That is correct.
No matter how hard you try to figure it out ahead of time,
the only way to know you can do anything is to simply choose it.
I could finish this blog right here.
......Just leave you in the philosophical conversation of your mind
and let you seek the evidence of how true this is for yourself….
What could be more exciting than jumping into something new
and unexplored except in the simple desire of being it?
Well, what does that mean?
Do you remember when you were young and you saw
someone doing something and in the act of just watching them,
sparked every cell in your body and being?
It was like a bubbly, effervescent freshness
budding in the core of your being.
Am I capturing the perception?
All you wanted to do was be THAT.
And you JUMPED…... right into it.
As many of you you may or may not know,
I am a jazz singing blogger. I remember quite vividly
my first awareness of what singing felt like.
I remember knowing I could sing.
All I wanted was to explore it, do it, be it, discover more about it.
And so I did.
I didn’t have the education of it at 8 years old BUT
I had this spark inside that inflamed my adventurous being to know more.
Guess what? I still have that fire in me.
And I still throw myself off of that musical cliff
wherever I’m singing in the world today!
I also had a spark for basketball when I was in Junior Highschool.
I jumped into that too, excuse the pun.
I loved how my body felt while I explored the sport!
On that journey I fell in love with the joy of muscle,
skin and breath in movement.......
Unfortunately, the sport itself wasn’t my forte.
The only way for me to have discovered that was to simply DO IT!
You know what I’m saying?
You have to jump into it and gather all that you require
from it and then choose your next step from there.
So my dear readers, don’t complicate your path.
If something resonates and vibrates with you then jump into it.
Then choose from there what you’d like to do next with it.
I mean if it wasn’t for basketball, I never would have discovered
the thrill of how far my body could express itself….that was the beginning
of the love affair with my physical body temple as the years have passed.
Don’t be afraid.
Just jump and explore the possibilities.
The magical possibilities.
