JUMP!

Figuratively and metaphorically– should we not all to JUMP each and every day? Take risks, challenge ourselves, create new possibilities, open doors, maybe close doors if that is better for our health and mind, and move our bodies? I see our children  JUMPING each day. Let’s follow their lead, shall we?
