Do you consider yourself a risk taker? In life? In fashion? In relationships? In work? In school? In general? Do you take risks? Or do you play it safe?
This is something I’ve been thinking a lot about recently. In so many ways my life is not how I thought it would be or pictured it would be five years ago. Meaning, if you had asked me five years ago that I’d be married and pregnant and living in North Carolina, I would have thought you were on something. But I absolutely LOVE my life and wouldn’t change anything about it for the world.
And in a lot of ways, I am where I am now because I took risks. Now, I could have been somewhere totally different if I had took different risks, but I didn’t. And I’m here. And I’m happy.
But that makes me think about my own future. What other risks am I afraid of taking that are right in front of me? There are things I want to do that, quite honestly, I’m a little afraid to step out and just try.
Failure. I’m terrified of failing.
But, if I fail, I want to fail big. Or something. I don’t want to kind of fail.
Do you know what I mean? Is this way too vague and existential for a Monday? I dunno. It’s something we’ve been talking about at church a lot recently and it’s just gotten my wheels spinning in my brain.
Do great risks equal great rewards?
What do you think?

“12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 3:12-14
