"I've been thinking a lot lately about taking chances. And how it's really just about overcoming your fears. Because the truth is, every time you take a big risk in your life, no matter how it ends up, you're always glad you took it." - Scrubs
Life is a mystery, it is different for everyone. Each moment, each second...is spontaneous and different. People will constantly drive advice into your head. Do this, believe that. Constant, constant, constant chatter. My advice? Listen, be thankful, accept, but live your life your own way. We have to learn and make our own mistakes, without failure or regret we sometimes cannot learn.
So with all this uncertainty, life is going to throw a million new and different and scary things at us. Some will bring us down, others will make us smile. They are all sorts of different shapes and sizes. What can we do? Do we wait? Wait for something new, something big, bold, different and exciting? I guess we could wait on the sidelines, wait for something exciting in our lives to begin...or, we could jump. Jump into something new, something different. Take a chance on the unknown, the unbelievable...and just maybe something amazing might happen.
So today take a chance, on yourself, on an adventure, a goal. Take a chance on someone...an experience, something new. Life is constant and changing and high pace - and sometimes, we get stuck in neutral. We get so comfortable in our lives, in our present stage that we reject new and different. Fresh is what we need, we need change. We deserve change. Life is constantly changing, moments are constantly happening. Life is constantly moving forward...you my friend, must move with it.
"You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest, that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present." - Jan Glidewell
Sometimes we hold so close to our past, what we know, the familiar, that we get stuck there. So don't sit, don't wait...jump, leap into something different, something new. It's the uncertainty of life that can be exciting. And behind every closed door lies a mystery. A new beginning, a new chance, a new change. Let it happen. Take a chance on something different today and don't be scared of the brand-new-bold things that could happen. Let them happen.
Sometimes life is about taking chances, taking risks. For the most part, we are always thankful we took them. Sometimes it's trying something new, going somewhere different...taking the long way around. And sometimes, it's forgiveness and taking second chances on others. Beyond everything we believe...it's taking risks that can make our lives exciting. Going beyond what we believe we deserve, can achieve, who we are. Most of the time, we deserve a lot more credit than we give ourselves, and a lot more than we allow ourselves to believe.
Take a chance on something different. Change your life.
