Reflections on Boldly Exploring Dreams

Friday, January 04, 2008

Today's reflection sent to me in email seems quite appropriate. Thanks once again, Spark, for reminding me of my ultimate goals in life.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

- Mark Twain, American writer"

"Boldly explore your dreams

As we grow older, we reflect upon our lives--the things that we have done and the things we didn't do. Don't let this happen to you! What would you do if you knew you could not fail? Imagine the difference this could make in your life. Imagine how fearlessly you would march across the beach in your bathing suit! Break the habits of fear that are holding you back and forget the hundreds of distractions that seem to justify not trying new things! Achieve your dreams, take risks, build your vision and go boldly towards it."

    I appreicate these thoughts, Sailingchic. I am one who tends to have great dreams....but never quite take all the steps necessary to achieve them. many times I fall short. I need to go ahead and leave that safe harbor. I won't be doing it on the sea, like you, I will do it in my little corner of the world. I don't want to look back anymore and see what I should have done. I want to see what I did....... Thanks for the inspiring words.

    I really love reading your blogs- this one spoke to me.
    I am getting older, and some things are getting harder to do.
    Therefore- I need to DO them! Life does not get easier because you kick back!
