Not Lost Forever..

DAY 213

“I also believe very, very strongly that everybody is the hero/heroine of his/her own life.” – Meave Binchy RIP

“If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.” – Sam Walton

“The man with insight enough to admit his limitations comes nearest to perfection.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“I always thought good photos were like good jokes. If you have to explain it, it just isn’t that good.” ~ Anonymous

“What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?” – George Eliot

“Life is either daring adventure or nothing.” – Helen Keller

“You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.” – Dr. Seuss

One of the most important things I’ve learned – you eventually understand who you are. It’s a priceless aha! moment that can go one of two ways. One, you can accept and begin to encourage activities and adventures that allow you become a more complete You. Or, two, you can shy away from it, perhaps influenced by the words, thoughts, actions of others. Sometimes we choose both. We let the idea of branching out from who we might possibly be at the moment pinball around inside our minds for a while, continuing on whatever path we’ve become comfortable with, & realize at some point that there is more for us to become and discover. A good thing to remember is this: We’re almost home. We’re not gonna be lost forever! [A quote from R during our mid-morning hike behind his house.]

I find it interesting & unique (I like to think so, even though it’s probably not) that I can relate two events, concepts, lessons, textures, etc. together when they’ve had nothing to do with each other.

On a truly unrelated note, a beloved book from my childhood surfaced today! J is now reading The Phantom Tollbooth. I fall more in love with that book each time I open it.

I am thankful for: hikes to far away lands that take place right in your own backyard. aka: imagination.


PS: A very happy 4th birthday to a very special little lady, M!!
