“A ship in harbor is safe — but that is not what ships are built for.”
— John A. Shedd
Hope this first month of the New Year is going well for everyone.
I like the quote above as it indicates that it may be more comfortable staying put, and not venturing into the unknown but that’s not allowing ourselves to set sail into new adventures when our spirit is calling us to do so.
Over the past several months, we have been involved in selling our house as we felt called to reduce, and loosen from our home base, our ‘dock’ so to speak. This choice was made with good intentions, plans, and goals; however, there have been some unexpected twists and turns along the way which has made the process a challenging one.
Much like a stormy night at sea, we are riding the waves, as we are still in the midst of our moving journey. Though we are moving only a short distance away, it is requiring some letting go, and surrendering,
However, we know that this too shall pass and smoother sailing is ahead. We shall sea where this new period in our life takes us.
One way or the other, an adventure awaits.
When was the last time you ventured out of your comfort zone, and how was the ride?
Meditate on these encouraging words.
