My Guideposts - Week32

It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived--in which case, you fail by default.

Makes risk-taking sound not so risky doesn't it?  I think I need to try something new, something hard enough that I just might fail.  And then I'll try again.  Because growth and change don't come easy, do they?

  1. Do it! I have always been a risk taker and most of the time, it has been worth it. Some flops along the way, but I learned from them.

    P.S. When I first saw the pink eggs, I couldn't believe it. They also lay lovely brown eggs, yum!

  2. Really true...and when I need a kick start to motivate change I reinvent myself....I'm presently sporting a Sharon Osborne look in hopes of taking a risk, bringing me out of shell into a new mindset to push ahead one step at a time, and quit worrying about whether or not I will succeed. There are no failures...because we learn from failure...therefore we've succeeded in getting something out of failure...if not the intended result.
