“Dream big – dream very big. Work hard- work very hard. And after you’ve done all you can, you stand, wait, and fully surrender.” – Oprah Winfrey
A year ago, I was hiking the Tour de Vanoise in the French Alps and was utterly amazed by its pure beauty and vastness. As always with a hike, I felt myself slowly unwind with every step along the way. It was a time of great reflection about the upcoming year.
Now as I find myself nearing the end of summer and facing a major life change in only a few days, I find myself searching once again for focus. For a way to steer me in the path I want to take in this journey of life. Where I want to head this next year and the future.
Which road will I follow? Which direction will I take? The path taken or the path untaken? The future remains so unclear. So out of focus.
Sometimes it is hard to not be full of anxiety when the future is so unknown and life is so unclear. But all it takes is the beauty of life and nature to bring us back into focus and remember what is important. What is real.
“Out of clutter, find simplicity”. – Albert Einstein
“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts”. – Eleanor Roosevelt
