Losing sight of the shore

Friday, February 01, 2013

Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to
lose sight of the shore.
-Andre Gide

I'm retaking a self help course and today's lesson is on facing the unknown and relishing the adventure.

I used to be an adventurer! I used to look forward to change with open arms! Now I am in a rut, and don't look forward to much of anything. (There are several reasons for this but they no longer matter) Today I take back my adventurous spirit, my child like curiosity, and Love of life!

I have that little girl...night before Christmas...bubbling excitement in my tummy! Oh the delicious anticipation of the unknown! I don't know what is going to happen, but I know it will be great!

We never live; we are always in the expectation of living.

I have never believed that if I waited for for the perfect time and for everything to fall in to place, then i would be happy! Deep down I have always known that my happiness comes from within and if I wait for everything to be perfect, I would never be happy! Being happy is not the destination! It is the journey. I'm in no hurry to arrive at what ever destination I am moving towards, I am loving the joy the journey...THAT is what is important to me!

I lost myself for a while...certain events in my life over the past four years, drove my real self into hiding so deep I never thought I would find her again. *smiles* It's about freaking time she came back! *LOL* I am so excited.

I am ready to continue my adventure into the unknown, to lose sight of the shore and discover who I am and who I am becoming! To face and embrace my make my life what I want it to be!

Brightest blessings,
