Why Just Leap?

Why Just Leap?

Please note that this post relates to the old version of my blog which was found at justleap.net. For a similar post regarding this current version of the blog, see Why Noah Nomad?

Sometimes people will ask me why the URL for my blog is "justleap." Well it all started off a few years ago when I was creating my old blog/website in preparation for my year abroad in Germany. I knew I wanted a URL that was short, easy to remember, and relevant to the content of my blog.

I happened to be at a local shipping store when I came across the following magnet.

This magnet seemed to encompass what I hoped would become a key aspect of my blog: encouraging others to follow their dreams, even when they seem scary at times, with the knowledge that in the end things will most likely work out, often times just requiring that first step.

So although this doesn't relate to everything posted on this blog, I think it does serve well as the URL, as it certainly remains the foundation for everything I post.

What have you been wanting to do lately, but perhaps have been held back by fear? I encourage you to leap towards that goal. I'm willing to bet it will work out smoother than you might think.

The photo is of the waterfall in Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco. On a recent trip there, my family and I had tea at Samovar Tea Lounge in the park. I had their Moorish Pairing, and would highly recommend a stop there if you are in San Francisco and enjoy tea.
