I’ve been living under a few rocks lately so have only just come across the historic stratosphere jump by Felix Baumgartner.
I watched this video with a lump in my throat. As he stood on the precipice of history, surveying our world below, the random thought came to me:
His jump was like childbirth.
The fact is, once he got a up there, he was going to have to jump. What other choice did he have?
It reminds me of how scared I was of childbirth before I was even close to getting pregnant. Once I become pregnant however, I had to get that baby out somehow! What other choice did I have but to push that fear aside?
I guess that’s a metaphor for life. We can stand on the precipice postponing the adventure or leap ahead and live, really live.
“The scariest moment is always just before you start. – Steven King”
Were you moved by his historic jump? If you’re a mother, did childbirth scare you as much as it used to me? Or are you a fearless daredevil on all accounts?
