In the wise words of…Abba
“Take a Chance on Me”
For some reason, that song kept playing in my mind as I took a trip with two new friends. One woman was just an acquaintance – I hardly knew her. What did she like? Dislike? How would it be to spend four full days with her 24/7?
The other woman is a newish friend. We’ve spent some time together and a new friendship is budding but now we were planning to be together for several days! Who knows what can happen.
But off the three of us went, driving from Chicago to Cleveland to see an art exhibit. Was I sure it would work out? NO!!!
But I took a chance. I jumped in with both feet and focused on the positive. And as the song says:
“Listen to some music, maybe just talking. Get to know you better…”
That is exactly what we did, and as a result, a new friendship was formed and a second one was deepened. They took a chance on me and I took a chance on two women who I shared four days of laughter, friendship and unforgettable experiences.
So, what do you think? Is there something you’d like to take a chance on even though you have no idea how it will turn out? Are you daring enough to take a chance on yourself? I’d love to hear the new stories you will create.

Thanks Nancy! Really good example. – Liz
It’s sometimes scary to take that chance, but when you find the courage, it will bring new experiences into your life that you never even imagined.
LOL..I have not had so much fun since college. Thank you for taking a chance on me.
Yes, fun is a good word to describe our trip. Taking that first chance now paves the way for many more.
