Don’t Just Stand There

Precarious Position!

Ever had an experience, a time in your life where things were well, pretty precarious and you weren’t sure what to do next?

Many of us have experienced that fear of the unknown, that hesitant sensation of OMG what do I do now.

I’ve been there a time or two and this is what I learned about the risk of it all… Don’t just stand there, Move,Β Jump, Go forward! Afterwards sorry or not, you still did something.

You didn’t stand there and wait for something to happen to you. You made the first move.

I’m presenting you with one of my favorite (funny) 3 minute clips of one of the best know movies starring 2 of the best know hunkie dunkies (gorgeous guys) Paul Newman and Robert Redford. Enjoy, laugh and remember when in doubt, Jump!

You should be laughing now. I know I do everytime I watch this. Have a great weekend, and remember when in doubt, Jump! Penny

  1. Oh, how I loved that movie! When I think back to some of those times you have mentioned, some of my jumps were with a little help from friends, so I guess they were more like a push instead of a jump (lol). It is good to have friends in your corner that will give you that little nudge you need at times. Oh, I think I just described you, my friend! Blessings for a beautiful week Penny. πŸ™‚

  2. Ok Penny – will heed this advice – actually working so hard on it ~ but big stakes for my next move! Great post dearest friend ~ am going to watch the hunks now πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ xo

  3. LOL – I can’t swim either!!!
    This reminds when we took a flight from PR to St. Lucia many moons ago & we were in a propeller plane over the ocean. I was like OMG what if this plane goes down? I can’t swim!
    Hubby looks at me & says – We’d all be dead if this plane went down.
    Hmmmm…I guess so.

  4. If you don’t make that jump you will never know. That clip says it all in everybody’s lives. Yes, you might squish at the bottom, and you won’t know if you can swim until you hit the water, but how will you know if you don’t try?

    I made the jump a couple of weeks ago and it was the best move I made. Turns out I can swim after all, and I didn’t squish at the bottom. Squishing is bad.

    I love that clip. Maybe I’ll get round to watching the film as well at some point … add it onto my to do list LOL

    • The movie is worth seeing, you will laugh all the way through. And both those fellows are brilliant actors, but I think they spend half the movie trying not to laugh themselves. πŸ™‚

      • I think I shall add it to my list … will probably order it off of Amazon πŸ™‚

        They certainly looked like they were enjoying themselves. They also looked like they were ad-libbing as well πŸ™‚

        That precarious rock is … rather precarious. Wouldn’t like to walk near that on a windy day πŸ˜‰

        Hugs and big smiles to you and your family πŸ™‚

  5. One of AnElephant’s favourite movies, great scene.
    And great advice.
    Apparently Elephants can not jump.
    But this one has very recently done just that!
    Maybe he’ll share the story sometime.
    Thanks, Penny.

  6. In a way I think we are always standing in a precarious way, just like that rock! Sometimes it’s more “visible” than others. Being alert and -as you say- making a move is wise and healthy!

  7. What a clever writer you are I would never have put this together too logical I guess. But a wonderful post and Movie ..now those two were “hotties” back in their day as well. LOL
    have a beautiful Blessed Blogging weekend go out and have some fun! god Bless!

    • Thanks Len, I do think out of the box. Someone asked me recently if I spoke any foreign languages, I answered, “Are you kidding, I am a foreign language”. Nodoby can quite figure me out or what I’m going to say next, that is. lol. You too, the bestest weekend ever, Penny πŸ™‚
