A point was brought up today about how much of a risk-taker I am... or not. :) You see, there are things I take risks in. Calculated risks, mostly. Being able to take risks and calculated risks helps me in a lot of areas in my life. I took a risk to adopt.
But there is a point when risk taking is really a loss of control. That, I don't do so well with. I don't do drugs. I don't water ski, or snow ski. Or anything, pretty much, that involves potential loss of physical control.
Anyway, it's just an interesting thought. Think about it. Do you take risks? Or are you in control? I'm in control... too much so sometimes, I admit. Alpha Mama Dog here... so, that's what's on my mind today.
I believe we should strive to find balance in our lives. There are things I *must* let go of and give control over to someone else... ie, Mindy's divorce. I cannot control that outcome. But, damned if I don't try (in my heart)!!! lol And, actually, in any other physical way I can help. But in this case, it is more a reality of someone evil having control over her or myself and my family. Uh huh. Nope.
But it does lead to the interesting questions.... risk or control? They're definitely related. And I'm definitely finding my balance. :)
