Call it intuition. Call it instinct. Call it faith. Call it God.

Whatever we call it, every now and again we reach crossroads in our lives when it is the only thing we can trust. To ignore it would assasinate the soul, and we know this. So we change course without the certainty of favorable outcomes. We make the decision despite the risks, for the freedom is worth the danger.

A fork in the road has taunted me for months. I have loitered, pondering and distrusting, but no more. Today I set course and quit my full-time job.

I have chosen a path, and I can't go back. The outcome is uncertain, but I will trust, with all my might, whatever this thing is that guides me, softly yet resolutely, recklessly yet assuredly, from within and from without.
