In precarious situations many things can sway our decision as to whether or not the risk is truly worth it. I know that in different times of my life I was more willing to not think about the consequences of an action or consider them in some sort of "deal breaker" scenario. Cliff diving (before it was banned ;)) in Tobermory, rock climbing and repelling, white river rafting, trampolines and random dares, and even goofing off on 4 wheelers all seemed like incredible fun and a "good" idea when I was younger yet, now with three small children, I think on my follies as a bit reckless. Do not get me wrong, I do not in the least regret doing any of those things it is just, now, I would have to really think about it before I did something so impulsive. I have a different filter in which my activities must be seen through- one that includes three very young dependents that would be affected directly should something not end well.
