Just for Fun

Now why would a serious professional be this silly?  The answer to that question is important in a business which deals every day  with clients that have financial problems.  Life is far to short to loose your sense of humor.  Life is for living, laughing, and  loving.  You can quote me on that.

Here is one of my all time favorite poems:

 

To laugh is to risk appearing the fool.

To cry is to risk appearing sentimental.

To reach out for another is to risk involvement.

To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.

To place your ideas, your dreams before a crowd

is to risk losing them.

To love is to risk not being loved in return.

To live is to risk dying.

To hope is to risk despair.

To try is to risk failure.

But risks must be taken, because the greatest failure

in life is to risk nothing.

The person who risks nothing, has nothing

and is nothing.

They may avoid suffering and pain, but they cannot learn,

feel, change, grow, love, live.

Chained by their servitude, they are slaves,

they have forfeited their freedom.

Only a person who risks is free.
