My Reflections on Risk

I received a compliment today that I really appreciated.  A friend of mine told me how much they admired my drive and ability to passionately go after the things in life that I want.  

Dress: Express 
Shoes: Payless 

The more I thought about this, the more I realized that I do find myself embracing opportunities rather than hesitantly backing away from them.  Yes, many times I do things on impulse and rarely take significant time to actually analyze a situation before diving in; however, I don't necessarily think it's always a bad thing. If I stopped to think about every opportunity before I took one, I probably wouldn't jump on the chance and end up missing out on a lot of wonderful things in life.

There are many things I still want to achieve in life, but I like to think that I've already gained more than I could ever imagine.

Although I've made many mistakes, taken quite a few falls, and hurt myself along the way, I would never take back a single moment.  All of the bumps in the road is what gave me this thick skin.

 I feel confident in myself, my body, and my heart.  I strive to make a difference in the lives of others.

I take risks in order to get farther.  I put myself out there in order to become known.  I trust that my intuition will lead me to what is right. 

I live my life to the fullest. 

Because I am me and life is good! 

What risks have you taken lately?
