“At some point, you have to make a decision.

Boundaries don’t keep other people out, they fence you in.

or you can live your life crossing them.

But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross.

Here’s what I know.

If you’re willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance,

the view from the other side… is spectacular.”
