Daily Prompt: Too Big To Fail

Daily Prompt: Too Big To Fail

Tell us about something you would attempt if you were guaranteed not to fail (and tell us why you haven’t tried it yet).

When someone ask me a question like this, its either I would flip out and start blabbering my answers or I would stare long into my inquisitor’s face – lost, confused and mouth open.

Most of the time, its the latter part.

If its guaranteed that Im not going to fail, I have 7 things in mind today that I would like to attempt. (Please feel free to stop reading if things starts to get too ridiculous.)

1. Sing in a band.

2. Write a book.

3. Get Married.

4, Color my hair purple (this is an auto-fail but I’d like to keep this on my list)

5. Get some Scuba Diving License.

6. Teach.

7. Throw my phone, destroy my laptop. Quit my job and go to a far-away place with no modern structure obscuring my view of the sky. Build a home by the beach – with white fence and sunflowers.  Grow an organic garden in the backyard. Have silent walks along the shore, picking shells and odd-shaped rocks or have occasional chats with local fisherman. Strung a hammock and sit there all day with a good book in hand, forgetting time and space.

The last part is the killer : “Tell us why you haven’t tried it yet”. 

That, my friend, needs alot of soul-searching,
