We must go out. We simply must. We’re wired to go head first into the waves and push the adventure envelope.
But, with every good thing comes risk. And with every risk taken, the chances improve that sooner or later you’re going to lose. And when you do, welcome to the rocks.
Yes, they hurt. Yes, there is some pain, broken bones, and lost wages. Yes, there is probably even some hospital and court visits to be had if you take up the journey. Could we have done it differently? Probably not, we didn’t know better. Could we have avoided it all together? Yes, by not going out. But, where’s the life in that?
Let’s go out, take our bumps and bruises along the way, and not shy away too much the next time. It’s just better this way! Bring on the waves, bring on the rocks, we’re all-in.
