Life Lesson: Sufficiency

Cincinnati Councilman Wendell Young

I met City Council Member Wendell Young at last night’s Cincinnati mayoral debate.

Remembering my blog challenge, I quickly asked if he had a life lesson to share with me.  Smiling and with hesitation in his voice, he replied “Don’t jump out of a perfectly good airplane, if you have a choice?!

I laughed as he explained how parachutes weren’t his favorite part of a stint in the US Air Force.  It’s generally better to stay in the plane.

Lesson: The thrill of a free fall isn’t necessary if you are already happy where you are and where you are going.
