I have been a huge Chuck fan since the Nerd Herder first accidentally downloaded the Intersect into his brain, back when he was a brave but somewhat bumbling wanna-be spy. Over the seasons, Chuck went from needing to be rescued to doing the rescuing as his abilities and self-confidence increased. In the season 4 finale, when Sarah was shot by the Norseman device and left with only 12 hours to live, Chuck was willing to throw his entire career away and risk everything to save her by teaming up with the biggest enemy his family, and possibly the CIA has ever known- Alexi Volkoff. While it all ended up working out for Chuck and Sarah, my own attempts to throw caution to the wind and just go for it have been met with mixed results.
When I was 19, I got married to my first husband despite all warnings from my friends and family. That didn’t turn out so well. It’s not that he was a bad guy or anything, I was just too young and definitely not ready to settle down. When I was 23, I ran to the other side of the world and got married to my second husband. I lived in Japan for two years, and that was pretty awesome, so that turned out well for a long time.
Other than that, I’m a pretty cautious person. I don’t really “go for it” as often as I probably should, especially since now I have Jacob and he is my first consideration in everything I do. I think deep down I’m a bit of a realist, even though I prefer to think of myself as a dreamer. Maybe that’s the problem–I’m willing to dream big but too scared to take steps to achieve those dreams. Hmmm, this WB Word of Mouth project is turning out to be very therapeutic! Definitely something to keep in mind for my next therapy session!
