Coddiwomple: A Word to Learn and Live By

Leap of Faith

The greatest rewards that I have found in my life show up when I’ve dared to take a leap of faith.

What First Step?

What if you don’t even know what your first step should be? It doesn’t matter. Choose a step, any step, and take it and watch how the Universe responds to your courage.

Let Go of Your Need to Control

What I’ve learned is that control is an illusion. We remain in control of ourselves and nothing else.

Lighten Up Francis

Everything doesn’t have to be so serious. I was going to try really hard and not include the obvious traveling metaphor about how “It’s the journey, not the destination.”

Go with Purpose

Confucius said, “Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” This is the most important step of any coddiwompling that you have planned.

To Recap:

  1. Muster up the courage to take a leap of faith! You won’t regret it!
  2. If you aren’t certain what step to take first, choose one. You cannot fail, only learn.
  3. Let go of your need to control and watch endless possibilities appear.
  4. Don’t take everything so seriously. Watch with anticipation, not trepidation, with what the Universe has in store for you.
  5. Wherever you go, go with all of your heart. Passion and perseverance will carry you far.
