Are You Willing to Rock the Boat?

Are You Willing to Rock the Boat?

Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh
A funny picture above, but it has some meaning.  Are you willing to rock the boat when there is a lot of risk involved?  Standing up and voicing your truth with Edward Scissor-hands, a Rhinoceros horn, and a Tin Man holding an ax is cause for concern, for sure, especially when you are floating on water in a rubber dinghy.  In reality, though, the risks may present themselves quite differently.

There is much truth in this cartoon caricature.  Risk comes in various forms; it may not feel good when you take it; it may feel scary, and you may even falter, but, in the end, the rewards and wisdom you gain from taking a risk, such as voicing your personal truth or reporting a sexual crime, will always be worth while.
