Are You Out On The (L)Edge?
Sometimes when you’re out on the edge it can feel like you’re actually out on a ledge. There is a difference…
On The Edge
Life at the Edge is one of power and control. You may still feel the terror of uncertainty, but when you are on the Edge you are self-determinate.
This is where the “leapsters” (those who make taking a leap of faith a habit) hang out. The energy and enthusiasm are high out on the Edge.
On The Ledge
Someone who is out on the Ledge, is “back against a wall.”
They see no other way out. Life has pushed them to the edge–of breaking–and they tenuously balance on the Ledge to keep from falling into the unknown.
Life on the Edge vs. the Ledge
Life on the Edge is characterized by the forward momentum of the pending leap. Life on the Ledge is characterized by a paralyzing fear of the unknown.
Life on the Edge calls us to embrace uncertainty and leap into the unknown. Life on the Ledge causes us to resist uncertainty and grip what is behind in order not to fall away from what is familiar.
The cool thing is that if you’re on the Ledge, you can choose to move onto the Edge at any moment.
If you’re on the Edge already, what are you waiting for? Jump!
