Isaac Newton figured this out years ago, but I seem to need regular reminders. It is too easy for me to get bogged down by over thinking the details in life and forget that there's also the opposite - allow it to be easy.
While walking this morning I stood on quite an impressive cactus. Impressive in that it had the ability to go right through the sole of my shoe, bringing me down to earth abruptly.

However, had I been more than moderately cautious I would have missed this beauty about eight feet above my head.

My question to myself this morning is whether I want play it safe or aim for the stars, or perhaps, find some safe middle ground? No, I'm not liking any of those options. Too limiting.
How about aiming for the stars and knowing every so often I may be brought to earth, but knowing I don't have to stay there? That feels better.
What would you do? How do you feel about these options?
Think is my first link to Favourite Photo Monday.
Of course, my favourite photo of the week in the flower not the prickly footwear :)
