You know that feeling right before you jump off something really high up? The moment of truth in the battle between the part of you that wants to stay safe + the part of you that wants to leap?
Tonight, The Get Down goes weekly for the first time ever.
And as excited as I am, I'm also nervous as f'ck.
It doesn’t matter that we have the most amazeballs community I’ve ever seen, crazy dedicated dance floor maniacs, juicy incredible sound systems, gorgeous venues, high vibes, strong tribe, and an undying commitment to the rhythm.
It’s a new thing.
We're jumping into new territory, and I don't know where we'll land.
When I woke up this morning with that pre-cliff jumping feeling in my chest, I was reminded of my favorite quote in the history of the universe from Terence McKenna -
Nature loves courage. You make the commitment, and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it's a feather bed.
When we run into one of these moments of truth, we get to decide:
Do I cling to the ground I know?
Or do I trust life enough to leap?
Tonight we take it to church.
