Well… I had thought I might not be able to post this week.
I will be honest with you, I have been going through some things recently so I haven’t been quite myself.
Honestly I feel foolish to some degree, I invested everything in one risk in my life and it didn’t go the way that I had hoped. But instead its effects rippled onwards in my life in a very very different way, it inspired my friends to take risks. For that I am infinitely proud of them.
Of course that is not to say that I am not disappointed, because I very much am. I fought for something and someone I believed in, but when it came down to it I was the only one fighting, and it was a loosing battle.
I am confessing this because I don’t want anyone to ever think that a risk isn’t worth taking if the pay off could give you all you have ever wanted. While it may not work, it may not bring you what you want but it might just bring you the confidence to know that you did all that you could, and you took the risk which is a huge achievement, some people never have the chance to take. It might work or it might not. It is never that you weren’t good enough if you don’t get what you want from the risk, its more that the risk you took had a different idea of where you are going in your life. That is totally fine, remember, a risk not taken could become the biggest regret so follow your heart don’t always listen to your head.
