“Load the ship and set out. No one knows for certain whether the vessel will sink or reach the harbor. Cautious people say, “I’ll do nothing until I can be sure”. Merchants know better. If you do nothing, you lose. Don’t be one of those merchants who won’t risk the ocean.” – Rumi
I want to be this person, the one who’s not afraid to take risks. I mean, really, what do I have to lose? I have few bills, no kids; my only real responsibilities are my boyfriend and my cats. I guess, if I knew I had nothing to lose (Jake guaranteeing he’d stick around), I’d do… anything. I could do anything.
If I can do anything and I know I want to do everything, what do I choose?
I think I would do something, I would “risk the ocean,” if I just knew where I wanted to set sail.
Right now I’m just aimlessly floating through the ocean… That’s something, though, right? I’m not losing… right?
