Taking Chances

Taking chances can be absolutely terrifying. But I mean, that’s all a part of taking risks, right? The odds are questionable, and the outcome uncertain, but without risk there is no reward.

In my own life, I’ve found it easier to stay in one place than step outside my comfort zone. My comfort zone is safer because, you know, it’s my comfort zone.

But looking back on my life, I’ve also discovered something freeing about stepping outside my safety net. It’s terrifying, don’t get me wrong, but I’ve never regretted taking chances.

Sure, I might look back on some of the chances I’ve taken and wondered why I thought (insert crazy idea here) was a good idea, but I don’t regret risks I’ve taken.

Risks are worth taking because even if they account to nothing, I’ve grown and learned something just simply by leaving my comfort zone.

There is a whole world outside the safety of a comfort zone. Adventures yet to be discovered. A whole life just waiting to be lived.

I realized that’s where my life is. Outside where I feel safe.

I feel most alive when I step out in faith. When I take risks.

Taking chances can be scary, but just because something is scary, doesn’t mean that it’s not worth doing.

I think the more terrifying something is, the more I know that I should go for it.

What chances have you taken? What was the result?
