What do you say to taking chances?

Posted Jun 10 2010 5:31am
Don't know much about your life.
Don't know much about your world, but
Don't want to be alone tonight,
On this planet they call earth.

You don't know about my past, and
I don't have a future figured out.
And maybe this is going too fast.
And maybe it's not meant to last,

But what do you say to taking chances,
What do you say to jumping off the edge?
Never knowing if there's solid ground below
Or hand to hold, or hell to pay,
What do you say...
~Celine Dion, Taking Chances~
The last few days, I stepped out of my suburban working mother role and into a world where I was a rock star.

I went to a conference where I was surrounded by folks in the same niche area of work. I had great conversations. I felt smart. One person asked me if I'd be interested in moving to a completely different state for a job in their organization. I danced until 4am. Drank way too many cocktails. Contemplated not getting on the plane home.

I want to pack a bag and run away. Some place where no one knows my history. Where I can start fresh. Leave my past behind. Be happy - or at least have different challenges.
