A Time for New Adventures?

11 Jul

Do you ever have ideas that pop into you head out of nowhere?  The kind of ideas that seem so random but exciting at the same time?

Yesterday morning I woke up craving a move.  Desiring  new city to explore.  Wanting some adventure.  I’m not quite sure what set me off, but I can’t seem to get it out of my head.  And as I was perusing the blog-world early yesterday morning (because I went to sleep far too early the night before) I came across a quote that struck a very intense chord with me;

“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.” – Mark Twain

Don’t you just love those moments when life seems to send you “signs” just when you need them?  It’s pretty magical.  I get crazy ideas in my head all the time and usually I find a way to talk myself out of them using my excellent arguing skills (and possibly my fear of commitment).  These ideas always sound so wonderful at the beginning, but seem to lose their luster with every thought-processing, self-reasoning second that passes.  And then I end up right where I was before…  my boring life.

I’ve thought for a while about moving somewhere new for various reasons.  (1) Finally giving my parents some privacy and getting out of their way.  (2) because I love to travel and explore new places.  (3)  I just need a change.

I can’t say for sure if these ideas will lead me to a new hometown anytime in the near future… but they definitely got me thinking.

Oh, the fun of dreaming!
