Describe the biggest risk you’ve ever taken. – topic # 79

Describe the biggest risk you’ve ever taken. Bonus: Describe the biggest risk you considered taking, but didn’t. I suppose the biggest risk I’ve taken could be seen as spending a semester in Europe when I was in college. It didn’t seem risky to me at the time as I saw it as a chance for an amazing adventure. I guess I look at risk as a dangerous thing rather than adventurous. It has a negative connotation to me.

If I define risk as something that requires large commitment without a guarantee of the desired result I come up with a different answer. In that case, risk for me was getting married and being a mom. Did I view these negatively? No. Do I now? Most emphatically, no. But both require a lifetime commitment from me. Was it worth it? Heavens yes!! Have I undertaken anything else that requires THAT level of commitment? No. both marriage and motherhood were like jumping out of a plane. I guess the biggest risk I considered taking but didn’t was to remain single. I didn’t do that because I felt that I was called to marriage and motherhood.  That’s my big risk, folks…Life on the edge with yours truly, a perennial optimist.
