Pansy! Have you ever thought about risking? How about its consequences? Have you ever had the second thought if it’s worth it? Well, so am I! Just like any other person, I always question myself if the advantage would be greater than its consequences. But what really is that thing that keeps us from risking?
To tell you honestly, I am quite skeptical when deciding if a thing is worth the risk. Not really because I am not a risk-taker but because of practical things that constraints me from doing so. We place ourselves so much in the shoes of the people that we might disappoint in the process that we forgot what it is really to live at risk. Growth becomes stagnant because life gives us no thrill. We play safe, we follow the norms people used to follow to achieved that ‘success’ they are telling to deceive us. I am not against living by the rules, it is just that, when we do follow the rules strictly, we oversee the great little possibilities for us. And isn’t it that success is about contentment and happiness?
But sadly, we still live by the rules because it’s more practical thing to do. We do what we are suppose and asked to do until we get tired of the routines and find the freedom to keep ourselves taking the road less traveled. Risky but definitely worth a try, worth knowing the possibilities that lies ahead for us.
So here’s to a picture from my first year in college. A different side of me, actually, since I’m not fond of making that stare look. Anyways, worth it.
