Risky Business

For something different, during the month of March I will occasionally utilising BlogHer and NaBloPoMo theme of march. I thought this would be the perfect chance to really put some changes in my life into play and hold myself accountable- whilst bringing you guys along for the ride.

The theme for March is Risk.

NaBloPoMo March 2013


This is definitely something I can relate to and will be using the prompts over the next month in my daily posts from time to time. Hopefully this risky theme can create momentum and continue throughout the rest of my life.

Because I have a problem with taking risks.

It doesn’t help that I’m a perfectionist, control freak, love routine, hate change and scared of not knowing what will happen. So this month’s theme will be quite a battle for me- but I’m looking forward to it.

I’m expecting to see myself take risks in areas of my life to which I normally wouldn’t such as the area of food/eating, social situations and just in my day to day life- for example…maybe *gasp* not having a plan at some stage.

It’s scary to take risks but you’ll also learn a lot about yourself when you do. I think a big part of me not taking risks in life is due to my anxiety. But I’m willing to challenge that.

I think it’s important that we all take risks in life.




Yes, sometimes risks lead to disappointment, let downs, failure, defeat. But we need to feel those things every now and again. We need to fail in order to rise. And sometimes those disappointments turn out to be gifts in themselves.




If you never take the risk you might never know what you’re capable of. Life wasn’t mean to be one tone.

Hopefully, through my blogging experience this month focusing on risk- you too will feel the drive to take risks in your life (and share them!).

Let’s get risky together ;)
