    Missed Opportunities, Wasted Time

    It's something I've been thinking about a lot lately.  I feel I have wasted the past few years.  So many opportunities I didn't take, so many experiences I could have had but didn't, so much I could have learned.  It's all been due to fear.  No more.  I'm...
