Change... it can be hard. And taking chances? Even more difficult.

I've had a lot of those in my life, radical change and the necessity to take chances. I've lost loved ones and I've had to move and change everything about my life. It hasn't been easy, but almost without exception, it has been worth it.

Take, for example, the move I made from New York City to my western New York State castle... I left behind everything familiar and moved here, to my property near Autumn Vale, New York, about halfway between Rochester and Buffalo. In doing so I thought I was losing everything, my home, my friends, my life. Instead, my best friends Shilo and Pish followed me (LOVE them so much) and threw their lot in with mine. I made friends, I fell in love, and I have rebuilt my life.

I'm married now, and have a new career. I am moving fearlessly (well, not quite fearlessly) forward and together with my friends I am hoping to give back something monumental to the place and people who have welcomed me into their homes and hearts.

It hasn't always been easy, but it's been worth it. 

So... have you had to make changes and take chances? How did it work out for you?
