Taking a Chance : 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups Week #32

Monday evening the new prompt for the 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups was delivered via Twitter by Julia from Julia’s Place.

…take a leap of faith…

For the first time in months I didn’t contribute to last week’s challenge so was determined not to miss this week.   There was the a extra bonus this week because Julia  told us about Feb 29th.net which is set to be the biggest blogging event of the year.   It is a global blogging project across the world for adults and children, posts can only be made on the 29th February – it is only open for one day.  How exciting is that!?

To fulfil your potential, achieve your dreams and goals, you have to take a chance.  Trust in yourself, take a leap of faith,  follow your heart and believe you can make it.

It was one piece of advice, among many, Bridget had read since being told her job was redundant.  She used it as the lifeline she needed to make the biggest decision in her life.

Bridget sat in front of her boss and told him that she didn’t want the replacement job he offered but would take the money and leave.

That was three years ago. 

Bridget now owns a multi-million pound business.   

Please pop over to Julia’s Place and check out some of the varied, and always great, interpretations of this week’s prompt.   Also don’t forget to visit 100wc.net  the website for the 100 Word Challenge for schools.

  1. Good for Bridget. Great story. 😉


  2. Absolutely, good for her! That’s the kind of situation that really sorts the sheep from the goats.
    Nice one!


  3. And good for her! To have the courage to let go of a sure thing is awesome.


  4. I hope she keeps her ex-boss in the know about how she’s doing – she has a lot to thank him for. On second thoughts, maybe it would be kinder not to rub it in if she really wants to thank him.


  5. I like the way this highlights one of those life-changing moments, which I guess is what it really means to take a leap of faith!
