You think you have time.


Did something slightly sporadic yesterday, booked a plane ticket to Australia with one of my best friends whom I've known since childhood.

It's something we've talked about for years. Tossed around the idea. Said we'd go "some day".

If there's one thing my niece has taught me, and then my own scare, it's mirrored in that Buddha quote above.

We always think we'll have time.

Was it a huge chunk of money? Yep. Should I have spent that much on one airplane ticket? Probably not. But you know what... I can promise you right here and now, I'll never get the chance again. So I did it. We did it.

And I know it will be SO worth it in the end.
