I jumped out of a helicopter once and floated down to the ground. It was something I never thought I’d do. And once I got over the fear of crashing to my death from parachute failure, it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I did that. And even though I was terrified at first, I very quickly settled into that situation and ended up enjoying every moment. I even landed perfectly, on both feet, and walked away incredibly exhilarated. I’m not saying you feel exhilarated right now. But I’m saying open your eyes and look around at all the places you could be going on this new journey. You don’t know every outcome right now. And I realize you didn’t jump out willingly into this new life you are living. You were pushed. But guess what? You’ve had a parachute all along. You just didn’t know it because there was so much life-stuff on your back. But as you adjust each day, you realize, it’s okay to ride the breeze. Calm down. You really are going to land just fine and you will be so proud of yourself for daring to take a chance on something unknown. It’s your life. Take in the new scenery and be thankful for it. The old scenery was the one taking you toward a crash landing. Thank God that’s not your path anymore. You had your own parachute all along.
