Recently I've been thinking about all of the things I'd "like" to be doing and realized that I have not been doing any of them. I don't quite know why this is...I guess things just come up and before I know it, my day is filled with the stuff that keeps me from doing all of those fun things. And sometimes, I think I'm a little too comfortable with the way things are...I've got to learn to step out of that comfort zone and try new things.
So I'm going to try to make a promise to myself to stop making excuses and "filling up" my day with the stuff that won't matter years from now. I don't want to look back and wonder where the last decade has gone!
As I was thinking about all of this, I remembered a great quote that put my feelings to words...
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore.Dream. Discover"
-- MARK TWAINI'm ready to explore and dream and discover. In fact, when I think about it, I love doing all of those things! But I've also got to be ready to sail away from the safe harbor. I think a lot of us face this challenge. So if you're feeling like I do - like you're ready for something new - make the effort to fit some exciting stuff into your life.
How do you try to keep things exciting in your life?
