“20 years from now you will be disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the one’s you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover” ~ Mark Twain
I love this quote because it’s so true…do you fear rejection? Do you fear failure? Well you’ll be filled with regret years from now if you didn’t pursue those dreams. Life is about following your dreams. If we don’t have dreams, if we have nothing to pursue then I think we lose a bit of that zest for life.
Sometimes days get so crazy and so busy and the thought of just watching t.v. and not doing anything else after the kiddo and baby go to bed is the only thing I feel like doing (and believe me, sometimes t.v. does win out). But then I think, wow when I’m old and grey (and while I feel like I already am old and grey, I’m really not) am I going to remember that episode of whatever sitcom/drama I watched? Or am I going to remember the novel that launched my writing career? So if you’re looking for some food for thought, or some motivation, there it is!
