Life is all about risks, isn't it. Whether it's because I'm a Scorpio or because I was raised in a risk-averse environment, I've never been very good at risks. I've never been very good at gambling--too afraid of losing--or taking chances in life--what if I'm wrong? And yet, at the same time, I've taken huge risks for random reasons. I guess one of the more interesting lessons in this little soul journey I've been on for the past few years is learning how to take risks--how to be confident enough to risk losing in order to make strides forward in life. And like so many of these lessons, this one is broadly applicable to so many aspects of this little thing called taking control of my own life.
