Take a risk.
Sometimes, I know for myself, I get so caught up in the moment, that I sometimes need to stop, focus, and look at reality. Especially when in a situation where I don't know what to do.
When i need to make a decision; there's always two conclusions to a situation, usually an easier one, and sometimes one you're not sure how it'll turn out. I need to remember that you only get one life, take that risk. Jump in with both feet first, because sometimes taking the risk will be the best choice you ever made.
How does Robert Frost say it: "two roads diverged in a wood, and I-I took the road less traveled, and that's made all the difference".
