The "diving board moment"

Falling in love takes many different angles. It could be with your spouse, your child, your siblings, your parents, or your closest of friends. I have come to understand [for myself, at least], that it always involves one core shift: being open to the extraordinary difference that will take place when you chose to embrace change over control.

It's terrifying, but it's the root of trust. I used to call it a "diving board moment": the space when you think to yourself, "Let's do this thing!" and make that leap. It may be a big decision or a small decision, but it is that moment of looking into your partner's eyes and nodding in agreement. No guarantee what is waiting on the other side except the guarantee that you'll each be there for the other through and through.
