During our lifetime, some of us will spend a lot of time weighing up the pros and cons on the things we choose to do and that’s right.
I tend to assess my options first. That way I make less mistakes and weigh up any risk factors. Unfortunately, as is the case, some of the things we choose, or love to do, come with risks. We just have to open a newspaper or listen to the news to hear of the risks other people have taken.
Walking away from something never seems an option, particularly once that person has made up their minds it’s what they want to do. We don’t always believe in playing things safe. We’re often prepared to take risks and do what we love to do, than walk away and regret our choice for not trying. I’m not sure how many of us will equate what we love with any possible risks.
If we choose to go ahead, we should at least know exactly what we’re getting ourselves into. It’s no consolation of course, for loved ones, who will always have concerns.
For those taking the risks, in some respects it makes what they’ve done easier, because whatever the outcome; they know it had been their choice.
