The first thing in my life that this quote applies to is what I lovingly refer to as "The six darkest years of my life" aka graduate school. I was in year 2 of working towards my Ph.D. in Biochemistry when I realized that I had landed in that career path for all the wrong reasons. Let me just suffice it to say that external validation is a big motivator for me in my life and my life choices. I stayed to finish my degree and looking back now, I realize that it was the right thing for me to do because I needed some time to grow up AND I met my amazing husband who has completed me and together we have built a family that is filled with love and laughter. However, I will never again give up 6 years of my life being unhappy and knowing that the fit wasn't right. I will never again fear the unknown because if you are in a situation like that, the one thing you know is that the known is wrong. If you leap into an unknown and it happens to be a bad fit, it is okay. Just learn from the experience, accept it, and move on.
