mhawkinsI wore blue jeans to church

On Easter morning, I took a risk. (ok it was a pretty small risk, but still a risk) While my husband had on dress pants, and my son had on khakis, I wore blue jeans to our Easter Sunday sunrise service. I did dress them up a bit with sandals and a pretty pink sweater, though. While I wear them quite often, it was probably more noticeable yesterday with so many people dressed in their Easter Sunday finest. I feel strongly that casual (though neat) dress is just as appropriate as dress clothing. Not to mention, the service was outside at 7 a.m., so it was really chilly! Anyway, I took a little risk, and it didn’t kill me. ;) 3 days ago

mhawkinsI'm retiring!

Ok, this is a goal, but it’s also a bit of a risk. I’m retiring from teaching in May and will draw a nice retirement, but in order to maintain the lifestyle we enjoy, I’m going to have to be sure to keep my income up. So, I’ll have two other work-from-home jobs that should thankfully supplement my finances. So, a bit of a risk, but definitely one that’s worth it ~ woo hoo!! 3 days ago

viobioWanting to not feel fear

Sometimes, things just flow. And I don’t even notice that there are risks to what I’m doing. That’s what I want.

To Fear:

“Hello, Mr. Fear! There you are! You and I are one. I embrace and comfort you. There, there. It will be ok, shhhhh. [Swaddling.] OK, I am dropping you off at the pool. Fly away, little guy. What brought about this fear? Past misunderstandings. Well, I can avoid the fear sneaking in by keeping myself busy with the habit of getting on a roll at work before surfing.” 9 months ago

viobiorisk for authenticity

I was ready to give up on this goal. Hang-gliding etc. is not a priority right now. But then I realized that doing work is a risk. Getting in touch with my feelings is a risk. This pink shirt is a risk. I need this kind of risk to feel alive, progressing and free to be authentic. 13 months ago

mhawkinsa good feeling!

I made a video for my real estate site and posted it just now—it’s really hard to put yourself out there and risk negativity or criticism… but I did it! Taking a risk feels really good… now on to the next one! 15 months ago

Ive been thinking about this recently and I think I actually do take more risks that I thought, as in most situations I would rather follow things through to see what happens, than not do then and end up wondering ‘what if’ forever.

So I am making headway, I just need to apply this to more aspects of my life. 17 months ago
