John Marsden Writing Topic #423
‘The biggest risk is to take none.’ What recent risks have you taken?**
A recent risk I have taken is booking solo trips. This year I am aiming to complete a fun run in every state and territory, with three trips booked so far. Next year, although I haven’t booked it yet, I have put in a request for tickets to attend the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast on my own.
Some people may argue that actually going on the trip is a bigger risk than booking it and that is a valid point, however for me I view it as a risk as I’m paying for it all myself and it makes me a little anxious because I don’t know what life will throw at me between now and when each trip is.
