Excerpts:

Why continue in unhappiness?  Change is inevitable, but most people fear it.  Better the devil you know than the one you don't know sort of thing.   That attitude leads to a mundane, unhappy existence.  I want to live and thrive and be about living my life, not watch it pass me by while I sit on the bleachers and wish I could or worse, wish I would have gotten in the game.

It is a brave step, that first step off the bleachers. Pulse quickening, mouth going dry, butterflies in the stomach yet continuing to put one foot in front of the other, moving away from the bleachers. The scenery is all new and fresh. Nothing is familiar because I haven't gone this way before.

Life is a grand adventure. It becomes thrilling and exciting; an element of danger is always there. Safe and orthodox is not safe, now is it?   Because if you remain in a safe job, doing the safe thing that sucks the life out of you, you are dying a little each day inside. Eventually high blood pressure, pot bellies, drinking and eating in excess and various other vices because the insanity of safe breaks our need to live, breathe, and thrive.

An excerpt of Ellie’s fiction writing is also included.
