    Anything worth having in life is worth hard work, commitment, and risk.  If you aren't willing to put these things into the great loves of your life are they really worth having?

    But You're Only Risking Apathy...

    Fear is all in the mind. If you want something bad enough, you will risk everything. To me, not caring about yourself, others and your goals, leads to agonising death of spirit.....and who wants to suffer that? Nobody. So, whatever it is, GO FOR IT!

    “sometimes You Just Have To Take The Leap And Build Your Wings On The Way Down.” ― Kobi Yamada

    Might take that leap this year...and move from all I have ever known to the opposite side of the states where I face the unknown. The worries set in when I know how established and successful I am here, but for love I will risk it all.

    Preparation

    For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation. ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

    I cannot say that I don't believe in love when I have seen so many beautiful people in love. What I can say is that love (romantic love) might not exist for me.
