Cliff Jumping

How many times have you seen a scene in a film where the main character is being chased toward a cliff of some kind and he or she is left with the option of certain death by facing the enemy, or taking a leap that looks just as hopeless? Plenty, right? And every time you see it, you yell at the screen, "Jump! Jump!"

We all have moments like these in our lives. They're just not as easy to see. However, we choose to give up instead of taking the leap when chances are slim to none. If we jump at least there's a chance, right? No matter how small the chance of surviving appears to the film character, he or she always jumps! And we watch, cheering all the while. Yet, how many times do we choose to do nothing, instead of taking the leap? We may be breathing, but when we quit, we quit living.

Keep a look out for opportunities to leap. Cheer your friends to jump as well, when you see them peering over the edge of the cliff. "Jump! Jump!"
