Take Risks!


"I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it."  --  Pablo Picasso

The time is now for me to make the changes I've been planning.  I'm both excited and scared witless.  The workload
to prepare is not for the faint of heart.  While out with a friend this weekend, I found this necklace and knew it was to be
my talisman as I navigate new waters.  

Take risks:
If you win you will be happy.
If you lose you will be wise.

No truer words could be spoken.  

My life is comfortable.  So why change it?  These words by Seth Godin in a recent blog post say it best:

As we get more experienced, we get better, more competent, more able to do our thing.And it's easy to fall in love with
that competence, to appreciate it and protect it. The pitfall? We close ourselves off from possibility.

What possibilities are out there for me if I allow change to occur? It's one thing to talk about change, but quite another
to act upon it.  I want to know if what I am considering will actually work and that means taking risks.

One of Gam's favorite sayings was:

That which doesn't kill me only makes me stronger.

It's a slightly darker take on the same theme.  Life is challenging and it should be.  Otherwise, it would be awfully dull.
