Taking A Risk

Sometimes in life you have to take risks. You have break out of your comfort zone in order to follow your instincts and get to where you need to be. But the fact remains that while change is a necessary and healthy part of life, it’s also scary as hell! Turning your back on everything that you know and what you’re used to is not a course of action for the faint-hearted.

You’ll encounter plenty of naysayers on your journey against the grain: people who will assure you that you’ll fail, that it’s a terrible idea, that you’re deluded and reckless, but please, pay them no mind. Trust yourself and believe in your capabilities. If you have a vision, if you have a gut feeling, follow it. At the end of the day you know yourself better than anyone else and you know what’s best for you.

Yes you’ll fall down at times, that goes without saying; you’ll question yourself and have doubts. But you’ll get back up because you’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. Don’t worry about living up to anybody’s expectations but your own, it is your life after all. And you only get one shot at it so make it count.

And last but not least, listen to me when I say that your risk will pay off; it’s a case of when, not if. 😀

  1. Very well said, I always believed in “change is the only constant” and to add more to that famed line, great for personal growth, so yeah have to cross that comfort zone and take risks.

  2. Thanks so much for stopping by. I’ve just read a couple of your poems and I have to say I love your writing style! It’s very engaging and relatable, plus your use of enjambment really makes the words flow from line to line. Keep up the great work 😀 I’ll definitely be checking out more of your writing.
