Inspirations; Part 7

Life is very stressful for me right now and I am feeling the effects in the core of my being. I have a sneaking suspicion that it will get worse over the next week or two as I finish up my time at the office and leave my lovely home behind in the hopes of a brighter future. And I hope that once that part of this journey is done some of the stress will fade away.

To get me through to that, however, I need inspiration. So I’m back to finding wise words to ponder.

Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.

Your current safe boundaries were once unknown frontiers.
~ Anonymous

If your ship doesn’t come in, swim out to it.

    Seem here no painful inch to gain
    Far back, through creeks and inlets making,
    Comes silent, flooding in the main.
