I’ve recently said that I’m no risk taker. Playing it safe is easy and comfortable but it has been keeping me in the same place. I won’t reach each my true potential there. So this girl, who always played it safe, knew there was some decisions to be. It was time to gamble.
I rolled my first dice. I took a chance applying for a job through a family friend. It isn’t exactly what I’m looking for, but I always said I would keep an open mind . It almost didn’t happen. I talked myself out of my decision, and then negotiated with myself to delay it. I changed my mind quite a few times, but weighed my options. Comfort and familiarity versus, my happiness (or lack thereof), stifling my potential, and my bigger dreams.
So I went for it. As of right now, nothing has become of it, and maybe nothing will come of it. However, I can’t ignore the fact that I did something I was initially so nervous about. Maybe even afraid of doing. And it hit me, this isn’t so bad. This isn’t so hard. I felt a rush of determination, and motivation, that will give me the drive I need as continue on.
So I’ll be rolling more dices, and taking more chances. I don’t know where I’ll end up for sure, but I know one thing, I’m through playing it safe.
