All forward motion involves risk.
Over the last forty-seven years of our house arrest, we’ve continuously heard, and likely used, the phrase “be safe.”
Who amongst us knew that the first eighteen months of 15 days to slow the spread are always the hardest?
All the preaching and scaremongering aside, if we’re ever going to return to anything that even looks like normal, we’re going to have to take some risks.
No, don’t do foolish things.
No, don’t be careless.
But at some point we’re going to have to stop living in fear. COVID or its many variants are here to stay. We have to learn how to live with them.
I wasn’t going down that road with this post, but there you have it.
It’s true that anything in life that is worth attaining will likely carry some risk.
Our job is to step out, move forward, and take some changes.
It’s not just about the virus.
That project you’ve been putting off.
That book you’ve been planning to write.
That new job or career you’ve been dreaming about.
Don’t stay in your safe zone.
Be willing to take some risks.
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
