Leap of Faith

You know one man alive is homage to the rest…
Make record (an impact) in your journey... 

My Leap of Faith

“Most of us live our whole lives…without any real adventure to call our own. What is any life without the pursuit of a dream?” 

Well 800 miles, halfway across the country, I'm finally all moved and settled in & The Gatsby Life is ready to continue on this beautiful journey we call life and everything in-between. I hope you continue to follow and hopefully be inspired and continue your inspirational journey to inspire others!

Life is all about that journey that we seek and desire in our lives. We want it to be important, to impact, to inspire not only ourselves but those around us. We want it to have meaning/ a purpose, and a sense of hope... for something bigger than ourselves.
“Don’t fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have.” ~ Louise E. Boone 

 How can you make your journey be inspiring, purposeful, important and everything in-between? It easier "said" than "done". There is no clear solution or answer, there is no right and wrong, there isn't only one way to do it, but there is only one way to get started. And that is NOW, don't take time for granted. Many put off for tomorrow, simple little tasks, exercising, cleaning, or larger tasks, such as getting out of your shell, stepping out of your "comfort zone", putting yourself out there, taking risks, trying new things, setting new goals. I'm sure many of you have heard of the saying "Stop putting off for tomorrow what you can do today!" We must remind ourselves of this simple saying and ACT NOW instead of LATER. 


 “Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.” 

Don't put off what you have time for today, because if you do, you are sure to become overwhelmed tomorrow. I understand, you will not be able to do everything today, some things you will have to set aside but take steps to accomplish and rid yourself of the procrastination that clutters your day to day life.

 We got the Light to hold us up...

I just took a "leap of faith" myself.  I'm now living 800 miles away from where I lived the first 24 years of life, out of my comfort zone, new area, new people, new job, new environment, completely new turfgrasses/plants I've never worked with before. I'm not overwhelmed, because I'm ready for whatever life throws at me. But I've realized I can't just sit and expect life to throw what I want at me, I have to go out and pursue what I want in life, not only with a strong desire in my heart, but with an open mind.

“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.” ~ Max Ehrmann 

Things may not seem clear all the time, but that is part of life. It is up to you to achieve what you seek. It will not be handed to you, life is not hand delivered to your door, it must be sought out, it must be dared, challenged, and risks will be overcome. Accept challenges, take risks, and accomplish more than you can even imagine. Life is happening all around you, the time is now step out and into it, seek, explore, dream & discover!
