I'm Sailing Away...

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. -Mark Twain

An opportunity presented itself to me that I couldn't pass up. So I quit my job last night. My perfectly good, perfectly safe, perfectly content job. I took a risk and am throwing caution to the wind.

I couldn't live with myself if I didn't jump on this ship. So I jumped. And it's gonna be great.

Plus, it helps knowing I'm a damn good swimmer.

  16. Oh how fun (whatever it is you are doing). I'm not really sure I know either. But I wish you the best of luck. I'm proud of you for being so fly by the seat of your pants. I don't know if I'd ever have the guts to do that.
