  • We're so quick to limit ourselves, settle down into something comfortable that we can repeat to make a living and then do it over again. It's not that this is bad; in fact, there's a certain consistency involved that's necessary later in life as we look to play our role in growing new life.

    That being said, I believe that we're at a certain age in our lives where we can explore things, try something new, and do quite the opposite of just setting down. We have the opportunity to make something great. It can be nerve-racking at times, it's certainly not a path for the faint of heart. But for those who confidently persist, the experience turns from challenge to becoming quite sweet.
