Mark Twain said, “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 harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
By necessity, we have some order in our lives. We have responsibilities at home and at work. We have predictable routines that make our lives easier.
Unless we are careful, this predictability will steal from us opportunities to experience a fuller life.
So let’s make an effort to “explore, dream, and discover” this year so when we look back, we won’t be disappointed with the “adventures” that didn’t happen.
