“Mom had always taught us to examine decisions by reversibility… Not the road less traveled, but the road with an exit ramp.” – The End of Your Life Book Club
Obviously I haven’t been able to get The End of Your Life Book Club out of my head!
If you have the luxury to make changes in your life, you should do it. If you want to try living downtown, or living on your own, try it. If you want a new job in a different field, or if you want to find a job you actually like, find it. If you want to follow your passion, follow it. If you have the chance to make a change in your life, don’t take the road less traveled just to prove a point – take the road that leads to your own happiness.
But what if it isn’t all that I wanted it to be? What if it sucks?
Well, take the exit ramp or make a U-turn (when it is safe to do so) and start again. A lot of times you have a chance to move back in with your parents or get your old job back but you’re too proud to do so. It’s your duty to make yourself happy.
I’ve got a busy couple of days coming up between wedding rehearsals, work, homework, a wedding, and Thanksgiving but I’ll still be posting, tweeting, instagraming, and yapping.
All the while, I’ll try to enjoy the chaos!
Why not, right?
