If you don't make the attempt, you're not going to achieve it. Though you may have perfectly reasonable and understandable excuses, those excuses won't provide you with anything of value.
Life has so much richness to offer when you jump in with all you have and get yourself involved. Be bold, set your sights high, and move confidently in the direction of what you really desire.
Of course things will not always turn out the way you planned. In fact, they may very well turn out even better than you could have imagined.
Remind yourself of all the ups and downs you've already successfully been through. And realize that whatever you may encounter, you'll find a way to make the best of it.
Then decide precisely how you wish to live your life and begin immediately to start doing it. Whatever your dream may be, the first step can be taken right now.
Do it with enthusiasm, with joy, with the best of expectations and without hesitation. Jump right in and live the richness that is your beautiful, unique life.
