What was the biggest risk I ever took?

I am not sure if you can call it a risk, as I didn’t see it as such, but when I was pregnant with my first child, some people in my industry were convinced that it wasn’t the ‘right’ time to have a child, that once you are out of the loop for a few months, that somehow meant you might be out of the job forever. But you have to choose in life what is most important to you and then I really believe it will all work itself out. You can make it work if you work hard. I was fine with possibly doing a different job if modeling would not work for me anymore. Seven years and 4 kids later, I feel like I have done what I was meant to do and my life is so much richer than I ever could have imagined. Having a family has always been my dream. My job has slightly shifted, but all for the better, and I don’t know if it would have all worked out this way if I wouldn’t have gone with my gut instinct. It’s important to listen to that inner voice always.
