That One Moment

It’s that one moment in time when it all hangs in the balance. It literally could go either way and the next split second will determine the outcome.

Will gravity have its way? That ground is so very near, just an eighth of an inch closer and you’ll not be able to pull away from it. You can almost feel the impact.

But you could equally well regain your equilibrium. It’s not too late to claim control – not if you act immediately with a shift in your weight.

You’ve got to believe it, that the chance is still there to maintain that balance, to go the distance without that crash-and-burn. That split second of time will tell the tale.
