Friday Five ~ Leap Day Edition

RevGals willsmama and Songbird write, "It's Leap Day!! Whether you're one of the special few who have a birthday only once every four years, or simply confused by the extra day on the calendar, everyone is welcome to join in and play our Leap Year Friday Five."

Tell us about a time you:

1. Leapt before looked

I don't tend to be a 'leaper.' I usually weigh the pros and cons quite carefully before I do anything. I'm not very spontaneous! I probably should work on that.....

2. Leapt to a conclusion

I tend to take things too personally and think that if someone is acting irritated or upset, it must somehow be my fault. Sometimes that is the case! But most of the time it has nothing to do with me and I waste precious time worrying about what I might've done.

3. Took a Leap of Faith

Every time I get in the car. I have a terrible sense of direction.

4. Took a literal Leap

A few months ago our Youth Group did a ropes course. For the last event I was strapped to a bunch to ropes, hauled up to the ceiling and released. I flew across the auditorium! I thought it would be scary, but it was exhilarating. And I think I impressed some of the kids by actually doing it. (They know I'm kind of a chicken!)

5. And finally, what might you be faced with leaping in the coming year?

My birthday is coming up and I am thinking about challenging myself in a different way for my 34th year. I don't want to give any details yet, but I will post more about it on my birthday.

It's a great feeling to do more than we think we can at a physical challenge!
