    Honestly I must be wired all wrong because for me that's so scary and is the reason why I am not spontaneous.
    Maybe I'm just too paranoid but it's because your whole life can change in a matter of seconds I always presume it will be negative.
    Not that I need things super planned out to the tee but I like some kind of structure.

    This video though did give me food for thought.
    Regardless of my personality, I liked this video actually.

    This was just what I needed to see today. Excellent video! It really puts things into perspective. I play it safe way too often. Taking a chance can result in something amazing. Maybe not right off the bat, but one situation always leads to another. Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

    Similar to another short film by the Spierig brothers (who directed Daybreakers)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0459208/

    But it's disappointing that these short films make the same cheesy suggestion that a life with a partner is necessarily better.

    I don't think it means that life with a partner is necessarily better, just that life should be experienced to the full extent, whether we want to share that experience with someone else is up to us.

    I know and that's what doesn't sit well with me.
    I am definitely not a risk taker so if there's even a small possibility that it could turn out badly, I will most likely not indulge whatever it is.

    I thought it was pretty good. I saw it as taking chances by conquering our fear and the result may be better than the alternative.

    Nice.

    However if everyone took chances there would be no more "missed connections" on Craigslist. icon_biggrin.gif

    I often make snap decisions, I was trained for it. War doesn't stop or slow down to give you time to decide what to do next. You decide NOW, or you perish.

    And in my personal life the bulk of these quick decisions have had good outcomes. Among the few times I drag the process out is with big ticket items, like homes and motor vehicles. But oddly with love seldom, I just know.
