‘’Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.’’
One of my favorite quote. And I don’t mean it like leaving everything behind go explore the world and never come back. But more like leaving from time to time, the things we are comfortable with, the people and places we know, to open our hearts and minds to something new. The shore can be anything, material comfort, the person we are at that moment, a relationship we have with someone or even with ourselves. Things we hold on just because we’re good at it, ideas we have of ourselves. The human nature is to stay where comfort and security is because yes, it can and does bring happiness. But some of us have that little fire inside ourselves, that wants more and at a deeper level. If you feel trapped in your life, lost or caught up in a vicious cycle, leave that shore. Once you discover the ocean, you’ll see all the possibilities you have and you’ll understand that you have the inner strength and capacity to control that boat, no matter how big the waves are or strong the wind is.
