What’s the biggest chance you ever took? Did it work out? Do tell!
I think that one of the biggest chances I took was moving out of home when I was 19.
Living in a country town, there’s only so much that you can achieve, and there’s a very limited future for you… well, unless you want to work on a farm, and even then, that’s not a certainty. A lot of people that I went to school with still live in that town, and have just settled into whatever life brought them, whereas I was determined to get out of there and do something with my life.
I knew that I would either move to Sydney or Melbourne, and the school that I got into was in Melbourne. It was such an incredibly daunting choice to make, and something that terrified me, but also excited me at the same time. It’s a decision that I certainly do not regret whatsoever. It’s allowed me to grow as a person and experience so much that I would have never been able to had I stayed in the country.
Great post! I certainly agree breaking out on your own young has its own challenges but it is almost certainly worth it for the experiences it gives both good and bad. Well done! 🙂
