    For me risk is…Essential!!When I was younger, I didn’t give it much thuhgot life was just an endless sea of opportunities!!! Risk?? Well, that was just part of the territory… that is, if you wanted to “live life”. As I got older, had children, responsibilities, etc, I became a bit more cautious; a little more thuhgot, a little less “spontaneity”, a lot more planning, and a lot less “risk taking”! Until I realized that, although yes, risk has the potential that the chosen action or activity may lead to a loss, almost everything we do carries some risk, and if we do not step out of our “comfort zone” and take the leap, then we’re just cheating ourselves of what “could be” and might as well resign to a life of “what if”!!! There’s no guarantee that not taking risks is going to lead to a smooth, rock steady life; Life will still throw you those curve balls ( some a bit bigger than others). I’m not saying, go ahead and live recklessly, but go ahead and do take a chance, believe in yourself, be a participant and do not settle to always being the spectator!!! You just might discover the best ride of your life!!
