Living on the edge

Over the weekend, two of my sisters and a cousin, went to Las Vegas, NV. While there, they went to visit the Grand Canyon, a place that I’ve longed wanted to experience. It was absolutely breathtaking, and filled with amazing heights and views, based upon the photos and videos they shared. There were two photos in particular that were sent, that not only caught my eye, but held my attention. When I saw them, I smiled because of their beauty (my sisters, that is), but I admired how they are “literally” living on the edge. Immediately, I was flooded with memories of our childhood, and how the things we dreamed of doing, we now are. We’ve always wanted to travel and really enjoy life, but poverty got in the way of that.

By God’s grace and complete blessing, we’ve been able to experience places and things we’ve dreamed of or saw on tv. Back then, I remember we used to play this game called, “That’s my car.” Whenever we’d see a nice, fancy car pass by that either of us wanted or liked, we’d instantly yell out, “That’s my car.” The Range Rover was always “my car,” until God one day showed me an Audi. It seemed everywhere I looked, there was a black Audi. It didn’t matter the year or model, all I knew, a black Audi was now “my car,” and guess what? IT IS! All that I am and all that I have, is because of God! I’m only able to live as I do, because of His allowance, and I’m thankful He didn’t allow anything to get in the way of that.

If you’ve ever wanted or desired something in life, and you have the means to get it, do it!

If you’re still wondering whether or not you should take that dream vacation, go on it!

If you’ve led a “safe” life, because you are afraid of change, maybe it’s time you start living on the edge!

Anytime you’re taking an opportunity, you’re taking a risk. The question is, “Would you rather take a risk, or regret you didn’t?”    

Until next time my NOTE takes!
