“A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.” ~William Shedd
We live in such a stellar time in history. Everyone is connected, knowledge is instant, and information is power. It’s so easy to stay attached to the outside world, moreso than ever before. It’s no longer surprising to see five year olds playing with cell phones. Say what? But I hope with this technology, we still take time to unplug the phones, pads, computers, and all other gadgets to take the time to just be still. Just sit a minute, close your eyes and listen to your soul, to your mind and to your heart. It’s in these still, quiet places that we create, and the ability to create is something that sets us apart from other creatures on this Earth. And this ability is hidden within each and every one of us, so find your abilities in this moment of quietness and give yourself the gift to create, to make your life’s journey more memorable.
We each have a history, an inheritance that we will pass on to future generations, so let’s not get so spent by technology we forget to create lasting memories for others. Our journey through life may not be written in the tomes of dusty history books, ferreted away in some library, but surely we will have our pages written in the hearts of those who love us. Our words bound in silk, folded gently and tucked deep inside them, just as our fingerprints are etched on their faces. So in this life, unplug and do, just, Be. Nothing wrong with a life worth living, right?
