One of my favorite quotes is by Mark Twain:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that 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.”
I love this quote, and hope that I live my life according to it. Never passing up opportunities, and creating avenues to make my dreams happen. I don't want to ever be "too afraid" or "too nervous" to try something (save for sky-diving, cliff jumping, and bungee jumping). Even if it doesn't turn out well or perfect, I want to at least give it a shot.
We only get one chance at life, and I don't want to have any regrets.
