"Don't be afraid to take a big step if one is indicated. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps." David Lloyd George.
This is a nice image that I've long loved. You can't cross a broad chasm in two small jumps. Sometimes, you have to take a huge step, and sometimes a giant leap.
If you're normally a small stepper, that can be hard. But some things can't be accomplished any other way.
There are some big leaps in life that don't make sense. And there are others that do.
How can we know the difference? Discernment. Wisdom. Intuition. Listening.
What are your values? What do you love? What matters to you?
What do your dreams tell you? What is your heart saying?
If you're led to the edge of something new, and it's something very good, and a leap needs to be made, and your heart is nudging you forward, then leap!
