“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do…Sail away from the safe harbor…Explore, Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
Familiarity feels safe and the safe harbor can be a great place of rest and recuperation…. but growth and expansion occurs beyond the safe harbor. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I, for one, am quite certain that I am here on earth to grow and expand… and maybe help some people along the way.
There is a song by the band Incubus called “Warning.” The first verse goes like this: “She woke in the morning. She knew that her life had passed her by. She called out a warning….”Don’t ever let life pass you by!”
While practicality definitely has its place, seeking new experiences is on my daily agenda. Every day is ripe with opportunity for an eye-opening, soul-stretching experience no matter how subtle it may be…
Leaving the harbor now….
