Risk

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, a lot of experimenting, a lot of soul searching.

I like the me that takes risks.  I like the person I see in the mirror when I say, “yes”.

I’ve been lucky.  I’ve taken crazy chances.  I’ve tried awesome things.

I’ve lived up to that 9 year old in DARE class who said, “I’ll try anything once.”

I’ve never lost control.

I’ve given it away

to people..

to opportunities..

And then I’ve reigned it back.

I’ve looked in fear at those risks..

Risks to my career, my reputation, my life..

And I’ve grabbed on tight to what’s predictable.
