There are times in life that call for one of two options: stay the course or leap blindly. It's a decision Michael and I have been wrestling with lately and it's not an easy one. I've always been the "stay the course" type of gal myself, but as I get older, I feel myself leaning more towards the opposite direction.
I'm at a point where I realize that I haven't taken too many risks in my lifetime. Risks are scary, they can sometimes be mistakes, but they can also sometimes be wonderfully rewarding experiences.
You see, I've always been a planner. I've had my life mapped out just the way I wanted it to go for some time now. Sure there have been a few bumps in the road where I might have had to adjust my course a tad, but really, I've followed the "right path" for most of my life. I've never really left much up to chance or taken any really risks when it came to big decisions. Life has been nice, planned and safe for quite some time now.
As I get older, I feel myself wanting a little more adventure. I want to live a little more . I want to experience a little more. I'm beginning to get more comfortable with the idea of stepping off my self designated path. I guess you could say I have the itch (and I don't mean that seven year one).
I've finally decided to stop saying no, stop worrying about all the "what if's" and "what about's". It's time for us to "leap"...well, just a little bit anyways. A smidge, you might say. Maybe like a bunny hop?
We said yes, to a little opportunity and we shall see where it takes us. More on that tomorrow hopefully when I can "officially" share.
Sorry for the cliff hanger.
