Image result for take risks if you win you are happy if you lose you are wise

Risks were things I would never do. I would just stick to the script like in a movie but one day something began to change. It was until someone told me to ” Take risks: if you win, you will be happy. If you lose, you will be wise”. I didn’t get it at first but then I understood it. I decided to let go and take risks. It was the first time in my life I felt like I was free. After I realised that all risks should not be done I thought to myself I will take risks when ever I need to.

Lonely Pluto (100WC)

In the cold dark air of space. There  was no light not even a glimpse it was all just darkness. Then suddenly a little glow went passing by.  It was the New Horizons. The space ship that NASA sent out was now where Pluto was but sadly it just zoomed pass saying ” Hi, bye , gotta go”. It was gone and all that was there was lonely little Pluto all on its own. It was getting cold and all the lakes and mountains were icy and frozen. After 247.7 years it orbited around the sun and started to be seen by other planets.
