One of my favourite movie scenes is from "City of Angels." Seth (Nicolas Cage) is an angel that falls in love with Dr. Maggie Rice (Meg Ryan). Maggie is a mortal surgeon that believes in tangibles and has a hard time believing she is falling in love with an angel. Since Seth is an angel he cannot feel anything, cold, hunger, and being sleepy are mortal qualities. Seth is willing to give up being an angel for just one kiss from Maggie.

Seth is explaining how he feels about Maggie to Cassiel (Andre Braugher) a fellow angel and asking his advice on how to become mortal. Seth and Cassiel have heard of someone just doing it, just jumping. If you have never seen it, I recommend it to anyone that is thinking about doing something different or "jumping."

Most people settle for jobs they don't love and have distance thoughts about "jumping" into something they love. It worked for Seth and Maggie, and it can work for you. Seth never once regretted his choice to give up his former life.

Jumping is your choice! You have the power of choice. How long have you wanted to jump? Have you ever jumped before? How did it turn out? Things always have a way of working out so put together your "jumping" plan and just do it!
