Do you try new things, or do you always play it safe?

Most of my life, I have been more of the predictable choice type of person. Except for a couple big decisions, I often let fear prevent me from stepping outside of my comfort zone. Even though I ended up divorced, I always dated and married inside my own sphere of life. I went to college, but chose a community college and then Northern Illinois University, which is close to home. I have always lived in the suburbs and in communities that once again that are compatible to my experience. I was always good at math, but still went with a predictable major in college and career choice.

I want to take more chances in the next few years of my life; I want to try new things; I want to be brave and live life unafraid. I am not sure where this decision will lead me, but I choose to say yes more often because deep down I know that failing is not bad; never trying is. My mantra is no regret living.
