A couple of months ago, when I had my surprise visit to Duluth, I was walking around one night shooting cityscapes when I passed this storefront window. You've all probably seen these wooden blocks featuring inspirational sayings that have become very popular in the stores. I thought it was kind of neat to see a bunch of them all in one spot like this.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things 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.
What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
Your journey has molded you for the greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don't think that you've lost time. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time.
Leap and the net will appear.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face... do the thing you think you cannot do.
Happiness is a journey, not a destination. for a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one.
