I'm going to tell you something.

Okay imagine this.

So you're standing on that bridge

You are looking out across the city

You feel the wind through your hair

You're looking down at the water


Are you still with me?

Fuck, where was I

Oh yeah


Then comes that moment that you're standing on the ledge, you know?

And then that adrenaline comes.

That's the moment you get really scared

because you want to jump, but you're afraid of the consequences.

I mean, what if you break something?

But what you need is that one moment of thoughtlessness,

an empty mind and no awareness.

And that you then...

almost without any realization

just go for it.

And then you're in the sky, and then your awareness comes back dude,

and that's so fucked up, because then you get scared again.

But you also know that you have to go for it, because if you doubt yourself now,

then you will land badly, break something, and then everything will be for nothing.

So you take the perfect position, and then you land, and then you are underwater and realize that you succeeded.

That feeling...

Pure freedom.


Do you understand now?


Do you get it now?



The reason that I am telling you this story...

Life is just like a high bridge that you have to jump off of...

Even though you're afraid...

But at the end, that split second that you don't think and just do it...

Then you're making the right decisions.

But you have to jump...

You have to jump...

Otherwise you will regret it...

I relate to this story about taking a big jump.

I had come to a fork in the road regarding my military career. Many factors went into my decision to get out and not re-enlist. But....it was scary. Mr Giggles was a little scared, I was scared...but he supported my decision. I had not more than a few people try to talk me into re-enlisting. But I took that giant leap and refused to sign the re-enlistment papers.

I got another job right away and then the base closed. We moved to Arkansas, I got a job that I had the education and training for. It all worked out.

Thanks for sharing TG. Seems like your decision was the correct one.

It was. There are times I look back and do the "what if". Mr G says I could have been a Chief...I dunno. I think if I had stayed in it would have broken up the family because I would have been deployed all the time.

I bet there are some other folks here that have that turning point in their life.
