On uncertainty and quality of life on moving day…

On uncertainty and quality of life on moving day…

As you know, we are making a big life transition right now to live our dreams. Emotions are a roller coaster right now. No, we don’t regret what we are leaving behind… but there has been some worry, of course, as that last paycheck comes in and the last day of being insured goes by. Then this arrived in my inbox:

“The quality of your life is in direct proportion to the amount of uncertainty you can comfortably deal with.” ~Tony Robbins

That pretty much sums it up nicely. Uncertainty and risk are scary, but not as scary as stagnating and growing bitter over the “what-ifs”. And, each time we’ve faced risk and uncertainty we’ve come through alive. Sure it’s uncomfortable, yes we could fall flat on our faces, we could end up worse off… but if we don’t try then we will never know.

So today we set off to join Tanglefoot Ranch in Southern Illinois to begin a new part of our journey. We can’t wait to dig in and begin building a foundation for the exciting plans we’ve made at Tanglefoot.
