Favorite Quote: “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.” —Mark Twain
This seems so obvious but we all get caught up in doing what we’re “supposed to do”, sometimes that is needed and can be fulfilling, but I believe you can carve a little part out of each day to Explore, Dream & Discover a little part of you, eventually that will add up to a pretty cool life.
