TAKING RISKS







Just Do It!

Up until last year I thought I was a risk taker, this is in relation to life in general not fashion and beauty. When it comes to the frivolous things that this earth has to offer I can take risks all day however when it comes to business, matters of the heart, my family and of course extreme sports I tend to plan out everything down to mapping out the end results. I confess I'm an over thinker and sometimes it gets in the way.

It's both a good thing and a bad thing, just like most aspects in life balance is required. The worst thing about planning out anything is flexibility. Of course this life (the grand universe)will throw you a curve ball and your flexibility or rigidness towards a situation will affect how you handle it.

Taking risks is something I have to work towards this year, from the small things like networking (I suck at it) to the bigger things like being more adventurous and having that spontaneity. The Just Do It mentality is how I'm going to approach this just to avoid overthinking the situation and then killing the hopes of trying something new.

Check the last photo on this photo set, I'm sitting on a second floor ledge. What was I thinking? At the moment it was a cool idea (you know! Doing it for the gram!) now I'm just happy nothing happened. The photo is cool though...I love it! These are not the risks I’m taking about though, that's me being careless.

On the more adventurous side, the two things have to do this year is go for deep sea diving and skydiving, I've always wanted to but I've always been scared. If you've done this before share your experience in the comment box. What risks are you taking this year?

*Thank you to everyone who checked out the starting over post and the those who commented as well, you guys are giving me life. So much positivity in that comment section.*

  1. You look amazing and this post was just perfect timing as I go over certain things I want to start working on about myself in the new year. I am rigid in my ways as well. A chronic overpreparer (if you will) who gets totally thrown off balance when things don't go as planned. I probably need to take time to enjoy life a bit more. I am so glad you are back. The blog looks beautiful.

  4. I'm always scared of taking risks and like playing it safe but looking forward to pushing myself this year. I'll start with deep swimming pool swimming though before I jump to the sea but I hope you share your experience once you achieve your two adventures.

    I love outfit. Your top and sunnies is so summer gorgeous.
