Will people think you’re crazy?  Some will.  Will people say no?  Many will.  But you only have one life.  Why not live it in a way that makes your heart sing?

As Mary Oliver once said, “What do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

You’re not the kind of person who can’t do anything.  You’re the kind of person who can.
