What’s funny about this, is that everyone you know would look at this and nod enthusiastically. “Truer words” and all that. But if you’ve ever dared to heed these words in real life, you’ve seen how quickly those same people excoriate you for wandering off the beaten path. The well-worn ruts of those that came before you, pointing the way to certainty of some variety, and you can’t help but look to either side for what the others missed.
Just know it’s genuinely OK, and not just bullshit OK. Take those chances, just don’t expect much support. At least not for the chances that matter.
You really will regret it missing those chances, whether you ever know it or not.
