Are you a big risk taker? Or are you more inclined to play it safe? Whichever camp you fall into, Bev and Marina have got you covered in this week’s episode.  As far as taking risks is concerned, Bev and Marina both grew up as cautious children, but Bev reveals that these days she does take more risks. Having said that, Marina is still trying to persuade her that sitting in a room with black labrador, Storm, is a low risk activity!  In our increasingly risk averse culture, have we lost perspective on the things that we might otherwise take a chance on? And does the fact that the media loves to catastrophize certain things mean we have become more fearful of taking risks? The ladies discuss this and much more.   Risk is a crucial part of living a rich and fulfilling life, and while it will always carry the possibility of failure, is this not how we learn and grow? There may be (relative) danger in taking a risk, whether that's getting our heart broken or getting our leg broken; but as long as we’re taking calculated risks rather than being reckless, there is joy to be found beyond the fear. And isn’t that what it’s all about?   So when it comes to making our life As Good As It Gets, perhaps the greatest risk of all is not daring to take one.    See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
