You might remember the first kiss with the person you liked but you were so afraid to ask her for a date. Your heart was pounding hard, your hands were getting wet and you were kind of shaking with emotions. With a slower voice, the words were almost losing their sounds, you asked her if she wants to dance with you. She smiled and she came to you so light like she was flying. You hold her hand and pull her closer and looked straight in her eyes. The lights from the room and her radiant face were so perfect and you were just amazed at how beautiful she was. You held her middle a little loose to not make any wrong moves, and dance with her like it was the wedding dance in front of all. Two songs you already had with her and did not realize that she was looking with her curious eyes at your trembling lips that were asking for some courage. When almost you lost hope, you got closer and you kissed her; the sweetest of all that you would ever remember later on. It took you just a second to move from fear to have the courage to kiss her tender lips with passion.
Later on, you probably discovered adrenaline. Adventure parks are fun and scary, with complicated technologies that turn and swirls giant boats, and trains that stand upside down without chains, and you were just wondering how gravitation does it work? You were decided to try one time, the scariest of all, the dragon train. You stood petrified and looked at how others did, and you were amazed at how that can stand and didn’t fall. Waited online to get your turn, and changed your mind so many times but you were not a quitter, and you wanted on. You stepped with courage inside the giant beast, pulled down your safety seatbelt around your wrist, and headed up the tracks. The chain started rolling and metal touched the wheels, while going up you started feeling panic, but was too late to give up. The confusion was only up to top, and you felt the wind, and rolling down the tracks, you realized that courage brought more enthusiasm when you just had trust. Was just an engineering toy, but what it brought were freedom and adrenaline. You looked after that in all the things that came to have again the same experience in your life.

Leaving a relationship that didn’t give you the love was promised with the written vows could get you very stressed. The time invested and all the dreams you had are hard to leave behind, and nor to carry up with you for the rest of the time. You needed to have a plan and everything in hand in order to make the move out. Sometimes it takes too long and shortcuts needed to be made. Planing an escape is similar to running out from jail. You know is impossible and always are guards around, and you might have time only during lunchtime to make the moves. You dream at those moments and you delayed the moment until became too hard to take. With hope in your heart and madness in your head, you got the courage to step out and stand up for your freedom. The moment when you got out of that place you felt to run and scream, to jump, and felt that finally, you found the courage to escape.
Your intuition knows before you realize what is the best choice you can take. In a comfortable position and with things that you are familiar you can’t experience new things. Trying something new before you know that you have a passion for, needs courage and a dream. You might think you are too small to change the world, but one day may change your life, one night can get you stronger, and one person can show you what is the best in you. You are a million women in the hands of the right man, and you are the perfect men in the eyes of the right woman. The strength is given by the trust is shown, and loving someone gives you courage. It takes you just a leap of faith to make dreams possible and to find peace. You might think you are too small and not enough, but in someone’s eyes, you might be the one who brought the light and made them better and inspired.
“Courage doesn’t mean you don’t get afraid. Courage means you don’t let the fear to stop you”Unknown
Telling how you feel for the loved one is risking to lose a friend or the connection. The truth is not an easy thing to say and you need a lot of courage to speak your heart. Sometimes words can scary more than a roller coaster or the hights, and is never a real solution of how to say things upright. Is taking risks, and show your feelings the way they are. Is a vulnerable position, and feels naked in front of the spotlights. Speaking your soul is intimacy, and some people think that is about sex. But intimacy is about truth. When you realize you can tell someone your truth, when you show yourself to them when you stand in front of them and their response is “you’re safe with me “, that’s intimacy. The truth leads to trust that leads to the courage to love again.
Would you have the courage to trust me if I ask you to jump with me?
