Today is the last week day in June, which also means it’s the last June 2012 National Blog Posting Month prompt. I’m proud of myself for sticking to the challenge, even though some of the prompts were a bit difficult. Some of my posts seemed a bit redundant, but with a similar theme, I guess that’s going to happen when there’s uhhh….one theme.
So, the last prompt of the month is: “it’s not the jump you have to worry about, it’s the landing.” How true this is! Do you know how often I haven’t done something because the landing isn’t pleasant? Or possibly, the landing is unknown, so the jump is much scarier.
There are a bunch of things in life in which the landing is unknown. No one knows, exactly, how things will go with a move, a new job, the birth of a child, and so on. That’s where I, personally, have to put my trust in God and hope for the best. Sure, you can make the best of every situation, or try to at least, and that will help immensely. If you see that something is failing and probably won’t have a good ending if you continue the way you’re going, then you obviously need to try to change the situation.
In the past few years, I’ve learned that things don’t always end well, and there’s not always a soft place to fall. But a scary landing shouldn’t prevent us from jumping in the first place! That’s something I need to learn….even if the situation isn’t ideal, sometimes it’s okay to just “jump in” and hope for the best, even if you don’t know the exact details of the “fall!”
