This week’s Peace Perspective is inspired by the lyrics of Coldplay. I really believe that we are guided on a path, we can decide whether or not to follow that plan, but there is a method to the madness of life.
About a year and a half ago I took the leap and moved home. I was worried about it. I was afraid of seeming like a failure, or a loser. Especially because I moved right back in with my family.
But the truth is, if I hadn’t made that leap, there are so many things I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish. I would have never been able to become a Yoga Sculpt instructor. The training required six weeks of 5 hour nights in Eden Prairie. There is no way I could have done that from my job in Duluth.
There’s also a chance I wouldn’t have been able to attend the Healthy Living Summit last year. The friendships and growth that came out of those few days are still shining through even though it has been 4 months since we were there.
Finally, if I didn’t have the community of my small town, things would be a lot harder. Sure there are down sides, but the positives far out weigh them.
Have you ever taken a leap? Did it open up new opportunities?
