Sail Away from the Safe Harbor

Mark Twain quote sail away from the safe harbor

Would it be Exhilarating today to do one, small thing out of our carefully crafted comfort zone?

And this quote from my friend SueG:

“This is as true in everyday life as it is in battle: We are given one life, and the decision is ours whether to wait for circumstances to make up our mind or whether to act and, in acting, to live.” ~~ Omar Bradley, General

The Tyranny of Trifles


Friday Quote~ James Van Tholen

God comes to us before we go to him. God came to Abraham when there was nothing to come to, just an old man at a dead end. But that’s God for you.

Junko Tabei

From The Writer’s Almanac:

On this day in 1975, Japanese mountain climber Junko Tabei (born September 22, 1939) became the first woman to reach the summit of Mt. Everest. Tabei began climbing in college, where she was an English major. And when she graduated, she became an avid climber who was well known in Japan.

Two years later, a Japanese newspaper sponsored a team of women to climb Everest. Tabei and 15 other women were selected for the trip and began to train extensively. In early 1975, they began their ascent, but were struck by an avalanche while camping at 6,300 feet. The whole party was buried under the snow and Tabei lost consciousness for a few minutes. Miraculously, the Sherpa guides saved the whole party and even though Tabei hurt her back and legs, she continued to lead the team of women up the mountain. Twelve days later at 12:30 p.m., she reached the summit.

In 1992, Junko Tabei became the first woman to climb the Seven Summits, and today she has climbed 69 of the world’s tallest mountains.

“Technique and ability alone do not get you to the top; it is the willpower that is the most important. This willpower you cannot buy with money or be given by rises from your heart”

WOW! Reflection: Junko was buried under the snow! She lost consciousness! She was injured, saved AND CONTINUED TO LEAD HER TEAM!

My Question: What do I have in my life that holds this same level of commitment for me????

What Do You See in the Tea Leaves?

tea quote

you cannot travel the path until you become the path

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.

Nurture Enthusiasm

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Nothing great is ever accomplished in life without enthusiasm.” You have to have a passion to see something great happen. That’s why you need to nurture your enthusiasm if you want to change.

If you say, “Well, I kind of, sort of, maybe want to change” it isn’t going to happen. If you say, “Well, I’d like to change in my spare time” it isn’t going to happen. But if you are passionate about your goal it will become reality.

Unfortunately, it’s easy to lose your enthusiasm. So how do you maintain it? Speaking from personal experience, it takes more than positive thinking or psycho cybernetics. It takes God in your life.

The word enthusiasm comes from two Greek words. The word en which means “in” and the word theos which is Greek for “God.” To be enthusiastic means to be “in God.” When you get in God, you have enthusiasm deep in your heart.
