Throwing caution to the wind

Have you ever dreamed about something, but have been too cautious to actually go after it?

I tend to be like that.  I weigh major decisions in my life with great care and diligence.  I discuss them endlessly with a trusted few.  Many times I choose the path that is least risky.

But everyone needs change, transition and risk.  These are qualities in life that don’t necessarily always go together, but can make life much more interesting and personally fulfilling.  I found a quote from Mark Twain yesterday that sums it up perfectly.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

So I’m taking an opportunity that came my way to take a risk and see where life leads.  I’m going to work on my business, House on Payne web design, full-time.

There isn’t going to be a better time to pursue this.  It’s scary and exciting and full of emotions I can’t yet interpret.  This has been my dream.  It may not work out.  But then again — it just might.

Stay tuned.
