Once in a while, we try doing something that we’re not sure we can pull off.  It’s risky, it’s wild, it’s a bit foolish, and the outcome is uncertain.  But something tells us, “I think I’ve got this” and we run with that optimistic notion, well aware that it’s short-lived.  We somehow manage to make it happen and walk away unharmed, holding our heads a little higher than before. There is no better feeling than finding a big chunk of hidden potential.

“Live unbound.”
