“[…] I think you should just do things on impulse – if you start attaching conditions, you may never get there.”
And for that, as true or crazy as it might be, life is too short not to be entirely lived. Swinging to extremes is just psychotic. Find that middle ground, take that leap of faith and walk through. It might be the most rewarding, it might be the most painful…but you never know. Rewarding is more appealing; & when you truly want something, it will most probably be worthwhile, and yours. You lose more by not following that path. So, are you walking through yet?
