“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 harbour. Catch the winds in your sails. Explore, dream, discover.”

Mark Twain

In 20 years time, I’ll be 40 years old. Scary. Better heed Mr Twain’s advice sooner than later!

“Don’t give into your fears. If you do, you won’t be able to talk to your heart.”

Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

I am going away travelling in Europe in a few days and I’m not gonna lie, I’m a little nervous to be facing all these new cultures and systems without someone there to look after everything. It’ll be good though; it is something I want to and have to do. If I gave into that anxiety and didn’t go, there would be a whole lot of stuff that I’d miss out on, and I think this quote and that thought rings true for many things.
