The need to get away from the life I was leading.
Up to this year I have always tried to avoid it as much as possible. But this year I have taken one or two risks and most have come out for the good and those that have not well they are on going problems which will or will not sort themselves out at some point I expect.
Actually realizing that something MUST change or it's not gonna be pretty -- yeah it takes that.
Not having a lot to lose helps a lot. But life is risk. Its all a matter of preparation and calculation
