Security is a kind of death. Tennesee Williams

This week, awaken your soul – take a risk:

  • Run the yellow light
  • Wear the platforms – if you fall, you’ll just stand up again.
  • Ask him out – he’s been waiting.
  • Try beet juice, and kale… they’re good for you!

Book the ticket – adventures await…and the money will come. Walk away if you really know in your heart that it’s best – you’ll be OK.

Flowers are budding, grass is sprouting. Although some days are still a little cold, dark and a bit rainy, remember the promise of a new season. The exuberance of life and growth is inside you, and you can unleash it…with a dose of risk. You create your life, and when you move with integrity, trust that you will be just fine…

“Living at risk is jumping off the cliff and building your wings on the way down.” -Ray Bradbury
