Stop living in fear and take that leap! A column by Crystal Ybarra

Crystal Ybarra

I’d like to take a moment to introduce you to me. I am a woman who has just taken a leap…. Again. Yes, I have found myself taking more than one leaps of faith, and pretty darn big ones, too.

A leap of faith is something you just do. When you’ve prayed about it, thought about it, sang about it and even boohooed about it.. it’s time to do it. A leap of faith is something you take when the waiting is weighing, and when you are just fed up. You’ve got to let go and trust. It’s not an easy thing to do, but are you trusting your safety net. I want to encourage you that there is a safety net there, the outcome may not be what you thought it would be, but there will be an outcome and it will be the right one.

Ok, so I’m not saying do something completely outrageous, or dangerous… but what I am saying is jump! You’ve prayed about it , thought about it.. all of the above.

Oh, wait, I just did.. I jumped quite a bit lately, #1– I’m here aren’t I?? I am writing to you! #2– has happened , #3– is done… and so on.

It’s time for me, and for you to stop living in fear, stop putting things off, I’m asking you to be daring, do the thing you want to do. What leaps are you putting off today? Which did you say you were gonna do yesterday. Time is flying friends and it stops for no one.

Can I encourage you? My name is Crystal and I am thrilled to take you through life through my journey and blessed to be right here, right now. My name is Crystal and I am taking a leap.  Join me next time.

Be blessed, Be a Blessing and know you are both.

Yours Truly,
