Thursday Thoughts #5: Risk

Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.

Thursday Thoughts

(Please feel free to use this button!)

I love learning more about my fellow bloggers. So I created a weekly blog link up, which happens each Thursday. To do this, I post a word prompt the day before (on Wednesday so you can have your blog ready on Thursday).  I will also post next week’s word on the bottom of my own Thursday Thoughts post each week.

All you have to do to join in each week is to write a blog post about that this week’s word.  Come back here on Thursday (like today!) and enter your blog address into Mr. Linky below so others know who else participated and we can all visit other blogs. Please leave a comment too! And please feel free to use the button above!

Please note: If you don’t write a blog post and participate, then please do not put your website address in Mr. Linky. It’s only fair to other people. 


Boy is life full of risks! Honestly, I think anything that is worthwhile is a risk. Loving is a risk… you may lose that person and go through heartache. Taking a job is a risk, because you never know if you’ll like it or how secure the job is. Having kids is a risk… because I imagine it’s pretty much like having your heart walking around outside your body all the time.

We are taking a huge risk with IVF. Not only financially, but also emotionally. Huzzy is not okay with adoption at this point. And he’s not okay with another round of IVF (though we’ll do any FETs that are available). And right now I’m not okay with being child free. I don’t know if I’d ever be able to get there. And that, my friends, is a BIG emotional risk.  A risk I’m not sure my heart can take.

What does risk mean to you?
