Have you ever felt so strongly about something that you were willing to chuck away your entire life to go discover it?

If you have and didn't do it, why not? What did you have to lose? What did you have to gain?

What is truly important in life? Money? Stability? Or is it the pursuit of happiness?

This time last year I was on an adventure that changed my life. I quit my job, left my apartment, had no money but decided to just do it. I went to a foreign country to finally meet someone in person. Things didn't work out between us but I will never forget the experience. Never before had I so wholeheartedly thrown myself into the unknown.

It has been a year and I am still recovering on some levels. On others I am stronger than ever before.
