Standing on that line between the known and the unknown is so exciting! Palms, as they build sweat, are the first indicators of your thrill. Your heart soon follows with an increased beat. Your body is in touch with everything that surrounds it. You feel the sudden changes in the breeze, and you smell flowers from 30 feet away. The excitement is so palpable, you can slice it with a knife and your smile comes from the depth of your stomach.
It’s like a blank page for writers and artists. Only your subconscious truly knows what image will be drawn either through lines or chosen words…
A new world awaits… whether you accept its invitation or not is a decision which is yours and yours alone. In my opinion? Why not take it, grab it by both hands and dance through that doorway. What’s the worst that can happen…
After losing our jobs – we loaded our truck and road-tripped our way to Southern California. We were scared, yet had such hopes and anticipation for our new lives.
Living on a boat in SoCal was cool, but we wanted more! After a year of learning the ropes we set sail for Mexico. We didn’t have a clue as to what to expect or how long we’d be gone. Not a flick of regret was felt during this trip.
Paddling daily always staying close to shore, my friend told me “You know I paddled all the way out of the bay to the buoy the other day…” of course I had to do that too right then and there on the spot. What a feeling to be out in the open on real swells!
When you’re standing on that line – do you cross it? Or do you back away staying well within your comfort zone? I hope you know that magic does not happen unless you accept the challenge.
