You fall, you rise, you make mistakes,
you live, you learn.
You’re human, not perfect.
You’ve been hurt, but you’re alive.
Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive
– to breathe, to think, to enjoy,
and to be with people you love.
Sometimes there is sadness in our journey,
but there is also lots of beauty.
We must keep putting one foot in front of the other,
even when we hurt,
for we will never know
what is waiting for us
just around the bend…
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you did not 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.”
I am homesick for a place
that I am not sure even exists.
One where my heart is full,
and my soul understood.
This is one of my photos of a Medusa Luna del Pacifico (Moon Jelly) from my trip to Monterey, California. I fell in love with the Moon Jellies because they may ride the currents for a while, but when they need to, they pulse forward – never looking back. The unknown may be scary, but never discovering what lies ahead is even more frightening.
