Risky Business

"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."
                                                                                            --- T. S. Eliot

My word this year (in bracelet form). . . 

FullSizeRender 52

Why?

Well.  Some of my reasons for choosing this word this year . . . just won't ever appear here in the blog.  (Because not my story to tell.)  (Or just too complicated.)

Let's just say. . . 

Sometimes, I feel pretty brave; pretty willing to step out there and try something new.

But.

There are plenty of times when I don't.  (Like . . . you should see me when it's time to host a party.)  (Not. Good.)

For the last seven years, I've been working on stepping AWAY from The Edge.  Avoiding going over.  Holding on.  Keeping it together.  Avoiding the scary parts.

But you know what?

I'm ready to actually . . . step beyond.  To let myself go over -- in ways I choose.

And that?  That is where RISK comes into the picture.

Ready?

Let's GO. . .
