Inspiration of the Moment - Risks

Hi All,

I'm sorry that I've been MIA for a while. Been super busy - Had my parents visiting from overseas, and have also been busy planning for a trip to Melbourne and then along the Great Ocean Road back to Adelaide with some lovely friends from overseas, who I'm very excited to see, soon. I can't believe I didn't post at all for the whole month of October! Where has time gone? Anyway, I'm so behind on my reviews, so I thought I'd ease back into my blog with a great quote.

I'm a planner. I make lists for everything. I think it's because I like having control over parts of my life that I can have control over. I like to be prepared...and... I admit it, I have a fear of the unknown. Like this upcoming trip, I have such a detailed plan of the places we're going to, a list of all the dining options and all the driving times to each place... I even have pictures of all the places! LOL I like having my visuals, what can I say. ^_^

I've never driven along the Great Ocean Road before, myself, and I just want to get in as much of the sights as we can; to make the most of it for my overseas friends, who are coming to Australia for the first time. But that doesn't mean I'm not willing to be spontaneous and go off the planned path if it's necessary or if it feels right. Plans are just guides...and things do not always go as we expect. Sometimes, we need to take a risk... Which brings me to my quote/inspiration of the moment...  

"Risks... How we feel about them, says a lot about us. Every day, every moment, we calculate and assess, debate and decide. But when you get right down to it, the truth is, that when it comes to risk, the only thing that matters is that you take the ones that are right for you."

  4. @Mel: Thanks, Mel! For me, I struggle, too, with knowing which risks are the right one to take, but because I am a person of faith, I pray for God to give me the wisdom to know which risks are the right ones for me. ^_^ Yes, I'm very excited about my trip. Not long now... *Squee!* LOL
