“You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.”

Good morning, fellow risk takers!
Yes, today is all about taking RISK.
I am not talking about stupidly risking your life for adrenalin rush …..
…. I am talking about taking risk in everyday life …. getting out there …. getting out of your shell….
… living life to the fullest …. be open to everything that life has to offer so you don’t miss an opportunity.
Few months ago I found myself in a life rut ….. I started feeling like a mommy robot …. I was on an auto-pilot floating through life. I stopped being adventurous in the kitchen & in my daily life.
Long story short …. I gave myself a mental slap & I promised myself that from this day forward I will
…. do something new …. something that scares me or makes me nervous … something I never tried before ….
Yesterday …. I made SPICY CHICKEN & CORN DISH ….
You probably go like: “seriously, she took a risk with Spicy Chicken & Corn dish?”
What you don’t know is that I do not eat spicy food therefore I do not make spicy food.
I took the plunge …. I took out the spices …. I figured out the recipe …. I served it to my family & I ATE IT!
I ate it & I actually enjoyed the KICK IT UP A NOTCH CHICKEN & CORN.
So go out there today & SEIZE THE DAY …… CARPE DIEM, my friends …. CARPE DIEM!
… and after that make some SPICY CHICKEN & CORN DISH …..
