Take the Risk

No bird can fly without opening its wings, and no one can love without exposing their heart.  –  Mark Nepo – The book of Awakening


Every vision I have worked towards, has involved risks.  The risk of being vulnerable, the risk of failing, the risk of missing out, the risk of losing money, the risk of exposing my wounds.

But in each and every case, the risk was worth it. In each and every case, I learned to spread my wings a little bit more and in doing so, I have discovered freedom and I have discovered a limitless potential that I would never have known had I stayed where I was… in fear.

No risk. No return. What are you waiting for?

“If you dare nothing,
then when the day is over,
nothing is all you will have gained.”

Neil Gaiman

  1. Thank you, Karen. I appreciate this; it recalls to my mind Rumi’s “Gamble everything for Love …”. The new design for your blog looks beautiful, too! Blessings, Jamie
