Twenty Years from Now

Puerto Rico, 2010

Twenty years from now you will be more dissapointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the tradewind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

When the smartflyer blog posted the Mark Twain quote, I giggled. Not because the quote is funny but because I have this friend... He uses the quote daily to push us to live a little more.

Whether its to stand closer to the edge when hiking in the mountains or to take a shot with him during a night out on the town...

Because, twenty years from now, you may regret not taking that chance. Because, twenty years from now, you will look back on this moment and wish you did.

Because, twenty years from now, I'm going to look back and wish I did a lot more but I will not regret doing all the things I was not afraid to do.

I urge all of you to take chances in 2011 and beyond, because twenty years from now I don't want you to look back and regret never taking that chance.

Happy New Year!
