A Sunday Afternoon Reflection

Plymouth, UK (c) Arianna’s Random Thoughts

This quote has been on my heart recently:

“Twenty  years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you  didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail  away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore.  Dream. Discover.”  — Mark Twain, American author

It has gotten me thinking of what I want to achieve with my life.  It is exciting to come up with ideas.

My question for you today is:


In other words, what are you passionate about?

I’d love to hear about your visions, goals, and dreams.  I will be sharing mine in an upcoming post but I thought I’d start by asking you all to participate.

Happy Sunday!

Thank you for reading and your presence at this beach retreat. You Rock! I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts in the comment section below.

See you at the beach!

  1. What makes my heart glow? The dream of living in a small house, on a small lake, writing books, and sharing a peaceful life with a loving person and my animals. Now, I just have to figure out how to get there and I’ll be all set! lol I love the quote, Arianna! I’ve heard it before and have actually quoted it a few times to others. It’s one worthy of repeating. Thanks for the reminder! xoxo Julia

    1. We have similar dreams and things that make our heart glow! So glad we connected. I was at the lake swimming this past weekend and realized I have to incorporate this into my life. I could spend every day on or in the lake. We should help each other get there :)

  2. Going to school right now is a big one for me…I feel like I’m achieving something and not just sort of ‘existing’. :) And I’m loving it…and the people too.

    1. That is awesome Anne! So glad you are having a great experience. I love learning new things, especially something you are so passionate about. I think it is so important to live as opposed to just exisitng. Cant wait to catch up with you more, been a bit behind due to taking holidays. I will get there – promise.

  3. I guess the only fair statement I can make about it all is that I am “redefining” what I am passionate about. I would have said teaching only two years ago. I have always said being published. Now, that has come to fruition. I have a book in mind, have been working on it in my head for about two years. This would be an excellent time to begin in earnest. Problem is that, although my OCD is mostly gone since the stroke (the dear repetitions are almost non-existent), I still have problems sticking with one thing for a long-term project that doesn’t show constant results. That’s why short stories of under 10,000 words has worked well for me so far. I am thinking that, perhaps, I can view the finishing of a chapter as a constant result. We shall see. So, for the moment, “redefining” is it.
