“If you do nothing, you lose.”

“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?
