Lemming Inspired Me

Today my horoscope says:

"People are saying one thing and doing another -- but hold your judgment on them. The only way to get what you know you deserve is to take a chance, no matter how enormous it seems. You can do this, so have some faith in yourself. While it may spook you, it'll be worth it in the end."


I've never been much of a risk taker. As I said in my first-ever blog post, I am fairly intense and analyze most everything to death. This is not the same as not being able to make a decision, I make decisions fairly quickly since I pretty much know what I want, like and dislike, etc. I just wasn't born with the gene they now say makes you a risk-taker or a "thrill-seeker." I see no sense in jumping out of a perfectly good airplane or rafting down raging whitewater. I have paddled soundlessly in my canoe through nearby sloughs and have crouched in wetland grasses with binocculars just to get a peek at a Snowy Egret or a Cinnamon Teal.

I'll have to mull over what chance it is I should take.
