Daring to fall

Daring to Fall

There is a part of you that needs to come out once in a while,

the part that is free of expectations,
that opens you to new ways of being
and new realms of your heart,
that is unusual and daring
and not necessarily acceptable to anyone else.

You need to find a place in your life
where you can challenge the way you have always done things,
where you can risk falling down,
allow yourself to be embarrassed,
strip off your shell and be vulnerable.

And yet, you need to do this in an environment
that is safe enough that your apparent failure is not ridiculed
and you are not discouraged from further experimentation…..

For it is true that you discover
what is enough by experimenting with too much,
that you discover what is acceptable
by daring to go beyond the boundaries.

And you often find the true spark of creativity,
the little thing that is uniquely you,
your special mark upon the world,
by daring to be truly different.

Find a place that is nurturing enough
to let you fail,
that is safe enough to let you experiment,
that is creative and exciting enough
to challenge you to take that extra step,

to spin that additional rotation,
to splatter that red paint with abandon,
and to use those words in new and daring ways.

Find people who will applaud your daring,
gently lift you when you fall
and encourage you to get up and try again.

This is your life
and it should be fun and daring,
a thrilling ride and full of surprises.
So take a deep breath, step out and live.
