I recently got in contact with an old mentor. Not only is he a knowledgeable guy, he's generally a nice guy too. The kind of guy that takes the time to work things out with you. The kind of guy that tells you your are being an ass when you are being an ass. Turns out he's now at Nimbus studios. Yeah, there's a ton of studios out there. This one happens to have Garth Richardson at the helm. So I was invited to come out and see the facilities. I have yet to take him up on this offer.
I don't know. I've got cold feet. Recently they've been searching for interns too. Ugh. There are things stopping me. My kids. My job. My debts. I'm so freaked out that this opportunity is passing me by. I want to take the risk but am I willing to put my livelihood on the line? I mean, I would love to just up and go. Leave my job and do it. I imagine that taking such a step would involve some serious dedication but I'm not sure I can afford to put my family at risk in order to accomplish this.
So I read this the other day on his facebook page:
Living life to the fullest means caring more than others think is wise, is taking more risks than others think is safe, is dreaming more than others think is practical and knowing you can trust your power within...
Stuck between a rock and a hard place. What kind of chances am I willing to take in order to further my own personal goals? Especially when what I do will directly affect the people I'm responsible for.
