I think of the times in my life I was truly ready, and in contrast, those times I thought I was NOT ready, but I went for it anyway. Have you ever climbed to the top of a high diving board, looked down and thought: I’m not ready, I’ll never be ready! But somehow you manage to jump anyway? And the best part is, it turned out better than you thought possible.
In sports, there’s a saying for those guys who are waiting on the bench, “always be ready when your number is called.”
Because, of course, we never know precisely when it’s our turn to shine.
For friends I know who are teetering on their personal high board, debating if they
to jump into something new
… and for those who are as ready as they can be,
just waiting for an opportunity to prove it …
… those with a fresh diploma, embarking into a new world full of dreams …
and especially those not sure they would love again.
This globe’s for you. READY when you are.
