Risk

Oh, to be a child again and not fear all the risks of life!

I have been seriously contemplating my career path for the next few years, as you're already aware. While I'd love to become a midwife or open my own business, I know that I am not a risk taker and won't do it. I am too sensible and too conservative to risk all that money and time. How I wish that I was a single 20 something again. I would have my whole life ahead of me and I could make better choices with the knowledge I have now!

Not that I regret the path my life has taken. But, sometimes I am sad that I didn't take the opportunities that were presented to me at the time. I didn't realize that I wouldn't get those opportunities again. That sucks!

But, I have applied for a federal paralegal job that pays TONS more than I make now. With GREAT benefits and the ability to retire at age 52! The only downside- it's full time. I don't think I'm ready to go back to work full-time yet, so I'm sure they'll offer it to me!

We shall see.

And, faithful readers, don't worry I'll still post pics today!

I hear you. When we are young sometimes we don't appreciate the chances we get.
