Life can be risky right from the start
Did you notice the cry of a newborn?
He too feels the challenge, when time
To leave mother’s womb, facing unknown.

The new world around can be scary
For anyone, risk taking it’s a challenge.
That comes with a decision-making process,
It could be right or wrong, be always strong.

This is the only way to go ahead.
It is a way of survival for anyone
Acting on impulse it could be wrong,
So take the time, re-think the issues again.

So risk taking at some point in life
Can bring a success, but at the same time
One has to listen to their heart, and then
All shall be fine, positive thinking helps.

A voice from your heart will tell you
To risk, is to live your life to the fullest.
Even if it scares you to make the first step,
Don't be afraid, courage will go a long way.

"So risk taking at some point in life
Can bring a success, but at the same time
One has to listen to their heart, and then
All shall be fine, positive thinking helps."

Hello Editor in Chief, Changing Crow, Thank you for the words you shared in your comment.

"I want to evolve in this lifetime, and sometimes it can be challenging to follow the heart."

Really loved you honest thoughts, yes at times can be hard to follow the heart. However, it is better to be free than to be in a wrong place.

Nisa, my best wishes to you!

Vivir es arriesgar. Arriesgar es vida.
No conformarse con lo seguro, siempre hacia delante, siempre hay un camino, si te dejas llevar por el corazón.

This is sooooo beautiful and just thrills me as I am a great believer in not only listening to my heart but in taking risks. I really think to reach our full potential we have to learn to think with our hearts and dare to step into the unknown. This is truly one of your most powerful pieces. Sending love to you my beautiful rich-of-heart friend.

Always a little afraid, but that is good. You should scare yourself at least once a day.

Zuzanna Musial said...

Hello Brian,

A little afraid its quite normal. I am afraid too at times, but then again that is the courage to overcome the fear. Thank you for stopping by.

My best to you ~ Zuzanna

Fear of failure and avoiding risks , is never a healthy step in achieving success!
These are very inspiring lines Zuzanna! adhering to it will indeed make one go a long way.
Take care.

Zuzanna Musial said...

Dear Sadia ~ People facing risk every day without of realizing that life is risky. If one was trying to avoid the risk then as well, must stay in bed all day long, then what that means, not a healthy picture in this. Thank you so much for the realistic outlook for life, and for the comment as well.

Best wishes,
