You realize that the point of maximum danger is the point of minimum fear. – Will Smith
It’s not everyday that celebrities go skydiving. And it’s not everyday that they speak on any profound meaning they found in it.
But, Will Smith is different. The well-known actor seems to be doing everything these days, but it’s in the risks he’s taking that he’s learning these important lessons about life. As humans, we constantly fear. Especially in today’s society, we’re wired to fear. We fear what others think, we fear what will happen at work tomorrow, and we fear years and years into the future. Then, what happens?
We forget to live in the present, because we are so worried about the future. But what happens when we let go and take the time to appreciate the things that surround us? What happens when we let ourselves free, and allow ourselves to actually FEEL?
Sometimes, you need to let go of fear. Allow yourself to take risks and let go, because there may be a moment of true beauty that you’re missing. Embrace the unknown and all that it can teach you. You don’t need to jump out of an airplane. Or, maybe you do. But, the most important thing is to do something that scares you. Let go and feel the present moment – live in Tday.
Besides, you may never know what’s on the other side.
