taking chances…

“Pearls don’t lie on the seashore. If you want one, you must dive for it.”

Chinese proverb

Oysters

That’s what I’m going to do this week, go diving.  Diving for something new to inspire me, something risky, something to spice things up a bit.  Life can peacefully fall into routine, and sometimes we have to shake it up.  Every now and then we need to take a risk, and while we wait to reap the rewards, sometimes you realize the journey is the reward.

Like the old saying goes, “If you shoot for the moon you’ll fall in the stars” type of thing.  I want to put myself out there for a new opportunity, a new adventure.  Every now and then we just need a recharge, and although I didn’t make any New Year resolutions this year, I am just feeling that itch.  There are a lot of people out there who say it better than I do, so I will end with some quotes that I hope you will enjoy as well.  May you continue to enjoy the best of food and life, keep cooking and feeling inspired, and find a new chance to take.

“Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.” Denis Waitley

“Go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is.” Jimmy Carter

“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.” Bill Cosby

“A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.” John A. Shedd

“Every man dies, but not every man really lives.” Braveheart
