unless you have done it, you will never know what it feels like to put sound logic and reasoning aside and go off chasing a dream. i think everyone should take the time to face themselves in the mirror and say "it is something i want to do, and there aint a living soul that will tell me i cant and convince me not to! i'll be back when i get back and thats that!"
my experience is one i will take to the grave and never once will i have to say "if i would have only taken the time to do such and such."
i think i even sleep better at night.
anyway, it is personally rewarding to make your big plans and follow them through to the last mile.
That is the best post I've read.
