3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 2

erica-jong-quote.jpg

Author Erica Jong is especially quotable, she has continually reflected on the human condition. I particularly love this one, and, though not always fearless, I’ve tried to apply this as my maxim:

“If you don’t risk anything you risk even more.”

It speaks to fear and anxiety, control and any dose of the “What Ifs.” I gaev someone a fridge magnet once that said: “The tomorrow you worried about is the today that you survived.” In that spirit Jong is urging us to engage with life and not let it cow us, besides, what have you got to lose?
