Take the risk or lose the chance


A lot of times, we encounter situations that require us to move beyond our comfort zone and TRY something unusual, something which intimidates us or something whose outcome we fear. Last evening, Sept. 27, 2018, I did something I had so firmly decided against ever doing it again! While the outcome of my fantastic experiment wasn’t as hilarious as expected and it really got me upset for the rest of the evening, I woke up with a big wide smile today morning, since I had chosen courage over fear. I was happy that if I look back to this day, I will not have any regrets of not taking the chance. I am happy that I will not have to live with the possibility of a ‘what if’. We miss a lot of opportunities just because we never tried. Isn’t it better to try and fail than not to try at all?

Embarrassment lasts a moment, regrets last a lifetime.

I guess it’s okay not to be okay at times. Facing our fears and failing miserably can hurt real bad. Rejections can be heartbreaking. But that’s how you learn and grow. Eventually, you will have one more story to tell your grandkids someday and laugh about with your friends, right?

Be comfortable with being uncomfortableย

  1. I must be grateful towards the one who makes me happy every time with her advice, inspiration, motivation and more over the care like no one else can express except one true friend (One who is the first to initiate step towards happiness). Thanks a lot for realizing me every time by knowingly or unknowingly Dude. Your post is always making me happiest.

        and most as a Servant
        of Dance and
        a Slave

        most i will do is invite
        someone Conservative to open

        Makes A Difference…
        And the Fact i ‘Drive’ to the ‘East’ to get tHere..;)


  3. There would always be different perceptions [in this case your photograph] and while I must say adjectives like cute, good looking and pretty are common compliments you hear time and again, I on the other hand always look at a photograph differently :p
    You’ve got nice long fingers, so naturally my next statement would be… you must be a very creative/artistic person. [people with long fingers normally are]

    • Oh my Gosh! To say I just had goosebumps reading your comment would be an understatement. It prompted me to immediately fire on my laptop to answer back ๐Ÿ™‚

      And I must say you pay attention to details and are pretty observant. Just last evening I was explaining the theory of having long fingers and creativity to a friend who thought I was probably trolling or doing some creative home production ๐Ÿ˜‚

      Bdw, my mom always tells me this about long fingers and I’ve also personally noticed in some people and I vet it ๐Ÿ’ฏ% ๐Ÿค—

      Thank youuuu for making my morning so awesome. I can’t really stop blushing ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  4. You must have heard/read this quote:
    “The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.”
    ..and clearly your shades are blocking the most beautiful part of you :p or guess I’m just thinking too much… the sun must be really bright too.
