Sometimes I go out on a limb.
And wish I hadn’t.
Not for fear of falling.
Or something, me or the limb,
But getting out there
And not knowing why I went.
Sometimes you just gotta take chances!
Amen. Sometimes I’m not sure why. But we do!
“How’d I end up here, and why?” I know the feeling, and aren’t always like the answers I came up with.
Right? I mean, I don’t mind taking a chance. But sometimes I wonder what the chance is or why I thought it necessary. 😉
Ha! True story Colleen. ha!
🙂 So, you’ve been there too eh?
Oh Lord yeah – “Lord” being the operative word. I don’t know if you are a believer or not, but I have a great deal of Faith – although I am not at all religious and make hissing noises when a church goer gets too close. 🙂 From my perspective, God (call it the Supreme being, Allah, intelligent organizer, whatever) creates a great deal of havoc in my life. That could easily be interpreted as “doing what feels right” causes havoc which is why I entitled the following piece “Serendipity” – a perfect example of that of which you speak; http://cordeliasmomstill.com/2014/11/06/serendipity-guest-post-by-paul-curran/
I do believe. Like you, not a church goer (though I have and I will again I know). I will hop over and give you a read! 🙂
Amazing…sometimes chances are worth it though 🙂 At least they leave you with a great story to share! Cheers
They sure are Aishwarya!!! 🙂 And the stories are pretty great (usually!).
I believe in taking chances, that way you get to meet great opportunities! 🙂
“Meet great opportunities” that’s a fantastic way of saying that OB! 🙂
i’ve done that! )
I thought I saw you hanging from a limb! 🙂
Wow this is so very true, many times for me!
😉 I am sure if we could have parties with all of us up in the trees and out on a limb. 😉
And it’s not only boys who climb trees…. ❤️
Oh no….not in my world. 🙂 Girls all over the place up there!
I have been out on the limb before and it isn’t fun at all! But sometimes I had to in order to know what my limitations are (or aren’t).
Good point. Limb scooting is a definite way of finding out our limits.
Done that too Huck. 😉
Been there and it’s never fun climbing back down, wondering why I went in the first place. Sometimes limbs should be left for someone else to venture out onto and sometimes they should be left alone entirely. Unfortunately, we always seem to find this out after the fact.
😉 Sometimes we do benefit from the limb extending. It’s going out there and sometimes realizing WHAT THE HE!! was I thinking that gets me. 😉
I have that feeling when I move from one room in the house to another 😆
Ha!!!! Well, at least you’re in safe proximity to the ground. 😉
Sometimes you just have to go for it. Hopefully you can shimmy back the way you came, or hang out awhile and remember why you wanted to do this crazy thing😜
🙂 If I can only remember….. 😉
Ain’t that the truth
Sure can be.
Going out on a limb does hold some amount of uncertainty and doubt. Usually there is a kernel of knowing the reason which may grow or may die. We only know when results come to fruition, Colleen.
True words there Robin. We don’t know unless we try. And then when we try…..it’s the only way to find out. Even though it may not be a great fruition, it’s better than wondering/wandering forever what ‘might’ have been if we had only gone out there….
One right after the other – thought-provoking! You are awesome!
Oh my, why thank you Belinda! 🙂
My pleasure!! 🙂
Going out on a limb is a vulnerable place to be. Sometimes we need to go there to find our way back to ourselves. 💛
That is definitely one reason to go out there Val. Thank you. 🙂
I seem to be emojis impaired on my phone, so *smiles works? Chances are necessary in life I find. ♡
*smiles definitely works. 🙂
Chances are good. I thought it humorous how many ‘we’ take and then wonder after the fact “what was I thinking!!!”
I know right?
i think it’s probably still better to have a little adventure and at least get out there. Sometimes the act of getting out there is better than understanding why. Love the newer additions/use of color, Colleen.
Thank you Debra. I like taking chances. Find it funny on reflection how many times they are followed with a shake of the head and wondering ‘why’!! 😉
