Leap And The Net Will Appear

It has been over twenty years since I encountered The Artist’s Way Program by Julia Cameron. I loved it then and went through it again twice more with friends. The way we were guided towards our creative expression has stayed with me and I credit the experience with igniting my passion for writing.

But probably more than anything the phrase “Leap and the net will appear” has stayed with me in so many areas of my life. Of course, I’m human so there are times when I am annoyingly indecisive or thoughtfully discerning. What I am grateful for is the inspiration to just do it. Take a chance. Be bold.

For several years after taking the initial course I published The Spirited Woman magazine. It was a small, newsletter style publication where I used quotes and personal stories to complement articles by the skilled and amazing women in my life. Every now and then, I go back and browse the old issues reading the material that is as relevant today as it was then. That’s when I am so grateful that I had the courage to take a chance. I knew it was time to produce the magazine and when it was time to retire it.

In retrospect, it was easy to leap. I was so sure in my heart that I was on the right path. All I needed was a nudge and that’s what I got from The Artist’s Way.


  1. Thank you for sharing your inspiring story of taking leaps of faith and trusting your heart’s path. Your words are a reminder that sometimes all we need is a little nudge to take the leap towards our passions and purpose.
