    I believe in taking that 'leap of faith' into the unknown, in going for it and taking a risk. Life is too short, I would rather live and fail, then to not live at all.

    Very True

    I'm all in favour of taking time to think about it ... being cautious ... looking at things from all angles before making a decision. That's all just fine ... but sometimes you just know that if you don't grab the bull by the horns and go for it, the opportunity will pass you by...
