throw caution to the wind

  1. (idiomatic) To do something despite the risks.
    • 1998, Mariah Carey, "The Roof":
      I couldn't bear to let you go yet
      So I threw caution to the wind
      And started listening to my longing heart
      And then you softly pressed your lips to mine
      And feelings surfaced I'd suppressed
      For such a long time.
