Friday Fictioneers – Take the Leap

Friday fictioneers is here.  I’m a tad late today but all for good reason.  Friendship, sushi and wine!

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, our Hostess with the Mostest, has challenged us to write a 100-word story with beginning, middle and end and it must stand alone.  So here I am, faced with a fabulous photo by Sandra Crook.  Do you feel like trying it out?  It’s a lot of fun – and challenging too!

Take the Leap

She was a strong woman.

It sometimes seemed like nothing was too insurmountable for her.

Resilient became the adjective du jour to describe her.

She just took things in stride, moving one foot in front of the other, regardless of what obstacles were presented.

Through it all, she never totally believed in herself, believing she was incapable.  She allowed others to take the reins and lead her where they would.

It would be so easy to choose this same modus vivendi.  She wouldn’t have to stress about a thing.

Not this time.

She was finally ready to take her leap.

  1. Dear Dale,

    Friendship, sushi and wine are all excellent reasons for being late. 😉 Three of my favorite things.

    Not sure who she is but I have an idea. From the upbeat tone of this, I’m guessing she isn’t leaping off the cliff. Good one.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  2. Well, you led us to the cliff, didn’t you – and then, you asked us to believe that it was a leap into a part of herself that she had not trusted before – ok. But golly gee, leapin’ lizards, Annie. There’s a whole lot of leaping goin’ on.

  3. The most life changing leaps are leaps of faith. Sometimes you don’t have all the answers. Nor a safety net or a back up plan. That’s when the leaps are the scariest and the most rewarding. Jump baby!

  4. Dale, sometimes I think it would be nice to be taken care. I used to envy those kids going to day camp at the YWCA and wished they had one for us adults. 🙂 But I don’t think it would work for me. I would probably rebel or turn into mush. I’m thinking you are going to have some grand adventures. Enjoy the leap.
