Q&A - Risky Business or Safety Dance?

Do you prefer taking risks or having a safety net?
I would say that I'm a healthy balance of both... though really it depends on the situation.

I mean, I've said before that I'm self-diagnosed OCD, so I like organization and planning... though there is definitely a time and place for that sort of thing.

But then again, I LOVE the randomness of life. Just hopping in a car and heading somewhere and doing whatever on a whim.

It sort of seems as I've gotten older - the spontanaiety of life has dwindled some. I think it's mostly due to jobs and relationships, etc. Nowadays, I luxuriate in my spare time at home curled up with the internet or a book and a cocktail.

My life as of late has become more planned with my job and friend gatherings, etc. (Gotta take care of that adulting nonsense to secure you have a place to live and all that before you can run off and join the circus... or some such.)

Risk-taking... I need to do more of that. As it is, my love of trying and experiencing new things has been the most 'risky' I've been. I also follow the school of logic about confronting my fears - most of them anyway - so I suppose that classifies as being a risk-taker.

But yeah, in my current economc climate and reality, I am more of safety net girl. I think I've been burned too many times in some important things to take risks that others would be fine with. I want to be stable before taking another leap that may leave me falling off the edge into chaos.

Okay, that sounded a bit dramatic, but it's taken me a while to get where I currently am, and it's not all that stable-feeling... so of course, with that said, I don't want to rock the boat with any unncessary risky behavior that may jeopardize what I've started and am currently cultivating.

I suppose in the end - you can call me a risk-taker with safety net paranoia.

Or something like that.

Later my lovelies.

Have Goodness!
