it was Erica Jong who said, “if you don’t risk anything, you risk more.” Write about what this means to you.

what if. you will hear that in the back of your head until the day you croak. it will haunt you like the ghost of a former lover, you will always be wondering what could have happened. someone once said the greatest fear is the fear of the unknown. we should embrace that fear and plunge head-first into the unknown. the known is already known. the unknown is not. it could be the taste of a foreign cuisine, the feel of duckdiving in an ocean you’ve never been in before, or simply taking a road you never have before. if there is no risk there is no gain. you are only left with what you had when you started: a humanrobot. never putting it on the line keeps us in our comfort zones, and beyond our comfort zones is where we should be because that’s living life.
