What do we do? How soon do we do it? How do we do it? It's funny, the questions I ask. I had a friend tell me he lives and dies by his decisions.
This same person told me to make a decision and never look back.

I held my baby nephew for the first time a couple days ago. It was surreal. This brand new child with a fresh slate and completely bright future ahead of him. I looked at his mother and was amazed that the sister of my youth is now raising a child.

She made a decision to marry and commit her life to someone she loved, despite what others thought. Out of that love a new life has sprung and a family has begun. She made a decision after counting the cost. She fell in love and never looked back.

I want to do the same. The same friend who told me to never look back also said, "Weigh the options and ask yourself, "What's the worse thing that could happen?"". I have weighed my options. I have counted the cost. I'm ready to take a chance.  I refuse to sit idle just because it doesn't seem realistic.

The people who wait for something to happen are the people with mouths full of excuses.
