Nine years in July actually, when you shot our wedding! I remember meeting you at a Bridal Expo at Qwest. Remember? You were sort of just getting your footing, and lucky for me I got the opportunity to meet and work with you! Following you has been a joy. I am thrilled for you and your family! What an amazing adventure. One you will never forget or regret! And how lucky are those kids. Learning to not be bound by fear but motivated and excited to see what the world has to offer. I can’t wait to watch it all unfold!
