Good Afternoon ! 🙂
I wrote this post about two months ago, and I’m just getting around to posting it lol better late than never right? 🙂
Taking a chance, making a decision, trying something new, all these things can be great and at times even difficult. How do you know which chances to take? How will you handle the change? There really is no way of knowing until you do it, but at some point you have to do it.
We go through life facing many changes that most people encounter, making them easy to relate to. For example going through school and moving up a grade, going through puberty, getting a first job,riding a bike, learning to swim, so on and so forth. Not everyone has done or experienced what you have, but usually there is someone or something you can relate it to making the transition smoother.
But what about the chance you take that brings you into the unknown? Moving to a new town, going away to college, changing your career, starting or ending a relationship…So what do you do? Take the chance or not? only you can decide that.
I think it’s important to always look at the bigger picture. Take a moment and really think about everything that could come along with it. I’m not talking about small things like what to wear or which show to watch, but chances and decisions that will effect your life in the long run. You’re not going to be able to come up with every outcome because no one can predict the future, but you have to at least evaluate the pros, and cons before rushing into anything.
Think of yourself and consider how it will make you better or worse, build your character or take you back a few steps. Think of the people closest to you, don’t make your decision based on them solely (unless they are directly effected as well, and if that’s the case bring them in to help you) but try to keep them in mind as well.
I’ve taken chances some good some bad that’s just how life is, but ultimately they have made me better; it’s lead me here to this point today. Some experiences while going through them don’t always seem like they are beneficial or worth while but they make it easier for you the next time you are faced with something.
Everyone has there own coping mechanisms while going through a new change in life, mine is praying.Prayer works (for me). So find something to hold on to before taking a chance, have an anchor to keep you while going through it or before starting a new endeavor.
Chances are just that… a “chance”. It may come back around or it may not. You never know how things may end up and I’m not encouraging you to up and move tomorrow or jump out of a plane lol but consider the one thing you have been debating or desiring to do but just haven’t taken the leap of faith…consider it today, and take a chance. 🙂
