Today is THE Day

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t 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.”

  1. Okay, that picture is awesome. Is that a piece of artwork somewhere or did someone just do that to a random egg on the ground? I’m so curious! Also, this is a great quote. Just what I needed right now, I think. 🙂

    1. So glad you like it 🙂
      The most challenging part was not to crack the egg, pad it dry and write inside nor recreate its nest. It was to keep the Attilas at bay ;P
      This pic illustrates my current state of mind too: Yes, It feels good to be in this warm shell, but it has became too small, truth is I really miss the energy of a big city> At least now 😉

      Time to get moving … Cheers to new adventures XXX

      1. Ah, that’s wonderful! I love the story behind this photo. Makes me like it even more. 🙂
        I completely understand where you’re coming from, too–Living with my parents in my hometown for the summer is certainly safe and comfortable, but I’m ready for the energy and excitement I’ll experience with my move to Thailand. 🙂

      2. Yep, you gotta break the egg too to see the world, and there is so much to experience out there 🙂 We’ll may pass by Bangkok at the end of the year, if we happen to meet there we ll take you to our fav fusion resto ever you ll be amazed at the marvels they do with eggs ! X

      3. Precisely!
        Ohh, we should keep in touch. I’m not sure where I’ll be stationed yet for teaching, but I’ll let you know once I find out and maybe we can work something out. What fun that would be!

    1. Same here ! I needed to have it written in front of me like a reminder to finally get moving 🙂 Have a beautiful week dear

  2. One of my fave quotes too! First time I read that was at a museum in Washington DC. I think you are starting to have “cabin fever”. Need to take that hungry soul and those restless feet out wandering again huh? As for the broken egg photo, I thought someone must have run out of paper! 😛

    1. You read me so perfectly. I need to get moving, to get out of here and find excitement again along the road. Thanks for putting it so perfectly clear 🙂 I don’t want to make it sound like a complain, it would sound so ungrateful to say I am bored here. I just have been hit by the Cabin Fever again, big time ! Working on the treatment… XXX

      1. Thats because i am the same way. Fellow kindred spirits “feel” for each other. 😉 And its not a complaint, its just who you are deep inside. Hope you find your treatment!
