Friends and family,
There come times in your life where you stand at a great crossroads. As you know we’ve been working nonstop to bring our passion of creating food and beverage to a brick and mortar location in Jacksonville. Truth be told, our biggest passion in life is that of travel. Our primary objective was to establish a self-sufficient business that would fund our journeys. As we got deeper into the development of our concept and things began taking hold, we found ourselves inexplicably off. We began mapping out how our life would be with the business and it was looking to be a minimum three years of commitment before any reasonable vacation time was allowed. Our biology also began speaking up and our desire to one day have a kid set in. Three years from now at the age of thirty one baby making would take precedence over travels. The next thing we know, we’d be fifty and have never seen the things we wanted to see. Sure, we’d have a successful business and a kid or two, but we would be neglecting our true love in life. It was a discussion not taken lightly. Ultimately, we decided we are very young to open a business and it would be too much of a sacrifice at this time. If all we were doing was creating a business to travel, but we have the means to do it now, then why would we not go see the world while we’re in our prime?
The cautious man would argue against the uncertainty of tomorrow and what may or may not happen, but the fifty year old Tyler and Christy who never left the shores of Florida would look back and urge the two younger versions of themselves to take the risk and do what they love most: see the world. All too often you hear people say how they have always wanted to see Rome, Paris, etc, etc. What is it you think that stopped them? Money? The fear of not knowing what’s going to happen next? If you make travel a priority, money is not the issue. Perhaps then it is the fear? All the what ifs run through their heads. One ‘what if’ that rarely gets asked is what if I find true happiness and overwhelming joy knowing that I pursued my dreams and everything went right?
Let the aged man sit on his laurels, 9-5 safety career, and cast doubt on our decision, but to hell with it. Nobody is getting out of life alive anyways, you might as well make yours as interesting and fun as possible. Everybody’s life begins and then it ends. Follow us as we paint colorful brush strokes on all those magical details in between.
