“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." -- Mark Twain
I'm not going to lie and say this is a quote I live by. I am not going to say I've had this quote on my mind for some time. No, when I woke up this AM I googled "inspirational quotes about change". And bam-there it was on a list of "58 inspirational quotes". It struck me and here is why:
Before biting the bullet and committing to actually purchasing a camper to convert, I always said "I'm scared I'm going to grow up (I'm currently 30 mind you) and have regrets that I did not actually do something with this skill I am so passionate about." Yes, there are so many things I've accomplished in life so far, like going into remission from a crazy disease thing called #CRPS.. Having a great corporate job that I'm actually pretty good at, and even enjoy. And writing songs and playing them in front of complete strangers at a bar before I was even 21. But where there is love and inspiration, you can’t go wrong.
The first day we met Shasta, our camper, we sat in Mike's jeep and the first thing he said was "We're buying it right?" *Mic Drop*. My response was "I guess? I’m scared. Let’s do it.” In that moment he smiled so big and did an air pump of excitement and I knew he was in it to win it.
I wouldn't be doing this without him. We are going to explore our strengths and fears and tighten our weakness together. We are dreaming HARD and working our butts off to see our dreams come to fruition. We are discovering more about each other than we ever even thought was possible. We are going to make this the best experience for you, my friend, for us and for our community.
Can't wait go get this going!
