I used to believe that doing the same old familiar things every day was the way to be safe and happy. I felt that if I didn't try anything new or risky, then I couldn't get hurt or lose out. I soon learned that you can miss out on a lot of good experiences if you never take risks. One day, a few friends of mine were going sky-diving, and they talked me into going. When it was time to jump out of the plane, I almost couldn't do it. I finally did, and it turned out to be the turning point in my life. I learned that risks are part of a fulfilling life, and playing it safe too much can lead to boredom. I created this blog to encourage you to take that next risk! It may be the best thing you ever did!
