The best day of your life is the one in which you decide
your life is your own.  No apologies or excuses.
No one to lean on, rely on, or blame.
The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey –
and you alone are responsible for the quality of it.
This is the day your life really begins.

The gift is yours and it’s up to you to pursue it.  But that doesn’t mean that you chuck it all and just immediately start following your passion.  When you decide your life is your own, you still have to account for your responsibilities such as family and debt, etc.  Then you have to figure out your goals.  Then you have to have a plan to get to those goals.  One step follows the next.
