Explore Dream and Discover!

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.  Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover!”   Mark Twain.

As I wrote this today I am taking in this message little deeper these days. I have chosen a course change in my life that feels really good and now feel that I am ready to allow the trade winds to take me in whatever direction is best.

We often get caught up in the storms of life and get set adrift and our first response is to find a safe harbor.   A safe harbor is important for much needed rest and renewal but like the old proverb says : ”You can’t prevent birds of sorrow from flying overhead but you can stop them from building nests in your hair” No nests here!!

Spring is on the way (yes I know it does not look that way :) ) there is something in the air feels like the earth is getting ready for new growth.  When I feel this stir I know that it is time to set sail and step out of my comfort zone again.

My life is always evolving and changing and for the most part I love the journey.  My soul has always needed to continue to grow and learn.  Fear holds me back at times but I am learning to simply move with the fear and make it my ally.

I started a new journey and feel confident that I am ready for the next evolution of my life.  What is stirring in you? What new journey are you ready for? Don’t allow fear to hold you back, just bring it along! Are you willing to set sail and leave the safety of the harbor? As Mark Twain says maybe it is time to  “Explore, Dream, Discover” once again!
