Daring Something 


Evening thoughts:

If you dare nothing, then when the day is over, nothing is all you will have gained.~~Neil Gaiman

Follow your bliss, and doors will open for you that you never knew existed. Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.~~ Joseph Campbell

The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.~~W. M. Lewis

Remember what Bilbo used to say: “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”~~J.R.R. Tolkien

When you set out on your journey to Ithaca, pray that the road is long, full of adventure, full of knowledge. ~~Constantine P. Cavafy

Carpe, carpe. Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.~~Professor Keating in Dead Poet’s Society

But, if you happened to not quite seize the day today, you can always pick back up tomorrow and dare something, follow your bliss, and perhaps, do something extraordinary. Because as Scarlet O’Hara reassured herself in Gone With the Wind: After all, tomorrow is another day.

Rest easy tonight. You’ve got a big day ahead of you.
