New beginnings


Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones 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

The first day of spring.

Every year I’m amazed at the complete overhaul that Mother Nature miraculously pulls off.  Within a short couple of weeks she converts a cold barren landscape into a wonderland of vibrant color, teeming with new life and seemingly boundless energy. A remaking of life with infinite possibilities.  Year after year, she embraces the opportunity to do something utterly amazing.

Surely if nature can do it, so can I.  So can you.

On this first day of spring I challenge you to take a page from Mother Nature’s book and reinvent your life in some way. Unmoor yourself from the attitudes and fears that are holding you back. Start something today that, twenty years from now, you’ll be glad you did. Push your boundaries. Take some risks. Set sail for an uncharted part of your life and see what you find.

You have only to look out your window for proof that it’s possible.  It’s never too late; you’re never too old.

Go. Start a new adventure. It’s waiting for you.
