take the risk

"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."
~Anais Nin (1903-1977)

this quote speaks volumes to me this evening.  what to we have to lose if we take the risk?  there are bigger risks than others and what we hold as value in those risk depends on our own perspective of course.  but we face risks every day.  many we never think of consciously.   the ones that weigh heavy on our minds are the 'bigger' risks.  should i quit my job?  should i try to do my business full time?  if i do this, how will it impact the kids?  some of the answers come easier than others, but i know for a long time i have shied away from the risks and played things safely.  and to me, that's not really living life to it's potential.
