I’d rather have a life full of ‘Oh wells’ than a life of ‘What ifs’. When I look back on my life, I would like to say that I took the risk or went outside of my comfort zone rather than asking myself what would’ve happened if I took the chance.
You only live once, so I’d make the best out of each second that you have. Nobody wants to regret the things they missed, so get out there and do something with your life. Wouldn’t you rather say “Oh yeah, I did that!” versus “Yeah, I stayed home and knitted my cat a sweater..”.
Be smart with each choice you make, but don’t let other people affect your decisions. It’s your life. Live it respectfully, but never be afraid to take a risk. That’s what life’s about, experiencing new things and making the best out of what you are given.
