Explore. Dream. Discover.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things 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.” – Mark Twain

Those words are so true, and I’ve been thinking about this quote more than ever lately, especially as I put the final details of my trip together – trying to figure out if I will stay for ten weeks, six months or an entire year – and how to make it all happen.

We may not always know exactly how we are going to do something, or what will open up to us once we make the leap, but I believe the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. when he said, “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

Lao Tzu wrote, “A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”

My journey is leading me to France, therefore, I will take a single step each day towards that journey, and before I know it I’ll be walking down the quay along the River Seine.
