I never wanted to be held back from doing something because of fear. I created my own monster because my fear of missing out was always greater than my fear of anything else thrown at me. If I wanted to do something, I would just do it. No one could ever tell me anything different.
It seems like every year around this time; I take off to help or visit someone. This is the second time I spontaneously decided to drive to Texas, planned a trip overnight, and then flawlessly executed it without skipping a beat.
I quickly learned that the best time to visit the third largest city in the U.S, is not April through May due to the unpredictability of the weather. What I also learned was that Chicago is a beautiful city full of wonderful people, delicious food, and gorgeous architecture.
