Now there are a few ways I could interpret this daily prompt. I could interpret it literally, saying that I have a fear of heights (Which I hope all you sane people have, without which you would probably do crazy things like base jumping and skydiving), or I could interpret it metaphorically saying how life is a precipice and I’m at a big turning point (Which would be a lie, since I’m not a person to consider lying down in my bed with my computer, writing blog posts with a bag of chips a turning point in life).
I could also write about Donald Trump wobbling along the precipice.
Nope, I’m going to write about taking a risk in life, creating your own precipice. Not silly things like skydiving and base jumping, but positive, calculated risks.

I think everyone should take a risk in life (and no, doing eeny meeny miny moe between a packet of chips and a packet of cashews doesn’t count).
My mom certainly took a big risk leaving her job in France to go to New Zealand when I was young, without which I wouldn’t be able to speak english. Taking risks will make you a more creative person, willing to do things. It will give you a different way of living, and will separate you from the usual daily boringness.
