celebrating the leap

I don't really think of myself as a "leap-er" - I'm more of a "look before you leap-er" (who sometimes spends so long looking that the time for leaping is long-gone...).

Lately, though, as leap-day approaches, I've been thinking about what leaping means to me - trying something new, stretching to or even beyond perceived limits, being brave, and also having fun (I especially remember leaping all over the lounge dancing to 80's music with my sisters  - in the 80's!).

I've been thinking about people I know and respect and love who've been making their own leaps in their own way - many wonderful blog friends included.

And I'm thinking I will try to be a bit more of a "leap-er" too.

Happy Leap-day's eve! xo

A truly wonderful and very you post Catherine.
i love your outlook on life. ( I hadn't even thought much about leap year at all)
And you know, i have never thought of you as a non leaper, i think you are brave and strong and I can already think of at least one thing you've done recently that's been a leap.
Because of you i'm going to think more about leaping too.
and if you need someone to leap around the lounge dancing 80s style i'm totally up for that too.
