Time to Rest at Journey's End

And so we have come to the end of our journey. I have enjoyed it, I hope you have too. I just want to share some last thoughts with you.
I believe it is never too late, until it is too late. Our time here is limited, so if you are still nursing dreams and wishing you had done something or been somewhere, do it now, before it really is too late.
My final quote is from Mark Twain:
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 bow lines, sail away from the safe harbour, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream Discover.

Autumn Leaves are Falling

Autumn leaves are falling. It's time to take stock and look at all you have won, and the things you have lost or let go of. Where are you going, where have you been, where do you want to be? Are you just drifting through your life doing those things that are expected of you? Are you living your life with joy in your heart? We all suffer loss and grief and disappointment, but if we stay true to ourselves and live our lives with joy and integrity we can overcome anything. One day your life will flash before your eyes, make sure it's worth watching.

Summer Time

Summertime, your moment in the sun.
A couple of year's ago in early summer, I was taking a walk along Bournemouth beach and saw this group of young female students taking a break on the beach, just chatting and texting and relaxing in the sun. Sometimes we're so busy we forget to just kick back and relax and enjoy the good stuff. It's important to work and obviously we all need to keep a roof over our heads and our families fed and clothed and comfortable, but responsibility isn't all that life is about. There's sunshine, and raindrops on leaves, and freshly cut grass, birds, bees, flowers and sand between your toes.
Live, laugh, enjoy - the best of times is NOW.
