I told Precious that I feel like we are on the verge of something big
not sure yet.
I read this little poem called Risk when I was in college
and am now LIVING it!
To laugh is to risk appearing the fool
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental
To reach out for another is to risk involvement
To expose your feelings is to risk exposing your true self
To place your ideas, your dreams, before a crowd is to risk their loss
To love is to risk not being loved in return
To live is to risk dying
To hope is to risk despair
To try is to risk failure
But risks must be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
Persons who risk nothing do nothing, have nothing, and are nothing
They may avoid suffering and sorrow, but they cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love, or live.
Chained by their attitudes, they are slaves, for they have forfeited their freedom.
Only a person who risks is free.
tonight I am free
and on the verge of something BIG :O)
