This is how I feel about life. You have one chance at life... make the most of it! I want to make the most of my life, not mourning over lost chances. Opportunity is always knocking. If you miss one visit, it will always come back in another form. Recently, I found out that I have a seizure disorder. Instead of becoming depressed about it, I decided that I would fight back. I will not allow it to rule my life and make me afraid to do things. I choose to live my life to the fullest. I want to learn all that I can, hence my desire to get a PhD. I want to travel around the world, hence my going to Asia for a semester to teach. I want to be running when the sand runs out and when I die, say that I didn't regret any of the experiences in my life. I want to live life to the fullest!
