Quote #111, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?

Here goes blog quote #111....

"The only way to be absolutely safe is to never try anything for the first time."
-Magnus Pike-

Safe is generally good. However, every once in a while, taking a risk can also be of value, sometimes significantly.

There is an old saying..."Don't be afraid to go out on a limb.. for that's where the fruit is".
If we always played safe and never took a chance.. we would live dull, boring, uneventful lives. And we'd also discover about 1/1000 of what LIFE has to offer.

Final thought.. assuming you LIKE something, how can you experience it again, for the second time, if you never tried it the first time?

That's my view....... What say YOU?

Playing it safe is good....however, I'll try just about anything once.

One word comes to mind as I read this quote:
B O R I N G!!!

NOT the quote....but LIFE, if we choose to live in this "safe" way!

An exciting, fulfilling life is ALL about being WILLING To WALK the be willing to be willing to TRY NEW THINGS! And we CAN trust ourselves to know intuitively what is really just our fear of the unknown (which is quite natural by the way!) and what is genuine danger.

Can you tell I feel passionate about this one?

I urge you to get out there and LIVE peeps! You'll LOVE it!

Much Love & Laughter to y'all ~

AAh love both of those Try anything once is a GREAT motto. Also, I think Leann is on point that our intuition will guide us in the right direction and never let us down.. if we listen carefully!

Go for it!
