feelings with a hot balloon

There are all kinds of ways to seek thrill and adventure in life. Some do it in the traditional way of roller coaster rides and hot air balloon flights, while others do it in more meaningful ways, like telling someone they love them, or picking up and moving to an unknown land.
The thrill: roller coaster ride; The risk: losing your lunch!
Amusement parks are a great way to spend a summer's day. Some believe that amusement parks are just for kids but I beg to differ. They are fun at every age and stage of life. You get to experience all aspects of life, the ups, the downs, the twists and turns. There is little risk when it comes to roller coaster rides. They are generally tested and very safe. Just make sure not to eat or drink too much before hand!
The thrill: hot air balloon ride; The risk: enjoying yourself too much
Hot air balloon rides are a safe way to enjoy a bit of thrill and a lot of beauty. Best to go up on a clear day when you can profit from the stunning views that surround you. Float through the skies in a basket with the ground beneath you and the heavens above. There isn't any risk involved in hot air ballooning. A pilot will take you up and take care of everything for you, all you have to do is enjoy.
The thrill: telling someone you love them; The risk: having your heart broken
Unlike roller coaster or hot air balloon rides, there is a risk when you tell someone you love them. Admitting how you feel to someone you care about can be an amazing thing. For starters you're being honest and that's always a good thing. Then of course if the feeling is reciprocated there couldn't be anything better. Of course there is always the risk that they won't say it back and then you'll have just poured your heart out and are left with nothing other than the gutted feeling of vulnerability, rejection and disappointment.
The thrill: moving to a foreign land; The risk: not liking it
A little bit like telling someone you love them, moving somewhere you don't know well is risky. There is always the possibility that you may not like it, have difficulty getting accustomed to their way of life or language or have trouble making friends and settling down. Of course there is always the chance that you will fall in love with a new place, a new people and a new life.
No matter what the risks involved are, taking a leap of faith matures you in a way that few things can. Go for it, brave the unknown and trust that it will embrace you.
