Taking Risks in Life: Go Big or Go Home

"When you take risks you learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important. - Ellen DeGeneres"

It is 2014.  We are in a new year. It is a time for new beginnings.  It is all about starting over with a clean slate.

With a new beginning, it is important to understand where you came from and look what you did before. Some things in life may have went well. Some things may have been a total disaster. With that said, it is important to take things in life with a grain of salt.  It is also important to bring in some humor though the pain.

For me, 2014 will be a year of taking risks in my life.  I am 10 months away from the big 4-0 and I need to end my 30's with a bang.  I need something that will put the icing on the cake and close this chapter in my life.

No, I am going to do something really stupid.  No, I am not going to do something that might hurt someone physically or emotionally. No, I am not going to do anything that might embarrass my friends or family.

I just going to write a book.

Yes, a book!

And it has a title: "A Journey to Nirvana Using Knitting Needles and Running Shoes."

After re-writing my query letter, I spent last night on my computer sending it to 10 different prospective literary agents. I have another seven more literary agents that I plan to write to as I have some of  the book written since they prefer to see a proposal and/or a sample chapter already written.

I would be lying if I told that I was not scared sh**less!  I am taking a huge risk and going outside of my comfort zone. I am taking a risk at possible rejection.  I am putting everything out there.

I am know that it will be completely worth it. I am so ready to take this risk.

Bring it on!
