five-minute friday: jump

This is a sweet duo I discovered through my Elizabeth Mitchell Pandora, which is now titled "Josey's Jams".  I love my Pandora stations!  It's so nice to "like" a song and hear it intermittently, discover new artists, and not have to choose music.  Just started a new station, Bon Iver + St. Vincent.  I know my mood will take it somewhere else over the next while of listening, liking, scrolling ahead.

Well, my friends.  It is time.  Time for me to Jump.  I want mo MO MORE.

"Then Jump.  For my love."

Actually.... I'm going to dive.  It's going to feel crisp and clean and easy because I'm a flipping fish.

It's what I was born to do.  Music can fill me up.

Yeah yeah yeah jump!

I'm the girl who stands on the rock of a half-hour, stalling. Counting, stepping back, talking about jumping.  Once I take the plunge, I'll go over and over again.  Go Emily!

I'm on the rock in my teaching. I have so many ideas & so much knowledge, but I keep stalling.  I get distracted by this or that instead of just doing it.  Be that choir teacher, be that role model, the one who makes anything possible.  The one you want to be!  This week, you are jumping and not looking back.  No excuses.

Just do it.  John Combs gave me some great words today about excellence.

Why would you live your life any other way?  If you're changing a tire, you better get those lug notes on their good.

Might as well jump.

Everything with excellence.

No excuses.  

We are 
what we repeatedly 

Take a leap.  

For Five-Minute Friday.  


  1. Thanks for your honesty! I think we all feel that. The distraction from all of our great ideas, the potential that doesn't always bloom. Go sprout! :)
