That Split Second….

That Split Second, When The Whole World Looks Different…

As anyone in my personal life knows, I’ve see the movie “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” five (yes, 5) times so far. Those who know me best totally get why I can’t get enough of this movie, while others ask, “Why so many times?”
Although the movie, in its entirety, is an incredibly uplifting, heart-felt and inspiring experience, the ‘snapshot’ above…the very moment captured in this still photo is my primary ‘draw’ to this story.
In a very quick nutshell, the movie is a fantastic journey that one man takes, as he transforms is internal and hidden ‘sense of adventure’, and brings it all to life, as his daily experience. The moment captured in this single frame (above) is a pivotal moment in that transformation, from my perspective.
Just prior to this frame, he took a literal leap of faith…a leap doused in fear, and jumped onto an already launching helicopter. In this frame, and for the next several seconds of the film, you can clearly see the look of “HOLY CRAP!!! I DID IT!!!! I ACTUALLY JUST DID THAT!!!!!!”, and his life, his perspective, his words and actions are never the same!
It is this very moment that has me captivated. The moment of shift. The moment of exhilaration, when everything that you thought was extreme, unlikely or ‘outside of your reach’ is all the sudden firmly in your grasp.
When you take that leap into the space that is just past what you think you can do…the world suddenly opens up, and things you never imagined could happen for you – are within arms reach.
It is only when we are willing to take that leap into the unknown or uncertain, that we are able to truly see the vast expanse of possibilities that are available to us.
If you have a goal, an intention, an idea or a dream that you are not acting on, nor moving toward, you truly have no idea how magical your life can be. Its like living your whole life, believing that ice cream comes in just one flavor. You cannot even IMAGINE what you’re missing!
So, this is the draw that The Secret Life of Walter Mitty has for me, and this is what I invite you to explore in your own life!
Take that step. Make that leap. Chase that dream. Because in the process, things, people, places and opportunities BEYOND YOUR IMAGINATION will open up for you!!
As the movie says, “Life is about courage, and going into the unknown”…so GO!!
GO!! There’s no more to read here…GO MAKE YOUR LIFE HAPPEN!!! <3

Until Next Time,
Jill
