taking chances.

so i came to the realization last night that i hadn't posted anything on here for quite some time. and i have been struggling to think of something awesome to say, yet nothing great is coming to mind. yet, i did something this week i never thought i was capable of doing. i took a risk. it's kind of a big deal i think. and even though it didn't turn out perfectly i was able to achieve something i never thought i could do. is there anything more satisfying as taking a chance and winning? i think not. there are lots of great quotes out there about taking chances which i find to be quite inspiring including;

I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it. ~Pablo Picasso

You'll always miss 100% of the shots you don't take. ~Wayne Gretzky

Take risks: if you win, you will be happy; if you lose, you will be wise. ~Author Unknown

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark; professionals built the Titanic. ~Author Unknown

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. -Mark Twain

so, i guess what i'm saying is...get out there, take a risk, do the 'impossible', do the thing that terrifies you {as long as it's a good thing!} and don't look back! i now feel more prepared for the challenges which will come in my future because i did the thing i thought i couldn't do. it feels swell!

also, two of my favorite musicians have new albums out! whoo hoo! they are AMAZING!
