Friday Photo: Ebb and Flow

with 2 comments

Stormy water hits a calm beach.

Nature is about balance; the coming and going, the ebb and flow.

This got me thinking about the ebb and flow of opportunities for risk that come and go every single day.

Every. Single. Day.

We are inundated with opportunities. The question is what we do with them.

It’s this simple: If I never try anything, I never learn anything. If I never take a risk, I stay where I am. If I go ahead and do it, that affects how much I continue wanting to do it. When I hold myself back, I trade appearances for the opportunity to find out what I am like. – Hugh Prather
