Movin', movin'

So, I'm in Dallas now. Well, not really Dallas, just north of it in Carrollton, but it's about a 20 minute drive to downtown Dallas, which I passed along the way. I got to do some thinking on the 3-hour drive, and before I got here I was thinking to myself that I was maybe making a mistake...maybe I should stay in Austin for a little longer...maybe forever. But, as I made it closer to Dallas, and after passing downtown, I felt a little jolt of excitement. I'm not sure where it came from or what it was for, but if I had to guess, it was the crazy, independent, thrill-seeking side of me anticipating all of the energy that's housed in a big city. It's like taking a trip to New York, and finally arriving at that little corner in Times Square where all the energy seems to be emerging from. Even though it only lasted a couple of seconds, I feel content that I've made it here and I'm going to give it all I've got to find some sort of success here. If not, at least I'll have tried.

Get it girl! It is yours for the taking.

Keep that thrill seeking Sarah out! She may be tired from all that you have put her through, but she still has a hell of a lot left in her.

Love you!

"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you do. So throw off the bowliness, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream. Discover."
