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.
