One of my all-time favourite quotes is Mark Twain’s wildly famous:
“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 harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
I knew I had it in me to just get up and go looking for something I wasn’t even able to define at that age..
From that moment on I had my vagabond shoes in place and I set on the way – which way? Every way. Any way.
And exciting ways.
And wrong ways which felt amazing.
And right ways which lead higher.
And dead ends which made me realize that the game is never over.
And challenging ways which drew blood, sweat and tears but in the end elicited laughter.
And those that defined me, broke me in and carved out my persona.
Because the road is my confidant.
