I’m a firm believer in the notion that you should chase dreams and take risks. How big those risks are is entirely up to you. It doesn’t matter if it’s simply trying something other than your go-to selection at your favorite restaurant, sneaking on to the race-track for a gallop or rocking a very fashion forward stock tie. It is about the way that the adventure makes us grow. Find some time to get out of your comfort zone and see where it takes you.
