S is for Sorry

There's a saying, "Better to be safe than sorry", but when it comes to the bigger things in life, is that really true? Is it better to stay safe in the comfort of something you may be luke-warm happy about, versus maybe having to be sorry for a decision to change later?

Sure you might offend some people with your new habit, you may leave others behind in search of a new job or new place to live in, but wouldn't you rather say "sorry" to those you might offend and leave behind, then live in complacency and be "safe"?

Sure I'll look both ways before crossing a street, I mean, in some cases it's absolutely imperative to be safe, but being safe shouldn't dictate every aspect of your life. You only live once, and are allowed a few mistakes (if that's what they end up being). Take a risk, stay up too late while enjoying a night out, eat too much but thoroughly enjoy what it is your consuming, and love too much and never look back.

It's time to fill out that job application, explore a new city, try a new hobby or whatever the case may be for you! Let's throw caution to the wind and be sorry now, and safe later! Dare to leave the comforts of what you have, for the dreams you long for. Go out there and get reckless, have something worth being sorry for. Take the leap, apologize if you must, and keep moving forward. Amen!
