Explore. Dream. Discover.



“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


This has been a popular topic amongst my friend and even a few acquaintances lately. If you're passionate about something, do it. Go for it. Reach it. Live it. Your life is here one day and gone the next. Don't regret not making the most wild, audacious, daring, adventurous memories of your life because the fear of what if's got in the way. I'd have to say my biggest regrets are during the seasons I let the business of life rob me of what existence is all about. Stop thinking so much and just say yes to the adventures life throws at you.

  3. I am loving your outfit in this pictures! And I'd give anything for hair like yours. But I also love the quote and I wish I would follow my own dreams more instead of listening to all the voices around me. Thanks for reminding me to dream big and to follow my desires (or those little adventures that pop up time and again).

  9. That skirt looks gorgeous on you! I needed that quote so badly today. I'm leaving for study abroad in 17 days and have been really nervous today for some reason! But Mark is a wise man and has never lead me astray. Sometimes the best things in life come from leaving your safe harbor.

  10. I love these pictures (as always), but your words are what I can really relate too! My dad inspired the same advice to me in high school during my sophomore year when I was seriously considering quitting softball. Now that I'm in college I'm so glad I stuck with it. I have no regrets and really miss it. Plus, I only strengthened my friendships.

  13. Such a great post. And I'm loving your skirt. Amazing. August is definitely a time to start new things. Maybe it's the change of the seasons that make August into September such an inspiring time! :)

  16. Beautiful. I've been planning a trip to the Grand Canyon soon. I don't really have the money, but this sorta thing gives me encouragement. You can't take money with you.

  17. I definitely agree with this, and it's been on my mind lately a lot. The past year and a half have really held a lot of changes for me and really made me think about my life and what I'm doing with it. I regret so many things already and it's mostly the things I didn't do. So I'm trying not to make those same mistakes again.

  22. That's my all time favourite quote. If I ever pluck up the courage to get a tattoo then it's definitely going to be 'explore dream discover'

  24. This is one of the most inspiring posts I've read. Thank you. I literally forwarded it to all my friends and family. I think your quote about Mark Twain's quote is better than what he said ;] Thanks for the inspiration.
