The Control spectrum.
We live our lives on a spectrum.
There are those of us who relish safety, otherwise known as control. Risk is minimized, the route they choose has been straightened and flattened, the street signs are well lit and ample, and there is a sizable median to prevent anyone from colliding. This type of person has a stable job, but one with no real responsibility. It is a life not worth writing about. It is a fear state. This is one end of the spectrum.
The opposite end of the spectrum is completely out of control. A loose cannon, unpredictable, rash and volatile. The risk taker, the trouble maker, not really a place many people thrive to be.
Balance is the key.
What I propose is living just inside of out of control, but walking this fine line like a tight rope that you’re not afraid to fall off of.
