Field Trip Dreams
“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”
- Henry David Thoreau
We're all familiar with the nagging fear and sometimes crippling hesitation that comes before a big decision or life changing commitment. With change and growth at the forefront of all of our lives, it is nice to be reminded that we are not isolated in our fears & doubts about the future. Sitting on the shore, with soft sand between our toes and watching the waves crash against the rocky cliffs of the Oregon coast, we are reminded that each moment of fear & joy will pass and be replaced, each big decision will be ensued by yet another, big decision. It is the tireless crashing of the waves that reminds us that it is only with intention and mindfulness that we find our eternity within this time and space -- committing to this life, to each moment and every wave that comes our way fear and hesitation no longer take control.
