isn’t everything worthwhile a gamble? – donna tartt
tomorrow i leave to go back to school…after leaving my job and a salary…to start a program in forestry with the long term objective of getting a job in the national park service and/or a forestry organization.
being a ranger or doing something involved with forests was always a sort of day dream that i thought was a nice whimsical thing to muse over, but never thought it would be…could be…something serious to pursue, to change my life for in order to ‘give it a go.’
but then i thought about how risks are worth taking if for no other reason to know later on that it wasn’t “it.” at least you would know and not wonder forever what could have been.
after all, “isn’t everything worthwhile a gamble?”
