"Leap and the net will appear"
-John Burroughs
I've never considered myself to be much of a risk taker but sometimes you just have to follow your gut. This quote from John Burroughs seems to be my personal mantra lately as I mull over some pretty big professional changes. It certainly seems like a long way down when you're about to jump though doesn't it?
P.S I'd love to hear about some your own "leaps" because I'm definitely in need of a shot of courage!


  1. I'd love to hear what changes you are thinking about!

    Well, one of my big leaps was leaving DC for NYC... and new career path. I loved the risk, and it definitely paid off. I grew a great deal and loved starting over.

    Even though life brought me back to DC, I'm excited for what my next leap will be.

    Sometimes you have to take a risk to be great.

  2. Good luck to you on your "leap!" I say the leap is worth it. I took a big leap after college when I moved to FL where I didn't know a soul, took an internship over a full-time job and luckily enough ended that summer with a position created for me. I'm glad I took a chance!

  3. Totally off topic, but I spotted a trio of the Lucite Chivari chairs @ Miss Pixies on 14th last Friday...$125 a pop with a cushion. Perhaps they were your Brimfield find?

  4. Thinking about you, lady, during your big 'leap'!!! I know it's scary but exciting at the same time!!

    Hugs! xx

  5. Love the Audrey picture! My biggest leaps were moving across the country after undergrad (without friends and my bf) to live with women I hadn't met doing a job I LOVED. The other was starting graduate school. Both totally worth it! :)

  6. If you make the leap, you won't be faced w/ a "what if" later.


Thanks for stopping by, I love reading your comments!
