"You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore."

This was given to me in class tonight and I loved it so much I wanted to share it with everyone.

Hope you enjoy it and I hope that it means something to you as well.

Don

Thanks, Don
It is a worthy share.

It speaks to my stuck places - hanging on to what I know - my survival habits

and it speaks of bravery.

Thanks Thad.

This thought is something I have struggled with as I heal and yet I keep leaving the shore for new oceans. I still can't believe I went back to Massage Therapy school and I still keep trying to convince myself that I did.. It's a battle within myself at times... GRIN.

I'm just trusting my compass (or myself) and knowing that as I sail, I will find the next port or the next world. Can't help but think of Columbus who set off for a new world. That image really strikes close to home for me.
