Neither my husband nor I are risk takers, probably not the best pairing a marriage should have. It means we hesitate before stepping out and making major changes, or we wait so long to decide that we miss opportunities.
We waited, we prayed, we talked. Over and over and over again. Finally, a tipping point came where we felt that decision time had arrived. We gave ourselves a timeline. And now the deadline has arrived, hoped and prayed for change hasn't occurred, so we have to do a painful thing.
Pain will be the result of the decision. Pain for others, pain for ourselves. But it is time to take the risk. Risk came be painful and it can be healthy. Risk makes us move on even when we don't want to.
