A good friend of mine is heading off to Australia at the end of November.

He is one of many Irish people heading down under, for what ever reason they choose to take their chances and travel. The last thing you really want is to be looking back when you are older and saying ‘If only’.

Taking risks is what life is about, if an opportunity pops up like this just say yes and do it.. Only by doing this can we then look back at it and say ‘that’s why I done it’ rather than ‘If’ only’. Risks are risks for a reason, they may pay off but they also might not.

Regret can be a painful thing. Even more painful than doing it and regretting it. We all should take these chances because when they pop up a second time you might not be able to say yes. Time is of the essence.

Remember – Take your chances and the risks YES!
