Catch the Winds


Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed in the things that you didn’t do than the ones you did do, so throw off the bow lines.

Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover!”

- Mark Twain




Have a beautiful Weekend!!

Shellbelle said...

Oh my gosh, this quote is so true! My little business I'm starting with my driftshells is something I've wanted to do for so long and put it off for various reasons. I'm so much happier now than I've been for years. Yep, I sailed away from the safe harbour and I'm loving every minute!!!!

I'm going to have to use this quote in an upcoming post, it is perfect!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Shellbelle said...

Oh, I LOVE your new blog button! Julie is a special blogger friend of mine and has inspired me over and over again. She sent me one of her photos last year and I had it proudly hanging in my studio until I moved. Can't wait to get settled somewhere and be able to see it again everyday. She's amazing!

P.S. I love the look of your button on my background, it fits in perfectly!

Thank you for these words today Michelle! Funny how I'm becoming more of a dreamer as I get older...I used to be such a realist...maybe when we get older our dreams are just a bit more reachable? Something to think about! :-)

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Ahhhh...I am catching the wind right now...loving the fact that I have an ENTIRE WEEK OFF and that creativity awaits me, even if all I do is read and learn and write and create. THE SNOW IS MELTING DEAREST! And there is a wild rabbit in the yard that has found a patch of grass, has eaten to his chubby little heart's content and is now snoozing...Spring is showing it's signs around here! HOW ABOUT YOU??? THank you for visiting sweet one, Blessings to you, Anita
